Synth Saturday December 16 2017, noon-6:00 PM!

Ocean State Maker Mill is hosting our December synthesizer meetup from noon until 6:00 PM on Saturday December 16 in Pawtucket, RI. Whether you’re an experienced electronic musician, or are just curious about what this whole ‘modular synthesis/Eurorack’ thing is about, this is the perfect chance to gather with fellow New England synth nerds. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own synths, modules and racks. Headphones are encouraged, but we’ll also have a PA system available for a wider audio experience. Anyone is welcome to perform — if you want to volunteer ahead of time, we’ll help publicize your performance!

Ocean State Maker Mill is a membership-run organization with the mission of helping encourage the usage of arts, engineering, and science to help make ideas become reality. We provide a workshop for our members to build their dreams, and an educational space for the greater New England community to learn new skills. We are located at 80 Fountain Street in Pawtucket, RI.

PRONK Was OSMM

On Monday, October 9th, the quiet rhythms of Fox Point were transformed into a wild, raucous outpouring of marching band activism as twenty brass and marching bands flooded the area for the Providence Honk Festival – or Pronk, as it’s commonly known.

OSMM was there in the evening showcasing our latest project, seven foot high programmable letters spelling out P R O N K in synchronized colors and pattern controlled by crowd tweets and a vibe of shared community and music.

Built over a single weekend of non-stop making, the construction of each of the five letters brought together all the skills that OSMM is known for – CNC, carpentry, electronics, programing – in a synergy of making and camaraderie that’s impossible to describe and can only be experienced.
