Sensing the world with Pure Data: MIDI Workshop

This workshop delved into the integration of sensors as inputs for modulating Pure Data.  Over the course of a 2 part series workshop, students learned how to use Pure Data to build patches for audio control.  For the second part, we focused on the practical application of these tools, guiding participants through building their own midi controllers using microcontrollers programmed with Arduino. This hands-on approach allowed each attendee to leave with their own interactive instrument, a tangible representation of the skills and concepts covered. This workshop was originally offered at the Make+Think+Code lab at Pacific Northwest College of Art, which I taught alongside Hugo Paris, where we combined our expertise to offer a comprehensive and immersive learning experience.
