In the decade since Handmade Electronic Music began to worm its way around the globe, clusters of handmade audio enthusiasts and collectively organized projects have formed in a broad geographical swath of sound art and electronic music scenes. Some were directly inspired by Collins’s approach to hardware hacking, taking up new experiments enabled by the proliferation of handmade audio schematics online; others assembled projects from scrap electronics and readily available components, inspired by hands-on learning from like-minded creative souls. Home electronics have a long history in “do-it-yourself” hobbyist practice, through which individuals take control of the invention and construction of technologies, creating alternatives to corporate production and the creative limits of consumer design. In many handmade electronic audio communities, the teaching/learning workshop plays a central role. Hacking workshops use sound technologies to generate new social relationships and new ways of thinking creatively in everyday contexts.
