Upcoming Teens, Grades 6-8 Events at the Ann Arbor District Library
Maker Music For Teens And Adults: Atari Punk Circuit
Saturday June 15, 2013: 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm -- Downtown Library: Multi-Purpose Room
The Ann Arbor Hacker-Makers of All Hands Active will show us how to use basic circuitry to create a musical instrument, the Atari Punk Circuit. The Circuit uses basic electronics and two knobs to allow people to create basic two-tone electronic sounds, kind of like the soundtracks of the first video games on the Atari video game console.
No need to know electronics to come to this event, that's why we're having it! Learn a bit about electricity, circuits, and have some fun trying out making different sounds. While you're at the Library, take a look at the Music Tools collection, too!
This event is for adults and teens (grade 6 and up).
