Significantly the exhibition at Masterpiece Art on Norland Place also includes the original Isle of Wight 1970 WEM speaker system and some of the personal equipment used by Hendrix to play to the 600,000 strong crowd at the seminal festival known as Europe’s own Woodstock – his final performance on British soil.
There are also two sculptures by Guy Portelli entitled Hey Joe and Wight Spirit – a large-scale glass mosaic panel which features the handprints of more than 80 musicians who performed at the same event, including the handprint of Hendrix himself which Portelli mapped via the iconic ‘hand on face’ photograph taken by Baron Wolman.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound.
