Tara Pattenden: TEENSYnth

Online workshop about sound & Teensy!

30 January 2021 | 10am – 1pm @ online

This workshop covers how to use the Teensy for making sounds by using a Teensy 3.2 and some electronic components like potentiometers.

Participants will build a small synth with 1-2 oscillators using the Teensy Audio System Design Tool. The workshop will cover a range of useful info for beginners such as how to use the audio system design tool to create synths, and how to connect and scale inputs in Arduino code so you can use potentiometers and sensors.


Tara Pattenden is an experimental musician and instrument maker who has been performing experimental sound for over 20 years.

Her wearable, fabric-based electronic instruments enable new expressive ways to play electronic sounds. The instruments create sound through movements and gestures such as stretching, and she uses this custom hardware to facilitate audience agency through inviting their participation in the performance during live sets.
With a background in computer and interactive art she is self taught in the field of electronics and makes and sells several electronic instruments including the Lerango Drone, Noisy Bstrd and the Grim Beeper. She performs solo as Phantom Chips as well as performing in Body Vice, the Fckn Bstrds and Goodiepal and Pals.
