Nanotopian Bio Module workshop!

Build your own portable Nanotopian MIDI Bio-Sonification Module to record and play-back Bio-Data from nature. 

Tuesday evening, December 3rd, 6:30pm start.  Module  kits  are  $45/pp for  registered  workshop  participants.  Workshop is  $50/pp

Registered participants can purchase their kit the day of the workshop or pay for their module in advance.

Reserve your seat soon, seats/kits sell out fast!


Collaborate sonically with the non-human organisms around you.
Workshop participants receive step by step guidance putting together their Modules and help in understanding how the device works.
This workshop will also cover Creating your own Custom Touch-Pads! Participants will create 1 or 2 touch pad/plates they can use to collect bio-data,  trigger sequencers,  and more! Details included upon registration.

Prerequisite: Basic knowledge of soldering is very important. Here is a link to the Mighty Ohm’s, fullsoldercomic_en

The MIDI Bio-Sonification modules require MIDI connectors (Midi In to the Module).
Musical (instrument) shops sell them or check out Amazon, Moog Audio, Long and McQuade, etc
iConnectivity is great! They offer a package with both USB and Lightening connectors. Non-iPhone/Pad users can use a USB adaptor.
Here are some links for you to check and the Ableton LIVE 30-day trial link. We work with Ableton (have since its beginning) this is why we recommend it but there are other music production/editing apps out there!
Animoog is awesome and amazing and costs $29.99 through the app store:
PropellorheadReason Compact Free:
AudioKit-Synth One
Android synth apps

“Bio-sonification,” basically means using technology to turn the bio-rhythms of living organisms into sound.

Biodata Sonification is a process to translate complex real-time sensor data into musical notes and controls, exploring the auditory sensory modality to provide insights into invisible phenomenon.

The Open Source Biodata-Sonification Modules were originally designed and created by Engineer, Sam Cusumano. Visit Sam’s biodata forum over at electricity for progress Plus, Sam sells a bunch of super cool electronic kits, boards and more!
