Project: Cambridge Junction

The project is exploring the creative potential of live coding to provide new pathways for young people into digital music. It involves the creation of a customisable and codable musical instrument based on the Raspberry Pi computer. The project also explores the international phenomena of Live Coding as an emerging art-form and seeks to empower young people as co-producers. The project seeks to develop a new business model for art organisations to engage with schools that will make use of the open source, online tools developed.
