Coding Music with Sonic Pi
10 June, 8-10pm MYT
Zoom Web Conferencing
In this two-hour workshop, we will:
- Create sounds by typing text into Sonic Pi
- Discover what MIDI note numbers are and how to convert them into music notes
- Change the sound by using different synths
- Produce multiple melody lines
- Add effects (such as reverb) and use parameters (such as amplitude, envelope, panning, etc.) to change the sound quality of the notes
This workshop introduces programming and computer music. In this workshop, the participants get to create their own songs through coding with Sonic Pi, which is based on the popular Ruby programming language.
This workshop is beginner-friendly and requires no prior programming experience. Participants without a musical background are also welcome to attend.
Sonic Pi is an open-source programming environment designed to generate sounds in a live coding environment. It was developed by Sam Aaron in the University of Cambridge Computer Laboratory in collaboration with the Raspberry Pi Foundation.
