The concept of one bit music explodes the idea that an expensive computer is required to make computer-based music. Cheap microcontrollers are programmed with a variety of musical functions which can be played and manipulated in real time by a performer. Longer sequences can be programmed and allowed to run autonomously. In the workshop we will build a minimal circuit around the ATmega8 chip, including a speaker, batteries and a few input devices. We then program this microcontroller to output minimal square wave audio. How can we write algorithms that produce interesting music on such a barebone setup? What techniques can we re-introduce from the 8-bit home computer era?
Workshop leader Fredrik Olofsson will transfer his considerable knowledge of music programming with SuperCollider to this tiny and challenging platform.
