This workshop is intended as an introduction to electronics as well as a hands on workshop where you will build your own sequencer. The inspiration for this comes from the DIY electronic music community. Special thanks goes to Rich Decibels for his outstanding keyquencer designs on which the final project is based.

This workshop will span approximately 3 separate nights with a possibility for more as needed.
