components into personalised and
interactive musical instruments.

The workshop is being run by Dr. Enrico Bertelli and Ms Emily Robertson of Conductive Music - http://conductivemusic.tumblr.com/
1. Students will be introduced to the community of do it yourself (DIY) musicians and linked to the world of open source software, a resource which will allow them to continue exploring music technology in their own homes. The personalised instruments they will develop through this process will reflect their creativity and personality, giving them the opportunity to perform on a unique instrument which controls their own selection of sounds.
2. The performance, creativity and team building exercises we have included in the project will show the students that they can contribute through an array of multi-media performance techniques. We intend to show them that the world of Music Technology is not a distant and expensive one. We will make them an integral part of the open source music community and invite them to attend and perform as part of similar events (London Music Hackspace, London Max/MSP society).
1. Students will be guided through the steps necessary to transform lifeless electronic components into personalised and interactive musical instruments, each with a design that is a result of their own creativity. This physical skills-gathering process and evidence of their individual ability to create something complex, unique and functional will raise self-esteem and awareness of their potential as a part of the artistic and technical communities. The performance experience at the end of each workshop will allow them to share their creation, learn how to receive feedback and present their ideas to peers and audiences.
2. Students will gain manual and design skills. The project is not just about soldering; it is about visualising a product (instrument design) and overcoming obstacles on the way to its realisation. Throughout this process, students will gain knowledge of electronic components, coding and programming. We will highlight connections with open source communities, so that students will be able to follow up on skills and ideas after the workshop.
