There was lots of exciting musical output from our recent weekend workshop at the Royal Albert Memorial Museum & Art Gallery, Exeter, where we explored the effect digital technology has on creating music.
We took inspiration from within the museum capturing and recording sounds on iPads which we then used as starting points to create new pieces of digital music. Editing, manipulating and structuring these ‘found sounds’, we created new musical pieces and original soundscapes.
Live and improvised digital music was created using Loop pedals and vocals and explored alongside sounds triggered by midi keyboard.
We also explored digital routes to playing back our creations using Bare Conductive Touch Board’s and electric paint. The Touch Board has been specifically designed to be a microcontroller board with dedicated capacitive touch and MP3 decoder ICs.
