What does a webpage sound like? We will be using Raspberry Pi computers, python code and midi sound modules to convert data from webpages into music. The Raspberry Pi is a low cost, credit-card sized computer that enables people of all ages to explore computing, and to learn how to program in languages like Scratch and Python. It has the ability to interact with the outside world, and has been used in a wide array of digital maker projects, from music machines and parent detectors to weather stations and tweeting birdhouses with infra-red cameras. If you have a midi module, keyboard or USB interface please bring it / them along.
