The Personal Computer Museum proudly presents Emergence: A Cybernetic Musical Series that launches an international tour in Brantford, Ontario, Canada.
Join Dr. David Ogborn (Regina, SK) as he takes you on a musical experience with original music, robotics, and lyrics that will make you think about the future of cybernetics.
Join us for a free workshop at noon that explains how to use microcontrollers to control robotics and then see it in action during the afternoon performance.
Classic computer musicians Rob Adlers (Kitchener, ON) and Leif Bloomquist (Toronto, ON) will open for Dr. Ogborn with a musical experience like no other.
Admission to this event is by donation to the Personal Computer Museum.
DOORS OPEN AT 10:00 AM
Browse the museum to explore the rich history of computers and making music. Various programs and pieces of hardware await you on your tour.
FREE WORKSHOP AT 12:00 PM
Sound Art with Computers, Microcontrollers and Surplus Parts: Dr. David Ogborn, creator and performer of Emergence, will demonstrate the use of readily available technologies (laptop computers, Arduino and PIC microcontrollers, surplus parts) to create art objects, musical performance devices, and cybernetic performers - such as the robotic singer CESARE featured in Emergence! The workshop is for anyone interested in music, electronics and computers, and will be at an introductory level - no prior experience is assumed or required.
CONCERT BEGINS AT 2:00 PM
