Modular-Muse is a place to  push the status quo for making music with emergent technologies.

Make new instruments

Interactive technologies and computation open up new possibilities for interacting with sound, creating algorithmic music, and building new interfaces for musical expression.


Music Bots

Create and control musical robots with MIDI from a digital audio workstation or with microcontroller (Arduino) programming. The Music Bots Motor Driver boards  can be used with Solenoids, vibration motors, DC motors and more to create sound and motion.

Use our open source hardware, software and instrument designs to create your own robotic ensemble.

Digital Music Instruments

The Sound Clippys Platform is a hardware and software toolkit for making digital music instruments.  The platform is based on the Arduino microcontroller and Pure Data (Pd) audio programming environment.

The software library for Pd-extended includes objects for sound synthesis, parameter control, audio effects, and to route data from an Arduino to trigger and control sound.
