Make & Play! Slime Synthesizer Sinfonia (4.30pm-6.00pm) This workshop features the “Slime Synthesizer,” a unique musical instrument that is played by touching or transforming slime, and is led by the creators themselves. By manipulating the fluid, it is almost like you are grasping clouds of air. Winner of a New Face Award at the 18th Japan Media Arts Festival, the electronic musical instrument was also a big hit at Maker Faire Tokyo. In this workshop, participants will make the slime and combine it with the synthesizer to create their own musical instruments. Alongside learning hands-on about the basics of science such as the three states of matter (solid, gas and liquid) and electrical resistance, participants can also experience the fun of making their own electronic musical instruments, which is now a major trend in Japanese maker culture. The workshop will end with all the participants playing their instruments together and performing an original symphony for Maker Faire Singapore. Through learning about the foundations of science and making their own devices, participants can experience a new style of performance and musical expression completely different to what is played with conventional instruments and music. Discover the possibilities and creativity of DIY and maker culture! Suitable for 10-15 year olds
Organized by the Japan Foundation Asia Center.
Supported by Gakken Plus Co.,Ltd.

Make & Play! Catch the Sound of Singapore (1.45pm-3.15pm) In this workshop, participants will create a unique soundscape using original gadgets that collect everyday sounds and then transform into musical instruments. The instructor is a musical instrument interface researcher who combines his knowledge of toy design and electronic technology to develop “co-playing musical instruments” that function as tools for enjoying music regardless of musical talent or physical disability. In the workshop, participants will each produce their own gadget that they will use to conduct fieldwork in the Maker Faire Singapore venue. They will search for the fascinating sounds that lie concealed in the familiar world around us, collecting the noise of crowds, machines, the wind, cars, insects and birds, or tapping objects in the venue to produce strange new tones. After the workshop, all the participants will join together to play their sounds, creating a special soundscape of Maker Faire Singapore. Along with acquiring foundational knowledge of electronics by making their own devices, participants can also learn hands-on about the basics of soundscape design, which rediscovers the everyday through recording and playing sounds. (Please note that a soldering iron will be used for part of the workshop.) Organized by the Japan Foundation Asia Center.Supprted by Gakken Plus Co.,Ltd.
