Cut Bait - 10 Years of Dorkbot

0 views

Published on

I've been making software and hardware to make music instead of actually making music for ten years and I blame dorkbot. "Scared Straight" style, I'll show you the things I presented exactly ten years ago at the very first dorkbot-nyc and then do some group therapy to try to convince at least one of you to put away the italian microcontrollers with python interpreters running Conway's Game of Creative Death and go make something beautiful that your mother will love. She misses you, you know.
