Anjeline de Dios - The Phillippines

Anjeline de Dios


Hello. I’m Anjeline from Manila, Philippines. Trained as a cultural geographer, I create and study emergent spaces of sound, community, and change through my work of research, performance, and teaching. I previously worked in academia as a university professor of cultural studies, and in systems-led innovation as a strategic researcher. Currently, I am an independent researcher, performing artist, meditation and systems-change facilitator, and consulting divination practitioner.

My work draws from different wellsprings. From my family and home culture I developed a lifelong fascination with singing as an activity that allows you to be immersed within yourself yet totally with others. As a humanities scholar who started out in philosophy and wandered into cultural geography and inter-Asian cultural studies, I am devoted to understanding the self in relation to the other, especially through systemic and lived aspects of spatial experience. The projects I sustain with collaborators in arts and wellness communities feed my purpose of creating curious, welcoming musical spaces. Finally, my contemplative practice strengthens my personal aspiration to help people listen better to the life within and beyond themselves.

Kenali Kota - "THE (UN)FAMOUS FIVE" Documenting people's memories

KenaliKota started its journey in 2019 in Yogyakarta by a group of new friends who had the same interest in exploring the city. Since the founders also share the same background as the newcomers, initially the sightseeing activities were intended to familiarize themselves with the city while documenting their journey.

KenaliKota focuses its activities in capturing the city experience from local perspective by treasuring every interaction during the trip -with the people and places. During its journey, the exploration also covers another city as well.

We are setting off from a contemporary art ecosystem developed from a not-for-profit work model. A large part of our operational support comes from our constitutive collective, which in turn were given by donor institution, sponsors and independent funding from our business unit, apart from the funds given from our member out of their own volition. When we decided to work together as an ecosystem, we tried to set a system of co-storehouse where every resource we have is collected and shared in proportion to every collective need. The various resources from every collective comes in many forms: money, program, equipment or even books. We pooled those assets for easier access and sharing for every member of the collective.

What can we solder?

Our friends from CircuitCircle in Dresden donated various sets of synthesizer / noise generator DIY kits to solder to us!!! Terimah Kasih! “CIRCUIT-CONTROL“ is their festival for the creative use of the solder iron, and the had many many kits to share with our global community. There are 3 different kits available:

Touch synth / distortion (also known as the "Dangdut from Hell") - the most easy one for beginners.

Screamo - a device to distort some boring music and add some synthsouds to it!! It can be used as standalone of FX-Unit and works with a 40106 and an LM386... combined in a feedback circle...SCREAM!!

LDeRRoR - a device to generate some funky squarewaves... it's unsing all 6 hex inverters of a 40106 IC... they are controlled by LDR's and your body.... 3 oscillators are routed to one output to create some stereo FX....

KaosGlam - ᗷᑌIᒪᗪ YOᑌᖇ Oᗯᑎ ᕼᗩᖇᗪGᒪᗩᗰ ᑫᑌEEᖇ EᒪEᑕTᖇOᑎIᑕ TOᑌᑕᕼ ᔕYᑎTᕼETIᘔEᖇ

Additionally we have the KaosGlam, designed by Paula Pin, donated to us by pin herself and the Center for Alternative Coconut Research.

All these DIY kits are suitable for beginners and you will leave with a nice little noisy toy afer a few hours of soldering, guided by the local solder geeks.

ROŠA-on-Tour - Indonesia

Famous Tour to the East

Lokakarya Bonexsluch di Institut Seni Tambak Bayan, Surabaya diinisiasi oleh Waft Lab X Bonbontronix.

Poster Lokakarya Bonexsluch didesain oleh HellHard

Minggu 11 Desember 2022 Bayangkan bagaimana Anda dapat mendengar bunyi aliran listrik yang mengalir jauh melalui kabel-kabel menuju rumah Anda, melalui mesin-mesin, kendaraan atau gawai-gawai Anda yang berjarak sepanjang jari dan layar? Berawal dari pengembangan instrumen serupa selama ROŠA 2022 berlangsung, Bonexsluch merupakan perpanjangan dari Indosluch. Indosluch adalah sebuah prototip rangkaian elektronik yang dapat mengubah tangkapan sinyal elektromagnetik menjadi bunyi yang dikembangkan oleh Marc Dusseiller. Marc sendiri berangkat dari keingintahuan bagaimana mengembangkan instrumen yang telah ada namun menggunakan komponen yang dapat diakses secara murah dan lokal. Dengan kata lain, Indosluch, termasuk Bonexsluch yang menjadi perpanjangannya yang bersifat lokal, adalah sebuah instrumen untuk membunyikan aliran elektromagnetik.

Dokumentasi Lokakarya Bonexsluch

The Neo Bonexsluch

Secara prinsip Bonexsluch tidak jauh berbeda dengan pengembangan Indosluch yang masih terbuka dengan pengembangan lebih lanjut. Alih-alih mengoptimalkan penggunaan koil yang menjadi semacam sensor atau antena penerima sinyal elektromagnetik, pengembangan Bonexsluch bertumpu pada efisiensi hubungan antara perolehan besar amplifikasi dan nilai resistor kunci. Bonexsluch dapat mencapai besaran amplifikasi yang cukup praktis sekaligus kesederhanaan desain. Di samping upaya untuk mengembangkannya sebagai instrumen penerima atau penangkap sinyal elektromagnetik, Bonexsluch memperpanjang prototip ini layaknya instrumen bunyi melalui penjaluran, jika tidak penganggu sinyal tersebut, barangkali instrumentalisasi sinyal itu sendiri. Bonexsluch memiliki fitur saluran bunyi yang tersusun paralel dengan kumparan dan utamanya menggunakan tenaga penguat sinyal yang sudah terkandung di dalamnya yang merespon kapasitansi tubuh dan tekanan pada permukaan konektor menuju sirkuit. Bonexsluch sebelumnya telah diujicobakan sekaligus dipraktikkan melalui sebuah lokakarya yang mengiringi pengembangan terakhirnya.

Siapapun yang tertarik dapat mengikuti ini, tidak memerlukan pengetahuan dalam dunia elektroni maupun desain sirkuit.

Tangal: Thursday, 26. September, starting at 15.00. Duration 2-3 hours and open end jam & nongkrong. Snacks will be provided, feel free to bring something too!

Jam: 5 Sore - Selesai

Lokasi: Ruang MES56, Jl. Mangkuyudan No.53 A, Mantrijeron, Kota Yogyakarta, 55143

As a creative design / drawing workshop we want to explore how creativity can be use to make unique designs of fuctional electronic circuits. We also will discuss what means Open Hardware and why sharing detailed instructions can lead to a diversity of personal designs and improving the accessibility for DIY electronics workshops.

The example circuit is based on the LM386, simple 1W amplifier circiut and it can be used to make your own design of a touch noise synthesizer!! The device can act as a distortion amp for your input sound (such as ɖǟռɢɖʊȶ), which you can then f*.%-up and create noise and drone sounds from ⱧɆⱠⱠ. And it has a pink LED on it!

Gentle But Make Noise ‘Drinking Woodo's Sky’ (Yogyakarta version)

Perancang: Khvay Loueng (the master, Cambodia)–Arnont Nongyao (Thailand)

Gentle But Make Noise dikembangkan oleh Arnont Nongyao, seorang seniman eksperimental berasal dari Chiangmai, Thailand. Sulit untuk menundukkan instrumen ini dalam satu definisi. Ia mewakili, tentu saja sebuah instrumen bunyi, namun juga melingkupi sebuah rancangan desain nan vernakular, tidak begitu teknis, dan hampir dapat dibuat oleh siapa saja. Tentu saja penggunaan rangkaian reverse avalanche bukanlah sesuatu yang baru, namun Gentle But Make Noise, memberikan jalan bagi penciptaan alat bunyi yang cerdik, luwes, liar dan mudah, sekalipun bagi para pemula dalam elektronik. Ia memiliki keleluasaan bermain-main, kualitas kriya nan mumpuni, kemungkinannya untuk menciptakan mesin sederhana sekaligus bunyi yang tidak akan sama satu dengan yang lainnya.

Lokakarya GBMN pada ajang ROSA 2022, mendorong para partisipan setidaknya dalam ilustrasi, kemampuan membangun instrumen yang mencakup usaha untuk membengkokkan sirkuit elektronik dalam makna yang instalatif dan skulptural.

Original Application

See the original application here. During the planning phase April / May 2022, various things are due to change, developed and improved. Stay tuned...

Hackteria methodologies

Throughout the years the focus has shifted to more human interaction and physical formats of learning environments to share and experiment with DIY practices to allow anybody outside established research institutions to perform their own experiments in lifescience, environmental monitoring and artistic approaches involving biological mediums. We have always embraced a methodology of “radical transdisciplinarity” with the belief that the challenges of our times can only be tackled when all players of society globally are involved; crossing different cultural backgrounds, socio-economics situations and a large diversity of practices from art, hacking and engineering to cooking, anthropoloy and experimental electronic music.

See various articles that have been written about hackteria: Press Coverage

HackteriaLabs 2010-20xx

Hackteria has established a methodology of “temporary labs for collaborative production and transdisciplinary research”, which has been done several times over the last decade. Under the name “HackteriaLab” (Main_Page#HackteriaLabs) we have done such events in Switzerland 2010, 2011 & 2017, Bangalore 2013, Okinawa 2020 and also in Yogyakarta 2014, Indonesia. Especially the latter has been extremely fruitful in establishing long term collaborations, friendships and new projects that extended years beyond the events itself.

See the trailer and documentary film of HackteriaLab 2014 - Yogyakarta here: HLab14-Documentary

What is the event about, and what do you want to achieve with it?

Hackteria has been focussing in the process of long term collaboration by initiating many regional activities especially Indonesia. The connection between Hackteria with Indonesia has started since 2009, from small scale activities such as workshops, talks, lectures, labs, residencies and even a festival - scale event called HackteriaLab 2014 - Yogyakarta. This strong relationship is a fruit of a consistency in reaching out, developing ideas, making things, experimenting and/or even hanging out to talk about cultural differences.

In short:

“A regional event series combining a longer on-site residency, multi-geographical work connection local outreach tour, as-well as a research & production lab and a gathering of interesting players from the region of South East Asia.”


We will be happy to host and finance one person for a longer durational residency to work in the local context of Yogyakarta, aswell as exploring other regions of Indonesia together. The focus of the applicatants should cover the main topics of “rural open science hardware” in the newly eyplored regional context. The residency will be choosen through a call, by the organising team, and selected according the GOSH values and experiences to create valuable research.

(The second residency is Marc Dusseiller, mostly in the role of co-ordination and organzing the event series. His travel costs are covered privately.)

ROŠA workshop and outreach tour:

The local team and residence researchers will be invited for a tour through Java and Makkassar, Sulawesi to visit selected communities and learn and share experiences in open science hardware in the local context through workshops, expeditions and talks.

ROŠA temporary lab:

For 10 days we’ll inhabint a public venue in Yogyakarta to set up a temporary lab for developing and experimenting with our hardware projects, host local visitors and public events, promoting the collaborative and open source spirit of our activities. A small group of participants will be invitied to the ROŠA temporary lab. we are aiming at a focused group of 10-15 active participants, if travel restrictions are allowing it, 50% from South East Asia and the others from different local communities. More international guests are welcomed (2-3 persons), but will need to support their own travel and covid-19 related quarantine costs.

ROŠA gathering:

During a 3 days gathering we will share our practices to a wider audience of local researchers, students, activists and creatives. Various methodologies will be implemented, such as site-visits, working groups, skill-share sessions and talks.

Embedded ethnographic research:

We have collaborators locally who have an interest to study our transdisciplinary laboratory as an ethnographic - cultural anthropological field or how to establish quality observation and understanding of collective and interdisciplinary work in innovation laboratories. In short, how to observe, participate, learn and innovate collective work methods and how to use different methods of thinking (scientific, artistic, economic, everyday) and how to build (different examples from the world) bridges between science, art and industry.

UROŠ - Ubiquitous Rural Open Science Hardware

In 2021 Hackteria has initiated a project “UROŠ - Ubiquitous Rural Open Science Hardware” with support from Slovenia and the European Union, with the goal to research the more “real world” application of various open science hardware projects in a rural setting and agricultural applications. The projects involved remote researchers in Argentina and Yogyakarta, aswell as a 3 weeks temporary autonomous lab (can also be described as a group residency / hackathon) in Maribor, Slovenia. We hope to continue and culminate this event series with a larger regional gathering in Yogyakarta and the support of the GOSH funding round 1.
