Excerpt

Imagine a place where Ruby meets Music, its called MAGIC LAND.

Music is not a lot different from programming. In this talk we will see how.
I will talk about this amazing piece of open-source software called SonicPi. SonicPi is a new kind of musical instrument. Think about it, you write code to make music. And it gets even better, code is written in a ruby DSL. Also I will talk about notes, samples, synth and other musical things SonicPi lets us do it.

Don't worry if do not get these terms. When I started, I did not either. But at the end of the talk, you will know how to make music.

Description

The audience will get to know how easy it is to get started with SonicPi and play your first notes. They will also see that it is a powerful software which could produce almost any kind of music you can think of. Sky is the limit with music.

This talk is for a 10 year old kid. This talk is also for an experienced programmer. This talk is for every person out there that has even the slightest of interest in music.
If you have never played any musical instrument, it looks terrifying. And it is. But SonicPi brings you one step closer to music. Also, SonicPi is a great way to introduce kids to programming.
