Build any digital instrument you can think of with Max and Arduino


The perfect introduction to electronic music. This wonderful opportunity is open to all Welsh (and Welsh-based) composers and it's FREE! 


During two workshops led by composers Odilon Marcenaro and Owen Lloyd, you will learn how to create a digital instrument with the Max programming language, and then build a hardware interface for it using the Arduino physical computing platform and a variety of sensors and controllers. No programming experience or knowledge of electronics is required. Please bring a laptop (remember a USB adapter if it’s a recent Mac).


Selected composers will be required to attend both Hack Days.
