This workshop will focus on granular synthesis and live interaction with sensors using the SuperCollider programming environment and the Arduino electronics prototyping platform. After an introduction to the software/hardware involved. Participants will be guided into using miscellaneous sensors to interface with their own granular synthesis algorithm and start working on their own interactive pieces. 

No further programming or other experienced is assumed. It is essential that you bring your own laptop and a pair of headphones.

an arduino board; a breadboard; jumpers; resistors; and whatever analogue sensor interest you: accelerometer; thermistors; photo-resistors; piezo-transducers; soft-pots; flex; tilt, etc.
