Community Event – 26-7-2016 – Robot Orchestra Making with Noisy Toys

Help build the Mechanised String Section for Manchester’s Robot Orchestra. This will involve several different skills:


  • DIY/woodwork skills to attach the mini machines and string instruments onto a large frame · Electrical and audio installation to connect relays and contact microphones
  • Programing so that we can control the different instruments to start and stop at different times via Arduino.
  • Musical skills so that we can tune the stringed instruments to different keys and structure the sequence to fit in with a musical score written by the Hale Orchestra


This workshop is supported by EdLab as part of the 2016 Brooks Community Learning Festival.
