New Class In Electronics and Physical Computing, Oct. 21 and 22

By popular demand, we are adding a new weekend intensive class at
LEMURplex on Basic Electronics and Physical Computing. The class will
run on Saturday and Sunday, October 21st and 22nd, from noon to 6 pm
each day. The cost for the class is $495 including lab fee. The lab
fee includes a MidiTron (see http://miditron.com) plus electronics,
sensors and other parts.

Physical Computing Intensive using MidiTron:
An Intro to Electronics and Interfacing Sensors, Lights and Robotics

Have you ever wondered how to play music by moving your hands or
trigger video clips with the blink of an eye? In one weekend, you
will learn how to do this through tutorials in basic electronics,
MAX/MSP/Jitter programming, sensor building, lights, robotics, and
interactive design using the Miditron (a sensor and robotic interface
device). You will learn these techniques hands-on by building
mini-projects and ideas of your own design. This is of interest to
Artists, Musicians, Dancers, Actors, Engineers, Programmers,
Lighting, Sound and Graphic Designers, and others.

You will have the opportunity to design sensor-based projects using
MidiTron. You will learn basic electronics, MIDI, and programming in
order to implement your projects. You will learn how to incorporate
basic circuits into your projects and art. Subjects covered will
include electronic components, symbols and schematics, electricity
flow, making connections, testing, and troubleshooting. Programming
using MAX/MSP/Jitter will also be taught so that you can control
sound and visuals through the computer. Through guided tutorials and
critiques, we will explore technical and aesthetic issues regarding
their projects. In addition, prior art will be discussed for
inspiration and analysis. No previous knowledge of electronics,
sensors, or programming is assumed.

Instructor: Jonathan Zalben
