For centuries we have carefully handcrafted the interactions of musical instruments, optimizing them for intuitive learning, playability and comfort yet many of the newest tools of musical expression are cold, intangible and use technologies in ways that ignore hundreds of years of accumulated knowledge. Sonic Interactions is a hands-on workshop in combining concept, craft and composition. This workshop aims to expand our creative repertoire by introducing basic electronics and coding in the context of musical instruments to explore a variety of tangible ways for us to interact with sound to create music. This workshop takes rapid prototyping to the next level using tools like Raspberry Pi, Python and PureData.

Learn how to create tangible interactions with devices that create music and explore how electronics and coding can expand your design repertoire. Each participant walks away with a new musical instrument, a new perspective on Interaction Design, and a Sonic Interactions Pi Kit which can be reused to create a variety of synths, sequencers and audio effects.
