Music is for everyone. So this year for Music In Our Schools month, we wanted to make learning music a bit more accessible to everyone by using technology that’s open to everyone: the web.

They’re collaborations between musicians and coders, all built with the freely available Web Audio API. These experiments are just a start. Check out each experiment to find open-source code you can use to build your own.

With the launch of the Raspberry Pi (RPi) four years ago, I was quite exited about to be able to run my Pure Data patches on a small and affordable unit, to build my own little music mashines. This excitement was a little damped when I realized that:

Pythagotron

PythagotronPythagoras of Samos was a man with many hobbys. I know him primarily for his experiments with strings and their musical properties. Thats why I call this robotic string instrument “Pythagotron”.

  • fast and precise intonation
  • 4 actuators for striking, muting, punshing, damping and shorten the string
  • modular and parametric design (OpenScad)
  • most parts are 3D-printed or easy to gather
  • open source
