Hack Musical Instruments

Learn to combine analog and digital approaches by hacking existing musical instruments to create new sonic interactions!

Haig Armen is back to TUMO to teach you the ways to integrate old and new crafting methods. You will mash up an instrument with a small embedded electronic toolkit consisting of a RaspberryPi with Potentiometers and an open source software stack. You will be able to maximize for musical expressivity, interactivity and experimentation. By using accessible prototyping tools you will be able to experiment and create new interactions rapidly which will conclude with a musical performance. Bring your ukulele, hand-drum, toy piano or xylophone and you will hack it into a new digital sound instrument.

Prerequisite: Programming II
The learning lab will take place at TUMO Stepanakert, from April 22 to May 3, Monday to Friday, 3:30 – 7:30 PM.
