Piccolo is a polyrythmic errorist MIDI sequencer, slightly verging towards a proto-programmable interpreter

the current prototype ( PCBv2 ) is based on the ATmega2560 architecture and MIDI protocol - the next one will use a Teensy3.5 for more speed and memory

the best place to see some movies of it in action is on my fb page : https://www.facebook.com/sylvain.vaniniitu - after new year i'll compile all those movies for a collection in Vimeo.

It features :

Big thanks to : Ikue Mori, Steve Reich, Two Lone Swordsmen, Christian Wolff, Seth Horvitz (Sutekh), Phillus and Actress for most inspiration on building this thing.

Development :


The future :

We have built 3 prototypes given away for 3 months for feedback to various musicians. -> oct/nov 2018
We will then upgrade the core of the machine to ESP32 or more likely Teensy3.5 ( faster, more memory )
Later on, most likely a small edition of 12 Piccolos with a solid metal or wooden case - production price should be under 300€ - get in touch if you are interested at ini.itu.rec@gmail.com

We will be present at Maker Faire Lille 2019 !
