Sonic Pi is a creative way for people of all ages to engage in electronic music composition through simple coding. In this 1.5 hour workshop, you’ll start by creating basic tones using beeps and synths, then learn about using samples, building up to creating your own tune! Volunteers will be on hand to help and answer questions, but there is no ‘right or wrong’ way and you are encouraged to experiment, fail and try out new ideas!
We’ll end each session by sharing our compositions and we will provide you with material showing you how you can download Sonic Pi for free and continue modifying your digital tunes at home!
This workshop will run multiple times during the day. Attendance is FREE but pre-registration is required:
UPDATE: All workshops are now full but please add yourself to the waiting list and we will let you know if a space becomes available!
We will have laptops available for use or attendees may bring their own and we will help you download Sonic Pi.
This event is organised by Rosa Fox, a developer, musician and Music Informatics graduate, and Curiosity Hub, a Brighton-based provider of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts & Maths) workshops.
