An invitation to 6 days of collaborative workshops, open meetings and discussions with soldering irons, advancing the work fields of the open source Π-node project : build microFM zones, construct radio broadcasts, make multi stream relays and mixes, do frequency captivation and radio data transmission.

Participants will learn how to build small range analog FM receiver/transmitter, create a small digital FM transmitter, listen and capture various frequencies from 20 MHz to 2.4 GHz, transmit data through radio frequencies (airchat, minimodem, ...), design, build and calibrate FM antennas, create radiophonic relays through water, laser, airwaves, potatos .., use or transform radios into musical instruments, document the different processes, in the open source philosophy.

Participants are welcome /with or without/ any experience in programming, electronics, soldering and/or radio transmission.

The Radio Scanner Orchestra is a multichannel sound performance using various radio scanners as instruments, where several scanning techniques are combined to create a multidimensional exploration of the local radio frequency spectrum of the city of Graz. The technical limitations of each device and the difference of width of the scanned band creates a prelminiary score.
