Two-day in situ DIY wires workshop

Over the weekend Alan Lamb and David Burraston taught 20 artists from around Australia various techniques of making a musical instrument out of fencing wire. David Burraston demonstrated and taught how to build and attach ‘piezo’ microphone pickups to wires.
August 16th 2008 WIRED Concert
Our first public concert was held at the Cootamundra Creative Arts and Cultural Centre, and a provided a chance for our local community and visiting guests to see and hear what this wired stuff was all about. Sarah Last gave a presentation to the community about The WIRED Lab’s activities. Lamb, Burraston and Bradbury then gave performances. During the evening a special demonstration/performance was given by world renowned harmonic singer Dean Frenkel, who holds the Guinness world record for the longest sustained note (the record was set on the ABCTV Denton show in 2007).
