I’m excited to share a workshop North Coast Modular Collective is holding in partnership with Ann Arbor makerspace, All Hands Active.
About This Webinar
Using Orca and Hydra, this workshop will walk participants step by step through building their own computer programs for creating improvised sound and animations.
Hosted by non-profits All Hands Active and North Coast Modular Collective.
Suggested $20 donation.
All proceeds will be split equally between AHA and NCMC.
MacOS/Windows/Linux (not a Chromebook)
Install the following prior to workshop:
James Kruth (Board of Directors at All Hands Active)
- James is very interested in esoteric and unlikely ways to make and perform music, especially when they involve old computers and game consoles. He discovered Orca a year ago and since then it has become a minor obsession. He has a long term goal to perform electronic music for a larger audience than just the rubber duck sitting on his desk.
David Minnix (Core Organizer at North Coast Modular Collective)
- David is a musician and software developer making music and tools for creating art, and one of the organizers of North Coast Modular Collective. He loves old hardware drum machines and synthesizers, braindance techno, and making art with algorithms. He is a big fan of the livecoding/algorave scene and thinks the whole thing is pretty punk rock. He likes to contribute to it when he can.
