The Electronic Jug Band

The Electronic Jug Band

An exhibit showing how to use the latest low cost microcontroller and sensor technologies to create DIY electronic music instruments. The design and building of such instruments is a hands-on learning experience in both maker electronics and music concepts.


The idea is similar to the creation of a Jug Band in the mid 1900s where individuals used household materials to create their instruments and then played them together to make music. In this case however the use of modern electronics provides many more possibilities and a much larger scope for creativity.

Rick MacDonald became a Maker at the age of ten when his parents bought him an electronics kit for his birthday to try and prevent him from taking things apart. Ultimately he became an embedded software and electronics designer and then entrepreneur. Now on permanent sabbatical he is an active participant in the Maker Movement and hopes to pass on the benefit of some of his years of experience.
