I created the live coding synth Sonic Pi http://sonic-pi.net

Over a million people have used Sonic Pi around the world. It has been used in schools to teach computer science and music as well as in universities as part of music tech courses.

It's also a new musical instrument that allows you to turn code in to music. By writing code live you can perform like a DJ. This is called live coding.

Sonic Pi has featured in The Rolling Stone magazine, has been awarded a Google prize, was used to teach 2000 African children as part of Code Bus Africa and will be used to perform in the Royal Albert Hall in 2019.

Sonic Pi is entirely free, open source and is available for Mac, Windows and Linux. It even runs on a Raspberry Pi.

I need your help to continue working on Sonic Pi to ensure it stays healthy, works for everyone and so I can finish all the exciting things I have planned such as:

  • A code sharing platform
  • Collaborative jamming (Sonic Pi orchestras)
  • Distributed performances (stream your Sonic Pi performance around the world)
  • Projects (so you can manage multiple compositions/performances)
  • and much more....

Thank-you so much to everyone that has supported me so far. It means such a lot to me :-)

Goals
351 of 1000 patrons
Freedom! With at least 1000 patrons I'll be able to continue full-time development on Sonic Pi without having to continually search for funding - which consumes a lot of time (both in terms of application and in terms of reporting).
