Creative audio programming on Raspberry Pi Workshop
- When 5 Dec - 5 Dec 2016
500 Harris St, Ultimo NSW 2007
Media artist and Senior Lecturer at UNSW Art & Design Dr Ollie Bown, is hosting a creative audio programming workshop at Sydney's dynamic Museum of Applied Arts & Sciences (MAAS).
Workshop participants will learn about the Raspberry Pi, an affordable computer that can run realtime audio programs, responding to sensors and speaking over a WiFi network to other devices. What does that mean? It means portable devices everywhere making synchronised music together!
Through a collaboration between UNSW and UTS, MAAS is developing a creative coding toolkit for artists, designers and musicians, enabling them to easily write and deploy programs to their Raspberry Pis, speeding up development and leaving more time for creative exploration. The museum software networks directly to the Pis. You can write code sketches like you do in Processing or Arduino, but deploy your code immediately to your fleet of Pis while they are still running. You can even send multiple programs at the same time.
Museum of Applied Arts & Sciences (MAAS) and UNSW are longstanding partners and collaborators.
