Nick Chelyapov is a designer turned music gear head who wanted to make a sound toy that was approachable but deep enough to be a real instrument. We'll learn about Bitty, an Arduino based synthesizer and drum machine. Battery powered, onboard speaker, fits in your pocket. It’s really fun!

Nick Yulman works with sound and interactive media in a variety of contexts including installation art, audio storytelling, and music. He has presented his work internationally at venues including Paris' Palais de Tokyo, The Centre for Contemporary Art Warsaw, MoMa PS1, Flux Factory, UnionDocs, The Museum of the Moving Image, and the New York Hall of Science. In October, he'll be installing with his robotic musical instruments at Areté Gallery in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. He will show us how musical robots helped him stop worrying and love digital music.

See you on September 20th!
