Open call for participants!
OPEN SOURCE FESTIVALS – DO IT ANYWAY (Sheffield, Uk)
16-05-2015 12:00 16:00
Workshop by Jon Nordby (Norway) where we will use visual programming in Flowhub to create custom sensors, interactions and sound experiences.
As a basis we have microcontrollers (Arduino) wired with sensors, both off-the-shelf and custom-built.
These we will connect to our laptops and/or embedded Linux machines (Raspberry Pi) and use
SuperCollider to create sound from these.
Depending on the interest and feedback, we may go on to develop an installation or performance
to be completed during the festival.
To participate send an email to: piksel15[at]piksel.no
Participants should bring:
* Laptop (Linux/OSX/Windows)
