Microprocesors for Artists class starts November 4th

Have you ever wanted to build a robot or an interactive art
installation? Have you ever wondered how LEDs, sensors and motors
work? Through collaborative exercises and the development of in-class
projects, you will learn how to program and prototype with an Arduino
microcontroller (http://arduino.cc). This class is geared towards
beginners, and no prior knowledge of electronics or programming is
required.

November ReSiDeNts Announced

LEMUR awards November residencies to three great artists: Michael
Hearst, Roy Vanegas and Hallvardur Asgeirsson.

Michael Hearst is a composer, multi-instrumentalist, writer, and
producer and a founding member of the band One Ring Zero. He plans
on featuring the robots in a series of songs themed on "unusual
creatures".

Roy Vanegas is a composer of ambient electronic music and the sole
member of Noise Floor Music. He’ll be creating ambient, beat-driven
electronic music fused with guitars driven by human and computer.

Hallvardur Asgeirsson, from Reykjavik, Iceland, is a composer
of electroacoustic and classical music, often employing processed
guitars and industrial soundscapes. He plannes to write music for
LEMUR robotic percussion plus a special version of the Dorophone, a
guitar equipped with a feedback mechanism.

Submissions for ReSiDeNt are now open for January and future
residencies. Accepted artists are awarded a one-month residency at
LEMUR to create a new performance or installation utilizing LEMUR’s
musical robots, MIDI controllers and other technologies.

Artists from all performing and installation disciplines are
encouraged to apply, including musicians, composers, dancers,
choreographers, video artists, interactive installation artists,
performance artists, multimedia artists and others.
