For the 5th workshop in the DIY electronics series we team up with the Rewire festival to bring you workshop on the most popular and successful micro controller of all times, the famous Arduino. Participants will be introduced to this platform and ways of interfacing it with various sensors in order to generate, control and manipulate digital sound. We will use open source hardware and software (Arduino / Pure Data) to create a simple sound control patch using buttons, switches, potentiometers and sensors. At the end of the workshop we will present the results as a short performance.

Some basic knowledge of electronics, programming and digital sound synthesis is an advantage but not a necessity as we will start from the very basics. All participants are required to bring a laptop with installed Arduino IDE and PureData, both of which are available for Windows, Mac and Linux computers and are free.

Below is a video showing an example of what you can do with Arduino and Pure Data if you work hard for a long time;-)
