An amazing opportunity to find out what makes Chikashi Miyama‘s instruments work! Sign up to a workshop with him to learn about the brain inside the interfaces: AVR micro-controllers produced by ATMEL. In Chikashi’s workshop, he will demonstrate the basic features of the micro-controller, discuss several musical application (PWM, MIDI, etc), and introduce how he employs it in his own interfaces.
All of Chikashi’s self-designed interfaces utilize AVR micro-controllers to collect data from the sensors and send this info to the host computer. AVR micro-controllers are available all over the world, inexpensive, and easy to program. In fact, AVR is used as the core component of Arduino.
