Video - Sonic Pi

Code has always been about creative pursuit for me.

This video showcases Sonic Pi. It is an open source project that I really appreciate. Sonic Pi enables live coding of music. If you are already a programmer it can turn your hard-earned, often dry, programming capabilities into musical potential. If you know music, you might just learn programming. If you know neither it is a fantastically fun place to start.

The video was entirely funded by Underjord out of love for cool open source software projects. Thanks to Sam Aaron of Sonic Pi for help on music choice and working through the idea. Mad props to DJ_Dave for the track which is in Sonic Pi’s examples, slightly modified for this presentation.

The project is focused on learning and enables any kid or teacher with a computer, even a Raspberry Pi, to get going.
