Join us for an inspirational event with a very special guest, Sam Aaron, a creative coder working at the intersection between technology research, education and the arts.
He is the creator of the free Live Coding Synthesis environment Sonic Pi which is used both by educators teach Computing in schools as well as musicians to perform at international music festivals. By day Sam works as a Research Associate at the University of Cambridge Computer Laboratory and by night Sam codes music live for people to dance to.
In this highly interactive talk, Sam will introduce the basics of code using Sonic Pi. You will quickly learn how how people with no prior coding experience can easily get started whilst having a lot of fun making music at the same time. Sam will then take a fast-paced deep dive into the musical depths Sonic Pi has to offer, ending with a short performance. This session aims not just to showcase the creative potential of code but to also demonstrate how Sonic Pi can help you unlock your own creative potential.
Maker Monday is all about getting creative with technologies, exploring something new and inspiring ideas.
The event is free, as is the beer and pizza. To make sure we have enough slices, please book your place. See you there!
Our next event is on Monday 22nd May at Cherry Red’s Cafe in central Birmingham
