Assuming no technical background whatsoever, this workshop guides the participants through a series of sound-producing electronic construction projects, from making simple contact microphones to building circuits from scratch. The emphasis is on constructing inexpensive but versatile electronic tools that fill the gaps in computer-centric music production, in particular: alternative microphones for creative sound recording and amplification, and performable electronic instruments that have the tactile quality of conventional acoustic ones.  The projects covered can include:
•        Miking and coil pickups
•        A basic monitor amplifier
•        Circuit Bending
•        Transforming a radio into a poor-man’s Cracklebox
•        Oscillators controlled by potentiometers, light sensors,
        skin conductivity, pencil drawings, fruit, etc.
•        Analog signal processors

New York born and raised, he spent most of the 1990s in Europe, where he was Visiting Artistic Director of Stichting STEIM (Amsterdam), and a DAAD composer-in-residence in Berlin. An early adopter of microcomputers for live performance, Collins also makes use of homemade electronic circuitry and conventional acoustic instruments. He is editor-in-chief of the Leonardo Music Journal, and a Professor in the Department of Sound at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. His book, Handmade Electronic Music – The Art of Hardware Hacking (Routledge), has influenced emerging electronic music worldwide.
