The folks over at Teague labs have built a fun Arduino based generative music maker with a unique minimalist keyed user interface called Muze. Instead of directly manipulating instruments, you use a color coded knob to tune or influence multiple aspects of the score Muse plays at once. If you’d like to play along, you can download the code and Eagle schematic from their site.

Muse: a musical instrument that plays with you

I make cool stuff and write about other people making cool stuff on makezine.com. If you have something you think I should see, send me a tip.

    Those links seem to have some bogus HTML markup on them.  Also, hasn’t this been featured on the Make blog before:

    You’re correct on both accounts. I’ve fixed the wonky markup, but will leave it up because I think it’s cool. I always do a quick search to check for dupes, but don’t always catch them. Cheers!
