Sonic Pi: Live & Coding

Info

During 2014, artists, educators, researchers and technologists have been collaborating on a research and development project using the Sonic Pi computer program, developed by Dr Sam Aaron, to give children and young people the chance to write their own code to create digital music.

The simplicity of the code and the nature of live coding makes it ideal for improvisation, live performance and collaboration. The low cost of the Raspberry Pi (around £25) also makes it affordable and accessible. Initially designed to address the new computing curriculum, Sonic Pi has seen significant musical enhancements which transform it into a musical instrument in its own right.

This pilot project is headed by Cambridge Junction in partnership with Raspberry Pi, University of Cambridge, Cambridgeshire Music, Cambridgeshire Music Education Hub, Hertordshire Music, Music Net East, Royal Opera House Bridge and Norfolk and Norwich Festival Bridge.
