Sign up is open for my Arduino Music and Sound Weekend Workshop:
"During this hands-on workshop we will survey Arduino platforms,
libraries, shields and programming techniques for a broad range of
musical and sound applications. We will learn how to synthesize useful
wave shapes including square, sine, triangle and pulses, how to manage
polyphony and timing and how to playback and record sampled sounds.
We will write software to move gestural data from sensors to synthesis
software and hardware via MIDI and Open Sound Control.
We will look at effective techniques for building musical gesture
sensors including piezoelectric disk triggering, piezoresistive
etextiles for pressure and touch sensing and build examples of
capacitive proximity sensing for Theremin-like interfaces.
We will review my extensive collection of augmented instruments and new
controllers with an eye to what techniques you can adapt to your own
