Getting Bent: How to Build a Simple Contact Microphone

Contact mics are inexpensive, easy to build, and and provide a simple, fun source of new sounds for performance and recording. In just two hours we will show you how to make a simple, effective contact microphone from surplus and discarded materials. Students are encouraged to bring random objects to amplify - sheet metal, cardboard boxes, acoustic instruments, slinkies, coat hangers, textured plastic objects, etc.

No previous electronics experience is required!
