Workshop: Build a Light-Controlled Oscillator

On Saturday the 17th May at 1pm we will be running a workshop at the Audio Foundation. In this workshop you will be provided with a circuit-board, electronic components, and guidance necessary to build an oscillator whose pitch and volume are controlled by light. You can play this instrument theremin-style by moving your hands near the light-sensors, or put it in moving shadows or near flashing lights for automatic control. The circuit-board is specially designed to fit into a tin can.

Idea for a new instrument:

You can get these alcohol sensors

mq303and I was thinking, an idea for an instrument would be a thing where you had to blow into a tube and the sensor checks how much alcohol is in your breath. If you haven’t had enough to drink the instrument makes no sound. Keep drinking and try again, now you’re drunk enough and it starts to make sound.
