Physical Computing, Sound Art and Kinetic Sculpture

14 Mar - 15 Mar 2015

Date: Sat 14 Mar - Sun 15 Mar 2015
Time: 12 – 4pm
Price: £120 general admission, £90 concession


A workshop by Jeremy Keenan for artists who are interested in making kinetic sound sculptures using computer controlled sound and electronics.

About the workshop:
With a focus on generating sound using motion, data, and light, this workshop will outline the creative and technical possibilities afforded by the popular physical computing platform, Arduino.
With guidance from the tutor, the aim will be for all participants to make a small sound making device which reacts to data, environmental conditions, or manual control.

This workshop will be suitable for a complete beginner, but also of potential interest to those with some experience.
The first day will be dedicated to demonstration a variety of approaches, with individual tutorials devoted to practical outcomes on the second day.

What you will need:
Please bring a laptop computer. Arduino software is free and runs on Mac, Windows and Linux.

Arduino starter kits are available to purchase here or you can bring your own project in for discussion with the tutor.
