Mozzi can be used to generate algorithmic music for an installation, wearable sounds for a performance, or interactive sonifications of sensors, on a small, modular and super cheap Arduino, without the hassle of additional hardware, message passing or external synths. Mozzi sounds can be quickly and easily constructed from familiar synthesis units like oscillators, delays, filters and envelopes, and as Mozzi is open source, you can contribute your own extensions to the community. Mozzi has been used for a variety of really great projects.
Through guided making, participants will learn to use Mozzi and Arduino to combine sensors with synthesis to make complex, reactive sounds. By the end of the workshop everyone will have created their own responsive sound-generating objects.
