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 automated musical instruments (aka Music Bots). Use your favorite off the shelf music software or for the hardware hackers, write your own software to control them. The Music Bots Motor Driver boards  work with Solenoids, vibration motors, DC motors and more to create sound and motion.

Digital Music Instruments

The Sound Clippys Platform is a hardware and software toolkit for making digital music instruments using sound design techniques and simple circuits to create custom interfaces.  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.

The Sound Clippys Hardware Board uses alligator clips and some basic on-board circuits making it easy to build physical controllers that can shape and control sound.
