Create an instrument of your own design out of found materials. Once you have built your instrument you will be adding a piezo sensor along with an audio jack to it so you are able to amplify your instrument as well as record the sound it makes straight into the computer where it can be edited. The Instrument is due 2/8/13.
Draw three instrument designs you would like to create. From these three drawings you will choose one to build as a real instrument that is able to produce sound. With these drawings should be a parts list. Due 1/28/13.
