Tonight I checked out Craft Night at NYC Resistor, which is literally a block from our apartment. It’s a free event where people bring what they’re working on, set up a little workspace and socialize. I was a little shy at first but managed to strike up a conversation with some people that showed up later in the evening. One guy was even kind of enough to give me an ultrasonic sensor to play with! I hope to play with it this weekend so I have something to show him next time.
I spent the evening playing with a Photoresistor hooked up to a MIDI Out into Ableton Live. I managed to get it triggering well and even mapping to a custom scale so it sounds halfway decent.
