Sensatronic Lab is a project, run in association with Sense Scotland, which aims to make digital music accessible to all, run by a team of digital artists and musicians. Sensatronic Lab have established a way of working that includes building multi-sensory instruments that are inclusive, tactile and the technology is amazing because the potential to experiment is very equalising, imaginations can go wild, the senses are stimulated and inspired. We devise innovative ideas to create total access and independent control. We want everybody to be a part of this incredible open-source digital culture, there is a democratic, and punk ethos at the heart of Sensatronic Lab. We support bands of like-minded young people who love to play live and create their own music. We also run CPD training for musicians, artists, teachers and parents.
