Sonic Pi is a code-based music creation and performance tool written in Ruby, and packaged for use on the Raspberry Pi or desktop. It is a powerful tool for computer-generated music, while also being accessible enough for a novice to play and learn (both music and coding). I'll introduce this fun, engaging software, its community, and demonstrate its use.

This will be a virtual meeting on Zoom. The link to this Zoom meeting will be emailed one hour before the meeting to those that have RSVP'd Yes on our copy of this meeting annoucement.

Note: Be sure to have a check mark in "Email me when someone sends me a message" on your Meetup account at this location in order to receive the email notification of the Zoom URL for connecting to the meeting.

There will NOT be a in-person Meeting after the Meeting planned for this presentation, due to the State of Illinois Covid-19 virus direction for Social Distancing for groups. However expect there to be time after the presentation for a virtual Meeting After the Meeting.
