Raspberry Pi, Pd-L2Ork and Quantified Self FULL

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

The workshop will provide an introduction in the use of the affordable, off-the-shelf hardware (Raspberry Pi), and free and open-source software (Pd-L2Ork) to design real-time musical devices, instruments, and effects processors and link them to various sensors and actuators.

Of notable interest will be quantified self (a.k.a. consciousness hacking http://ico.bukvic.net/main/quantified-self) scenarios that are increasingly used to monitor our own performance and well being, including using dynamically generated music to foster mindfulness. No prior experience with either hardware or software programming is required.

This session will take place in a site-specific hexaphonic audio environment designed and installed by engineers from Virginia Tech ICAT. 


** If you successfully register for this workshop, it will be confirmed in your personalized schedule. Please plan to arrive at the venue at least 15 minutes prior to the beginning of the session. Those not in attendance 5 minutes before the session begins will forfeit their spot to those in line. 
** If you were unable to successfully register for this workshop but were added to the waitlist and want to attend, it may still be possible if a space becomes available on the day of the session. Please plan to arrive at the venue at least 15 minutes prior to the beginning of the session and wait in the standby line. Open spots will be filled on a first come, first serve basis to those in line.

Spatial Sound

The spatial location of sound is as important as pitch and rhythm. Experiments with "Spatial Music" have informed composition since the early nineteen-hundreds. But today, 21st century technologies for audio recording, production, and playback have revived an interest in surround sound and the three-dimensional potential of electronic music.

Hacking Systems

The resurgence of a technological Maker Culture is undeniable, and Moogfest is a gathering for all those enthused by new tools for creative expression. Conversations, workshops, and installations will not only explore hardware and physical computing, but also reflect on how the last decade has been transformed by a host of arts-engineering software toolkits like Processing, Arduino, and openFrameworks.
