The Synchronator is a device to convert electronic audio signals into a composite video signal.
The device has been developed by Bas van Koolwijk and Gert-Jan Prins in 2009, and has a steadily growing number of users ever since.
During this workshop, we will introduce you to the background, techniques and use of this device for recording and to opportunities for live improvisation. Following this, each participant is invited to work with the Synchronator devices and television monitors, ask questions, and engage in hands-on experiments.

Your instructors: Gert-Jan Prins, Bas van Koolwijk

Background needed for this workshop: Affinity with direct interaction between image and sound.
Bring your devices to connect to the Synchronator!
