Explorations in Musical Tinkering: electronic balloons, rapping computers and beyond
Eric Rosenbaum joins us to talk about his interests in designing for creative play. His tools are all about bringing your imagination to life by helping you make things you care about. He loves to see how using my tools can transform people’s sense of what they can make and who they can become.
From Eric: “I’ll share my journey over the past few years developing new technologies for learning through creative play with music. I’m a co-inventor of the MaKey MaKey invention kit, which lets you turn everyday objects into musical instruments. I’ve also developed iPad apps that let you paint with your voice, build interactive musical worlds and tell musical stories. I’ll share my recent work with Google and with the Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz. Finally, I will show my latest work extending the musical and sound capabilities of the Scratch programming environment, to open up new expressive possibilities for learning through musical tinkering.”
