Nicola Woodham’s Soft Map is a Textile Instrument #MusicMonday
Super cool project from Nicola Woodham on vimeo. We can only imagine the choreography potentials a larger version of this project would bring!
Capacitive conductive fabric shapes sewn onto cloth are touched to trigger sound samples. Here she has used a Trill Craft breakout board with a Bela Mini and added her music samples to the Trill Craft Sampler pure data patch. There are just three capacitive sensors attached to the Trill Craft, these respond to being touched with her feet here.
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. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
