If you're specialized in interactive audio, not in programming, you're still able to make musical instruments using the variety of software and gaming hardware we have nowadays. It's pure fun as those instruments can be customized from the top to the bottom. It's possible to use different controllers and play recorded or even resynthesized timbres with them. All this can be done easily: with simple scripts, the power of game engines and audio middleware.
Ressa will show simple ways to make weird musical instruments from the things an average gamer uses every day. The process of researching and developing the instruments, as well as some hints for those who want to try it themselves, will be provided.
Interactive audio specialists, people who have a notion about audio middleware and controllers, those who admire weird inventions and want to be entertained.
