Workshop: Creating Music through Coding
April 12, 2022
1:45 PM-4:45 PM
TuneScope (tunescope.org) is a platform developed to introduce coding in the context of music. TuneScope is an extension of the educational programming language Snap! (from the University of California, Berkeley) that uses the W3C Web Audio application program interface (API) to generate musical notes and instruments. The structure of TuneScope was designed in consultation with the Music Department at the University of Virginia. The structure is design to support both the novices who have limited experience with music and student who may play a musical instrument. Participants in this workshop will have the opportunity to explore creation of music using TuneScope. The music activities feature creating a drum track, building a melody, adding chords, and layering tracks together to create a short original song.
