This workshop offers the possibility of introducing yourself into the world of DIY or home-made microphones through the construction of two types of microphones that allow us to record an infinity of sound and/or musical situations. We can choose between making a contact microphone, a pair of binaural stereo microphones or both.
Contact microphone: ideal for amplifying any string or percussion instrument, it also serves to capture resonances from contact with materials such as wood, metal, water, etc … These microphones can be used as hydrophones and listen to sounds below the Water.
Binaural stereo microphones: ideal for capturing ambient sound, instruments or field recordings, concerts, lectures, interviews or conferences. The binaural microphones are ideal to start in the world of field recordings or simply improve the sound quality of various devices such as SLR cameras, portable recorders, etc.
