Have you ever wanted to collaborate with a Cabbage? Or jam with a Geranium?

About this event

Are you bored of waiting for your bandmates to turn up to practice? What if your future accompanist is sitting in a pot of dirt in your living room.

This is a workshop on how to measure a plant's electronic resistance and turn that into a digital instrument. This electronic resistance changes moment to moment and in much larger arcs throughout the day.

We will use a combination of a hacked Wii balance board and the programming language MAX. I will show you how to scale these minute electrical measurements so as they work within the MIDI range or output them as straight oscillators.

You will need.

A laptop, either windows or Mac is fine.

MAX installed (the trial version lasts for a month).

OSCulator installed.

A bit of technical or coding knowledge.

I will have a number of Wii Balance boards available but if you would like to bring along Wii remote controls this method would work with those also.
