DIY Audio

This semester I'm teaching a course in circuit bending called "DIY Audio." Part of my motivation to teach this course is that electronic musicians rely so much on software to create and manipulate sounds that we sometimes lose sight of our roots. Students in this class are learning about basic electronics, soldering as well as getting a chance to be creative and really sniff out as many different sounds from their electronics as possible. We've built speakers, microphones, hacked radios...this week we will be hacking electronic toys, which will be a lot of fun.

As you can imagine, this class has attracted a lot of attention from the student body and I've already been interviewed twice for the student paper. Below is a link to the most recent story. Enjoy!
