Step-by-Step MaKey MaKey Monome Tutorial, Featuring Adafruit Neopixels! #makeymakey #makeymakeymonday

Jenna deBoisblanc reached out to us to share her MaKey MaKey monome project: “the project feature Neopixels and a variety of other parts and tools available on the Adafruit website.”

Step-by-Step MaKey MaKey Monome Tutorial, Featuring Adafruit Neopixels!:

Objective: build a monome – a complex electronic music instrument – using easy-to-learn, inexpensive components and a process that’s so easy a kid could do it.

Gist: This touchscreen music instrument is essentially 4 parts:

  1. MaKey MaKey (or Arduino)
  2. Neopixels
  3. copper tape
  4. cardboard

Sound is produced in either Scratch (visual programming language for kids) or Processing (visual programming language for artists). Additional info on my website: jdeboi.com.
