Kids, it’s electric toy day in HELLERAU! Alwin Weber is a virtuoso artist at the soldering iron. For 12 years he has been giving various workshops on D.I.Y. electronics or CircuitBending and modifying electronic toys and instruments. What comes out of these “NoiseToys” are at the very beginning rather “happy little accidents” in the sense of Bob Ross, but noise becomes music, music becomes performance. In his solo project, Alwin Weber opens his toy box and assembles abstract sound collages from modified toys, synthesizers and field recordings in front of everyone’s ears. Improvised and thus a real one-off. Well then – let’s play!
