dorkbot chicago::: May 27

http://dorkbotchicago.blogspot.com/

It's on again as Alex Inglizian rocks a presentation/workshop on "integrating hacked, modified, and circuit bent devices into a tempo synced electronic music system." This is your chance to get your hands dirty @ dorkbot Chicago and dig into a fresh plate of Chicago style dirty circuit bending! As always, dorkbot Chicago is FREE (as in pizza and beer, and also free as in speech and software)!

DATE:

Wednesday May 27 2009

TIME:

7 PM

LOCATION:

Enemy Sound
1550 N. Milwaukee Ave 3rd Fl.
Chicago, IL 60622

COST:

Free

WTF:

What is a "dorkbot"?! The idea of the international dorkbot network is "people doing strange things with electricity" and meeting in informal, friendly environments to discuss their projects. These projects could include hardware hacks, New Media Art projects, creative code, circuit bent musical instruments or wild DIY garage science!

Electronic_Rap_Machine





Built from the circuitry of an 'electronic rap machine' toy. Beats and fx can be triggered via external sequencer. In this case i am using a tr-606. This machine will produce nice crunchy bit reduced rhythmic textures and spazzy patterns.

arduino_cv/gate_interface - proof of concept

Experiments with using arduino as a CV/Gate interface for analog synthesizers. Controlled via max/MSP step sequencer communicating w/ arduino via SimpleMessageSystem. Output from arduino is PWM and filtered with a simple RC circuit for a smooth +5 volts CV pitch control.
