Hearding Cats Collective will offer a series of four classes in electronic instrument design taught by veteran DIY synthesist Mike ‘Doc Mabuse’ Murphy, plus one master class on Sunday 12 Nov 2017 in which Doc will be joined by Martin Freeman & Bbob Drake.

These classes are geared toward artists wanting to acquire a foothold in DIY audio circuit skills . They will not require prior experience nor will they require a mathematics or engineering background, nor will soldering be a part of the curriculum, as all projects will be rendered on breadboard. Tools, components, and breadboards will be provided.

The fee will be $40 for all 5 classes. The master class is set for 12 November, 2017,  but the remaining class times are still TBD, October-November. Class size is small and very limited. If you are interested, have questions, or both, please contact Doc at drmabuce@gmail.com.

Mike ‘Doc Mabuse’ Murphy is a veteran designer of dozens of one-of-a-kind ‘Electronium’ instruments and analog synthesizer modules including the Noise Ring, a collaboration with Grant Richter, founder and chief designer of the Wiard Synthesizer Company. Doc taught analog circuit design in the Audio Arts Department of Webster University.

Martin Freeman is the designer of the ‘Horndog’ circuit recent featured in Electronic Musician Magazine. He is a master in the uses of chaotic feedback in circuit design.
Bbob Drake is a renowned DIY master. His website, fluxmonkey.com, is one of the principle DIY analog references on the internet for people of all levels of expertise.
