In this workshop you’ll go on sonic adventures exploring a tool that’s basically a tiny keyboard – the makey makey. Alligator clips help you turn anything conductive into a controller. DIY your own lemon xylophone or invent a brand new soundtoy.
We will build all kinds of gizmos together.
You’ll also learn how to trigger sounds using a block based programming language called Scratch. No problem if you’ve never coded before, it’s like playing lego.
So bring you favorite fruit or anything conductive, your laptop (with usb connection) and some headphones. If you can preinstall the software at home, so we can get started with music straight away (https://scratch.mit.edu/download)
You can buy a makey makey for a reduced price at Common Ground. We’ll also have some available to use in case you just want to jam.
Note: Please let us know if you can’t make it max. 24 hours before the workshop, otherwise, we can’t reimburse you.
