Week 5: DIY Music

AUGUST 4th–8th — We may not know the name of the song, but if you hum a few bars, we can probably build an instrument to play it on. We learn how at Maker Camp this week. While building a guitar or an amplifier may seem like something only craftspeople can do, you’d be surprised what you can make with a few parts scrounged from around your home. Then it’ll be time to jam with other campers and make some noise! Supercampers: To make every single Daily Project this week, some things you may need to buy are a piezo and an Arduino. The rest you probably have on hand, but please check each project page for the tools and materials to be sure you are all stocked up. We're always adding to each week's schedule: check back for updates!

Fruit Loops — no tin foil needed.

Technical.ly (@technicallyPHL) covers the Drexel's Summer Music Technology Program:

Malcolm Lampkin turned a kiwi into a keyboard last week.

He designed musical loops in Apple’s Garage Band app, hooked a computer up to the kiwi (and a banana and an apple) via a MaKey MaKey kit and called it Fruit Loops — no tin foil needed.

“Fruits are great conductors,” Lampkin, 15, of Horsham, said, “because of the juices.”
