Moving music: how to make and use motion sensors

Jonathan Green has been working with motion sensors in music for nearly ten years and has built up a random knowledge of devices and techniques. This workshop is an opportunity to see the cutting edge in wireless motion sensing technology, and to ask questions and make suggestions.

Motion sensors are all around us, hidden in many everyday objects. But how can they be used to capture our movements and make music? From circuit boards to software mapping to wearable sensors, this workshop uncovers the inner workings of motion sensors. Secret ‘cheats’ will be revealed (do you really need a soldering iron?) as well as links to labour-saving devices (the wheel has already been invented) and access to Jonathan’s Max patches (bring a USB memory stick). Manufacturers ensure that working with sensors is actually very easy… …if you know where to look!
