|The Theme You Picked: Simple Music Maker|
"The discovery of song and the creation of musical instruments both owed their origin to a human impulse which lies much deeper than conscious intention: the need for rhythm in life… the need is a deep one, transcending thought, and disregarded at our peril." - Richard Baker
"I have my own particular sorrows, loves, delights; and you have yours. But sorrow, gladness, yearning, hope, love, belong to all of us, in all times and in all places. Music is the only means whereby we feel these emotions in their universality." - H.A. Overstreet
“Music is an art that expresses the inexpressible. It rises far above what words can mean or the intelligence define. Its domain is the imponderable and impalpable land of the unconscious.” - Charles Munch
The theme for this month is Simple Music Maker and it comes from DAB . Music is something close to many people's hearts, including yours truly. Use whatever electronic components you like to create a device that plays music. It can be an instrument or an electronic device that plays music.
You can create any electronics device for musical instrumentation using electronic components such as a Raspberry Pi, a Beagleboard, Arduino, stepper motors, microphones, light sensors, speakers, and more. Or you can create a device for the consumption of music using electronics components.
|Be Original||Stick to the Theme|
|List the Steps||Submit Video Proof|
Every month you'll have a new poll where you'll get to decide an upcoming project competition, based on your interests, that will take place a couple of months in advance. Themes are broad in scope so that everyone can participate regardless of skill set.
