DIY Workshop – Build your own Home Swinger – Yuri Landman

March 7th 2019 – Bristol, UK – An event that should interest fans of experimental and microtonal instruments!

The Home Swinger is a simplified version of Landman’s legendary Moodswinger instrument he built for Liars in 2006.

Yuri Landman presents a 5-hour long Do-It-Yourself workshop whereby participants will leave with a finished Home Swinger instrument as well as a strong understanding of its structure and workings.

Participants require no special skills and the difficulty of the process has been compared to building a piece of IKEA furniture!

In advance of the workshop Yuri will prepare the component parts of the instrument for the participant to use in construction. These include: 4 pieces of ready shaped wood in the required sizes and predrilled with holes, easy to employ machine heads for the strings, one pickup (good quality, equal to Fender), an on/off switch, a jack output, a few screws, bolts and nuts and some metal for the bridges, as well as two sets of strings.

The participants pay 110 Pounds for their own materials. Each workshop is limited to 10 persons.
Duration of the workshop is approximately five hours.

If you would like to attend then you can RSVP on the Facebook event. The event will go ahead if there is enough interest. I intend to join the workshop too so maybe I will see you there!
