This workshop weekend with Ed Devane will cover the basics of using Arduino, an electronics prototyping platform. Participants will learn how to make MIDI controllers to interface sensors and actuators with software such as Ableton Live. Also covered in the workshop will be various methods of amplifying and processing sound using Ableton Live, speakers, pickups and other items.
This weekend is open to adult participants from cross artform backgrounds and no programming or electronics experience is required. It is essential that participants bring a modern laptop to be able to run Arduino software and Ableton Live (demo).
Ed Devane is a sound artist, interaction designer and educator. He has created interactive sound installations, musical performances, instruments and workshops all over Ireland, most recently in Science Gallery Dublin, NerveCentre Derry, NCAD, LSAD and UL.
