First post for a little while. Amongst other things I’ve been taking a look at Sonic-Pi, a program devised for pupils in schools to introduce them to programming ideas via a musical synth program. You can generate tunes and sound effects using the program, and I have used it to code up several pieces of music which are held in a gist here

So far I’ve produced two versions of Frere Jaques as a round, a Bach Minuet and renditions of three Beatles songs.

The program is included in the latest version of Raspian or you can download it to a Pi using suod apt-get update followed by sudo apt-get install sonic-pi

There is a website with further resources here
