In this class, students will build an electronic device that will transmit their movements to produce an interactive picture in real-time. The class will explore the creative process of mark-making through computer science and technology by using commercial accelerometers in conjunction with an open source microprocessor. Family and friends will be invited on the last day of the workshop to see the students present an interdisciplinary performance where a digital painting is produced in real-time. $125 ($110 members). 701 Whaley St. 803-319-9949.

Now that you understand the musical alphabet, it’s time to put those letters together to create scales. Notes are the building blocks for creating scales, which are just a collection of notes in order of pitch. In music theory, a scale is any set of musical notes ordered by fundamental frequency or pitch. Many musical scales in the West use eight notes. The distance between the first and eighth note is called an octave. A scale ordered by increasing pitch is an ascending scale, and a scale ordered by decreasing pitch is a descending scale. Several scales are the same both ascending, and descending, but this need not be the case. Very often, a scale is defined over an interval (commonly the octave), after which it repeats. The most common scales use intervals of five, six or seven different tones. There are different types of scales, but major scales are the most common. Major scales are created by arranging whole-steps and half-steps in a particular pattern.
