When the pandemic closed our makerspace to public events, most of our members were also not comfortable meeting in person with each other. It took a while to hit our groove, but we've recorded many great conversations related to 3D printing, electronics, home automation, and all sorts of DIY crafts, tools, and projects. We're always looking for more people to join our community, but just having the YouTube channel has helped us stay creative and together as a community.
I've been creating a new kind of electronic musical instrument. It's expressive, it's melodic, it's compact, it's portable, and it's absurdly easy to play. [more inside]
CircuitPython is a version of Python for tiny computers called microcontrollers. We're celebrating CircuitPython Day on 9/9, the snakiest day of the year (or at least, that's what it says here), with livestreams and more. [more inside]
I made a mini-synth and my friend made a film about it.
I made a mind-altering device that uses pulsating light and sound to induce different states in your brain. It is on display this week at Thistle Hall gallery in Wellington, NZ.
Yeah, it's been done, but not as weirdly as it's done here. Using drums, cello, ping-pong balls, wine glasses, bicycles, air pumps, trains, umbrellas, sixxens, piano, feedback, vacuum cleaners, bassoon, birthday candles, kazoo, flute, gankogui, shakuhachi, electric guitar, and most of all Audacity and a hand-held recorder, I'm making a piece that's short and interesting every day. Examples appear on the MeFi Music wall from time to time.
