Dave Cranmer talks about nervoussquirrel.com and how to get paid to make things
A talk from EMF 2022 by Dave Cranmer
On Friday June 3, 2022 at – in Stage B
Delighted to announce that the Ore-Some Xylophone will be making its UK debut at EMF 2022!
Come and see the electromechanical xylophone that generates truly random compositions by measuring the radioactivity of a lump of uranium ore. You can turn the handwheel to move the lead shield and adjust the speed of the music.
I like making things, often mechanical or electronic. My sculptures frequently have audio elements, and involve owls whenever possible.
My website has a lot of descriptions of how projects were built, but I'm planning a talk that gives a little more detail about the business side of making things full time for a living. The talk is aimed at myself, 20 years ago.
I hope you're listening, younger me...
