Sonic Interactions Workshop Preparation

Categories Uncategorized

For centuries we have carefully handcraft the interactions of musical instruments, optimizing them for intuitive learning, playability and comfort yet many of the newest tools of musical expression are cold, intangible and use technologies in ways that ignore hundreds of years of accumulated knowledge. Sonic Interactions is a hands-on workshop in combining concept, craft and composition. This workshop aims to expand our creative repertoire by introducing basic electronics and coding in the context of musical instruments to explore a variety of tangible ways for us to interact with sound to create music. Using design sprints and accessible prototyping tools like Raspberry Pi and sensors, we aim to combine emergent technologies with existing instruments to create new instruments optimized for musical expression and interactivity.
