Event description
As part of BDF's Big Digital Fair, this workshop is an introduction to creating and processing digital audio using microcontrollers.

About this Event

Taking place at Platf9rm (Hove Town Hall), Brighton Digital Festival's Big Digital Fair, in partnership with Legal & General, is a fun daytime event that will showcase digital business, digital making and arts from across the city and beyond.

Join Sound artist and DIY electronic instrument maker, Scott Pitkethly (AKA Cutlasses), for his Digital Audio with Microcontrollers Workshop.

An introduction to creating and processing digital audio using microcontrollers. The workshop will centre around the Teensy, a development board similar to Arduino. You will ‘bread board’ (a method of quickly prototyping circuits without soldering) your own circuit, which will utilise the Teensy along with buttons, leds, and potentiometers, which you'll patch together to create a circuit. You’ll learn how to use the Teensy’s audio library and visual design tool, to connect together audio effects, and download the result onto your circuit, allowing you to experiment with sculpting and distorting sound.

The workshop will not require any specialist knowledge. There will be some programming and connecting of components, but you will be taught everything you need to know.

You must bring :

  • Laptop (capable of running Arduino IDE, it runs on Linux, macOS and Windows and doesn’t require a particularly powerful machine)
  • Headphones

Workshop Tickets: £5

For further information and any queries, email: cutlassesmusic@gmail.com

After the Workshop there will be an early evening social with drinks and music.
