Explore the relationships between music and coding in this hands on workshop at Manchester Met. In the session, participants will explore the ways in which ‘instructions’ and ‘sequences’ in music are similar to core concepts of coding in computing. They will be introduced to Sonic Pi – a platform in which users construct electronic music through code. Participants will will then be given space to be creative with this technology, and construct their own auditory masterpieces! Through the workshop, participants will engage with a range of core concepts from coding, including sequencing, iteration and loops and debugging,
This event is facilitated by EdLab – a Faculty of Education programme which supports undergraduate students in developing and running educational outreach activities.
The activity is suitable for children between the ages of 8 and 16, who must be accompanied by an adult.
