How do you ensure a new generation of noise kids? Sit them down workshop style, and teach them how to create simple instruments out of pencils. Today was supposed to be a rest day, but Aoki Chan suggested we go to this, and we're really glad we did.
I did not expect to see a large group of young kids sitting around, super interested to learn about circuitry, soldering instruments together. We left after four hours, and they were still smiling, eager to learn. Oo Uncletwis, Helmi Hardian, and many others have a collective called Waft - Lab, doing this across Indonesia and Thailand. Inspiring. Time for bed. Tomorrow : 15 bands in one day.
