Paral·lel Plus+ is our offer of professional workshops and creative sessions related to electronic music taking place during the festival. In parallel to the performances we will invite professionals to talk about their projects at the festival premises.


Our aim is to support collaboration and networking between professionals within the sector, as well as to promote new devices and equipment to people interested in producing electronic music.

CYMATICS | Workshop by Puntalaberinto, Diego de León and Xavi Manzanares dAAX.


Cymatics is the representation of sound and vibration in visual form. The generic term for this field of science is the study of modal phenomena, renamed cymatics by Hans Jenny (1904-1972).

One of the first people to record that an oscillating body displayed regular patterns was Galileo Galilei in 1632. 


In this workshop we will explore vibrational modal phenomena through various experiments with transducers, loudspeakers, different materials and modular synthesizers.


We will build artefacts based on the plates of Ernst Florenz Friedrich Chladni (1756 - 1956) founder of acoustics, where the surface of a plate, diaphragm or membrane is vibrated and regions of maximum and minimum displacement appear in a thin covering of particles, paste or liquid. Different patterns appear in the medium depending on the geometry of the plate and the frequency of the vibration.

We will visualise the patterns in liquids, metal, non-Newtonian fluids and we will be able to feel these waves on our bodies.

Through experimentation we can observe the effects of sound and consequently of vibration waves in different physical media.

Electronic creation from nature sounds | Workshop by Microfusa


Using samples obtained in the forest in real time, we will work on different sound manipulation strategies to convert the different textures captured into the base sounds of an electronic musical theme. 


This workshop has two distinct parts, first we will go into nature where we will capture the sounds and then using the re-synthesis capacity of current software we will use these samples to develop a musical idea.



Language: Spanish / Català / English

Collection of sound samples: 1 hour / Workshop: 1,5 hours

Total duration: 2,5 hours
