Monday Morning


Class Overview: Why we’re here and schedule overview

Opening Sketching exercise - Take 15 minutes and draw the following:

 1. Your favorite musical instrument 
 2. Something you think you could make this week
 3. Something you could create if money, time, knowledge and physics were not considerations

Context / history / examples Signal flow and toolchain

Electronics overview

Monday Afternoon Background and Intro To Arduino

Arduino Hands on Lecture

Goal: send data, receive data

Challenge: Make an interesting instrument with one button

Tuesday Morning One-button show and tell Gestures - discrete vs. continuous

Continuous sensing in Arduino -- A/D and sending Serial

Scaling data in Max and/or in arduino

Go through sensors: FSR Bend Photocell Pot Softpot Hall Effect

Tuesday Afternoon Solder your accelerometer and proximity

Sensors: Proximity Accelerometer

Split off Max pro users from beginners

Goal: Create a musical interaction. using 1 continuous and 1 discrete sensor.   Think about how the physical gestures that you are using and the type of sensor (continuous or discrete) interact with the sounds you are controlling.

Homework: Come up with 2 ideas for your performance.  Sketch them out.  Include details such as materials, sounds, sensors, gestures.

Wednesday Morning Present your ideas

Serial data transitioning into MIDI

Making Connectors

Wednesday Afternoon

Advanced/ other sensing Encoders, Capacitive Piezo/microphone

Pair up and help each other narrow down your ideas for final projects.

Thursday Morning
