>Halldór and ®‚ráinn (say "Phrainn"), artists and members of Lorna
>organization (Reykjavik, Iceland) are musicians who create their own
>acoustic instruments with the use of digital crafting tools (laser
>cutter, CNC, 3d printers ...). They are also investigating together the
>filtering effects of variously shaped cavities on sound, using a modular
>acoustic formant system they have developed.
>For this workshop, they will test various cavities as to turn them into
>sound filter digital effects, with use of the software Vowel (developed
>by Paul Falstad to digitally model the human vocal tract as an acoustic
>filter). <http://www.falstad.com/vowel/>http://www.falstad.com/vowel/
