‹Programming› 2020
Mon 23 - Thu 26 March 2020 Porto, Portugal

This hands-on workshop introduces Bela (https://bela.io), an embedded maker platform for responsive audio and sensor processing. Bela can be used to create digital musical instruments, synthesisers, and other interactive projects, which can be developed in C/C++, Pure Data (Pd) or Supercollider, amongst other languages. The platform features an on-board browser-based IDE and oscilloscope, a browser GUI integration customisable with p5.js, onboard examples and documentation, and online community resources.


This workshop will focus on creating interactive music projects using Pd and/or C++, bridging the gap between powerful audio processing and physical computing.

During this workshop, you will be guided through some simple circuit-building and programming activities. Bela kits, breadboards, sensors and other electronics will be provided for use during the workshop.

Participants should bring their own laptop (any platform) with a working browser and a pair of headphones.

All welcome

No experience with electronics is required
