The Arduino micro-controller is an extremely popular and powerful tool that mediates the analog and digital worlds and is used to create robotics, dynamic objects, installations, interactive instruments/tools, the list is potentially endless. Through a combination of demonstrations and explanations, practical exercises, and individual work, participants will be guided through the basics of electronics, circuits, sensors, programming, actuators, and audio synthesis as to gain the understanding of the general usages of the Arduino with the end goal of building a synthesizer. This workshop is directed at those with no previous electronics or programming experience, looking to refresh their basic understanding, or just starting out.
