In the workshop “AIR RHYTHM MACHINE” Branimir Štivić will guide you through his new media artistic process using practical examples to introduce you to live coding, physical computing and MIDI sequencing. As an artist, Branimir works with pneumatic systems, microcontrollers, breath sensors, live coding environment, and music creation software. Pneumatics is the science and technology of pressurized air—using piped, compressed air to transmit force and energy. With his guidance, you will learn how to control air to produce music through DIY use of industrial automation components and everyday objects.
With a simple practical example of making a compressed air drum machine we will go through the basics of pneumatic systems, flow control with electromagnetic pneumatic valves, percussion with pneumatic cylinders, force transmission, air pressure, compressors, Helmholtz resonators and principle of air resonance in cavities.
