Here’s a great introduction to singing into using synthesizers with vocals from Katrina Cain, from Perfect Circuit:
Accompanying a performer by processing them with effects can require as much attentive listening and musical chemistry as playing an instrument alongside them. But contrasting with the harmonic or rhythmic bed provided by a guitar or piano, the right effects can smear vocals or other instruments into vast textures accentuated by performative gestures from the synthesist. Granted, it would be hard to develop this to an advanced level over the course of a single video shoot that only lasts a few hours, but we hope that some of the ideas presented here spur inspiration for your own collaborative projects.
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.
