Build Your Own Optoelectronic Sequencer with littleBits FULL

Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

Come to this workshop and make your own table-top light sensitive synth and sequencer with littleBits electronic modules. One half player piano, one half drum machine, one half light Theremin – we construct a spinning sequencer that uses color and brightness to playback melodies and control synthesizers.

Beyond mere building, we also cover enough kinematics, optics, and music theory to get the most out of the machine – harmony, noise, beats, Bartok. Designed for all-ages replication, the sequencer uses only basic tools and commonly available materials, without requiring soldering or prior knowledge of electronics or audio.

At the conclusion the workshop, a set of littleBits modules is raffled off.

** If you successfully register for this workshop, please plan to arrive at least 15 minutes prior to the beginning of the session. Those not in attendance 5-minutes before the session begins, may forfeit their spot to the next person on the waitlist.
