San Franciscos ROBOTSPEAK Announces Special Goal For Modular Synth Building Workshops

San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) June 15, 2012

ROBOTSPEAK, the premier San Francisco music production school for electronic music, is beginning build sessions that concentrate on the construction of a historically accurate modular synthesizer from the early 1970s. This month’s module is the classic 1973 Serge Multimode Filter, a powerful and very flexible synthesizer module originally created by Serge Alexandrovich Tcherepnin during the 1970s.

As the summer progresses, we’ll be focusing on these elegant and unique Serge designs, both from the standpoint of circuitry and user interface, Steve Taormina of ROBOTSPEAK said. Upcoming builds will focus on several other unique Serge modules that together comprise a compact modular system. By fall 2012, we anticipate having several of these ‘replica’ CGS Serge Modular Systems nearing completion and being used in our modular analog synthesis theory classes that occur every few months.

The 1973 Serge Multimode Filter, which is the focus during June, has a very bright, somewhat acoustic sound quality. It features a range switch that kicks it into subharmonic mode for filtering low-frequency oscillations (LFOs), controlling voltages, etc.

Although the circuit can be built into most modular formats or a stand-alone box, the music production school has chosen to honor its heritage with a limited run of Serge-style face panels done with 1973-inspired panel graphics and banana-jack patching.

ROBOTSPEAK’s modular synth build sessions are conducted with a guest lecturer and utilize open class formats that encourage participants to work socially and co-operatively.

Joining a ROBOTSPEAK modular build session will not only provide you with a useful self-built tool to enhance your music making but will also allow you to become aware of the experience of creative and enjoyable problem-solving completed within a team, Taormina said. Each session will be overseen and advised by a different synth designer/builder, who will offer their expertise and time to bring back the communal modular synth building mind set from the past.

The workshops cost around $ 175 per session and the PCB and most of the supplies are included to build one module. Depending on what the workshop is building, the cost of materials and details may change. Be sure to check the blog for current information at

We will build one every month, Taormina said. This is more than a product-based workshop. We want to build a monthly group where we can hang out and solder, and learn and share do it yourself (SDIY). Whatever system you have, we can help get your module regulated and paneled up. If you want to start a system, we can help get a case and power supply unit (psu) sorted.

Participants will be able to take their module home.

For the most current information about the workshops, visit ROBOTSPEAKs Facebook page.

To reserve a spot or for more information about any of ROBOTSPEAKs products or services, call 415-230-0840, or view the music production specialist on the Web at or on Facebook. ROBOTSPEAK is located at 589 1/2 Haight St. in San Francisco and is open on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays from noon to 6 p.m., and Fridays from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. ROBOTSPEAK is also available by appointment.


ROBOTSPEAK is a school located in San Francisco that specializes in teaching basic to advance electronic music and DJ classes, such as handling different DJ equipment to learning music production. Its classes are designed to empower the home and project-studio musician with real-world skills, enabling them to make better music now with gear and musical instruments they actually own.

Innovative Design and Building Services Off-Site Construction Methods Capitalize on Speed and Cost Efficiencies for Sturgis Charter School project In Hyannis, Mass.

(PRWEB) October 01, 2012

Interior and exterior finishing work is being completed on Sturgis Charter Schools new West Campus building. The 45,000 square foot building was constructed off-site at Innovative Design and Building Services (IDBS) Liverpool, Pa., facility and transported to the building site in Hyannis, Mass. A hybrid of on-site and off-site construction methods were employed allowing for tall ceiling heights and capitalizing on off-site efficiencies. Utilizing off-site techniques for the majority of the project, along with IDBS proprietary systems and processes, also aided in controlling the overall project costs.

The completion of the two-story structure, which includes numerous classrooms, a faculty lounge, labs, a library, office spaces, and an amphitheater-like seating space, doubles the schools capacity of 400 to over 800 students. Opening in the fall of 2012, the school will continue to offer an International Baccalaureate diploma which focuses on teaching students to be caring, reflective and open-minded.

Planning for the west campus began in November of 2009, but progress stalled. The momentum picked up when IDBS modular construction method was introduced as a solution. Off-site construction means less time, less overhead and less waste, which gave Sturgis Charter Schools reduced and fixed construction costs needed to complete the project.

The initial design was reviewed and adjusted to maximize the efficiencies of off-site construction. Innovative solutions were utilized to achieve larger, open rooms with high ceilings. All 96 building sections, constructed to meet the wind loads and hurricane requirements needed for the seaside school, were delivered and erected by IDBS crew in just 3 weeks. Onsite crews followed behind with HVAC, sprinklers, and completing the interior and exterior finishes.

Minimize site disruption with off-site construction

Off-site construction is well suited for classrooms and educational buildings. Schools can be designed and constructed to meet most architectural and customer specifications. By utilizing off-site methods, the disruption at the building site is limited, resulting in cleaner, safer environments for teachers and students. In most case, on-site work can be performed during summer sessions, further reducing the impact on the existing campus.

The IDBS construction process utilizes a myriad of off-site construction techniques. This unique system provides the advantages of quality-based, climate-controlled construction methods that can be customized to suit a wide variety of regional styles. The proprietary process is ideal for projects such as apartments, hotels, senior living residences, student dorms, town homes, multi-family and educational structures.

IDBS ability to provide accurate quotes and guaranteed pricing is supported by their 1,000+ strategic supply chain partners. Without problems like weather delays, and with very predictable material and labor costs, lenders and investors can have high confidence in minimal or zero cost overruns. Our customers value the fact that our pricing, which can represent up to 80-90 percent of an erected structures cost, is fixed and guaranteed, giving them the confidence that their construction budgets will be held intact, stated Steven Saffell Executive Director-Northeast.

IDBS was formed by bringing together the most experienced team of off-site building specialists from Excel Homes Group, All American Building Systems and Mod-U-Kraf Homes. These specialists have more than 300 combined years of off-site construction experience in all aspects of design, cost estimating and project management. With five facilities located in Indiana, Iowa, Colorado, Pennsylvania, and Virginia, IDBS has developed a national reach making it the market leader in off-site commercial and multi-family building solutions in North America.

Fluxcity: Prefabricated/Modular Building System

New York, NY (PRWEB) September 15, 2012

New York, NY. George Maciunas/Fluxus Foundation is pleased to present Fluxcity: Prefabricated/Modular Building System in the foundation gallery space at 454 West 19th St. Engaging Maciunas statement efficiency is giving the most performance for the least cost, the exhibition critically explores Fluxhouse/Fluxcity as a solution to achieve social welfare by raising the Quality/Standard of Living for communities across the economic spectrum.

George Maciunas invented the 1900-sq-ft prefabricated mass building system known as Fluxhouse as a cost-efficient, sustainable, and multifunctional solution for social housing. Fluxhouse is a modular unit based on a minimum number of components which can be customized to residential, institutional, industrial, and agricultural functions, and multiplied to construct buildings of any size. Intended for factory production, Fluxhouse has simple tooling requirements and is readily adaptable to existing automation systems. This eco-friendly design is resistant to natural disasters including fires, floods, earthquakes, and hurricanes as well as deterioration caused by rot, termites, corrosion, and discoloration.

Maciunas was awarded architectural degrees from Cooper Union (1952) and Pittsburghs Carnegie Institute of Technology (1954). After graduation, he worked for several major firms, including Skidmore, Owing and Merrill (1955-57), the highly regarded designers Knoll Associates (1960-61) (interior design, interior graphics, exhibits, displays, structures), and Olin Mathieson (1957-1960) (R&D Aluminum div product development and design) where he is credited with the invention of a structural framework useful in construction of prefabricated buildings using extruded aluminum beams and columns. Furthermore, Maciunas received a patent for the innovative modular building system in 1961. The Fluxhouse design was completed and copyrighted in 1965 as an invention which can be used to build a single family house, a highrise building, or an entire city (Fluxcity).

Intended as an improved design to Soviet Block Housing and Levittowns, Fluxhouse is a flexible building system which reduces costs through an innovative manufacturing process of prefabrication rather than a reduction of living space. Fluxcity marries Maciunas collectivist sensibility with his interest in learning models as an solution to amend economic inequality through adaptive urban design.

As the world faces its greatest economic challenges due to poor property speculation and expanding populations, Fluxcity holds great promise as part of a national program like Roosevelts New Deal to amend shantytowns and sprawl, aid unemployment, and provide relief to lower and middle class communities. On a global scale, Fluxcity has immediate potential to repair slums, which is regarded as the worlds fastest growing urban habitat as the number of residents have risen from 777 million to 830 million in 2010.

In demonstrating an organic process of need-based growth, Fluxcitys evolutionary design principles will be examined in relation to Maciunas theories on knowledge processing in the web exhibit. The foundation will present images by German-born photographer Christoph Gielen, whose aerial photographs of isolated suburban settlements and rapid urban developments raise critical awareness on the hidden geometries of the built environment. Topics of commercialism, starchitecture, nomadism, and collective intelligence will be explored in the scholarly works of writer Stewart Brand, mathematician Nikos Salingaros, Dr. Michael Haerdter, professor Rosi Braidotti, and Jessica Rhee, among others.

The exhibition will open September 13th – November 30th, 2012 .
