The Centre for Computing History at Rene Court Coldhams Road Cambridge is holding a workshop for those that fancy programming Raspberry Pi music on Saturday 8th February with Dr Sam Aaron and Rachel Drury.
This workshop will explore using the Raspberry Pi and Sam's Sonic Pi software to make music and look at how a group of artists have used it for creative projects.
Sonic Pi is an open source programming environment designed to explore and teach programming concepts through the process of creating new sounds. The program comes with an associated scheme of work, which emphasises the importance of creativity in the learning process and gives users the control to turn their sonic ideas into reality.
Sonic Pi has been designed to be as simple as possible to get started coding sounds and rhythms. Simply type your program, press play and hear the results.
Held in the newly furbished Hauser Studio, which is fully kitted with Raspberry Pi, the workshop is suitable for both adults and children, although they ask that children under 12 be accompanied by an adult.
The workshop costs £7 per person including entry to the museum and takes place on Saturday 8th February between 2pm until 4.30pm, but places are strictly limited to 30, with two people sharing each computer, so we are being urged to book in quickly.
