In this workshop participants will create their own interactive audio interfaces using the open source programming language Pure Data for the audio part, and the Arduino open source prototyping platform for the control interface.


After being introduced to both programming languages and basic electronic circuits, the participants will move on to realize their own ideas into a palpable interface, be it a set of sensors, a stompbox, or anything the participants want to create.
In order to be able to create stand-alone interfaces, participants will be introduced to Raspberry Pi embedded computer and the Linux operating system. These will be used in case the computer must be embedded into the device a participant will build during the workshop.

The workshop is split in two main parts. The first part consists of introductory sessions on the programming languages that will be used, as well as electronic circuits and basic use of the Linux operating system. This part will also focus on the communication between the Arduino and Pd, based on a set of Pd abstractions created by the tutor, which facilitate their communication to a great extent.
The second part will focus on building the interfaces of the participants. In this part all the soldering, drilling, parts mounting, and all the manual work will be done. The goal of this workshop is that every participant will leave with a finished project along with its enclosure.
