Macumbista Benjolins

During spring 2017 I interned with Derek Holzer. I built and developed Holzerā€™s Macumbista analog synthesizers and received guidance for my own projects related to sound electronics.

I got the introduction to the basics of sound electronics and experimental electronic music. I etched, milled and drilled PCBs, soldered, read and wrote schematics and eventually designed my own circuits with Eagle. I got guidance for my personal projects and gained the necessary skills to create electronic instruments for my own workshops, performances and installations.

Here’s a few shots along the way:
