{almost} Free Radio Stations: Building the radioOrgan by Ed Bear

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The workshop will cover the basics of running a low-power radio station for art and fun, from the circuitry to the legal limits. At the conclusion of this two hour workshop every participant will have one hacked iTrip transmitter which is secretly a synthesizer!!!

Surplus and discarded electronics are ubiquitous and ripe with creative applications. Griffin Electronics’ iTrip, for example, happens to be a compact, programmable radio station. The rapid versioning of Apple products and the company’s restrictive accessory policies have left almost every iteration of the iTrip obsolete and very cheap!

This workshop is the first in a multi-part curriculum which develops the radioOrgan platform that redesigns the iTrip as creative and educational experiences. Material and tools presented in workshops later this summer will connect the iTrip to Ableton Live, Max/MXP, Processing, Unity3D, and more.
