Conductive Music, a new London-based music technology education organisation, explores new technologies and prototyping of new instruments in collaboration with young people. The Conductive Music learning experience guides young people toward the realisation of their artistic and professional potential, by increasing their awareness and understanding of the links between music, science and technology. As part of their programmes, young people transform everyday objects, including clothes, into tools for musical expression. In parallel, they acquire key skills for digital and creative industries including computer programming, soldering, instrumental design, and sound design.
Conductive Music will showcase some of the new instruments created during their school workshops, featuring Makey Makey boards and everyday materials. They will make these instruments available at their booth for Maker Faire attendees to play sounds and explore their design.
