Introduction (Xavier McDonald)

Hello! My name is Xavier McDonald and I am a Digital Culture major Music emphasis.
I have experience with electronics and programming from previous DC courses, and my capstone utilized sensors and microcontrollers. Soldering was challenging at first, but now I enjoy it!
My final capstone involved fashioning a glove with a color sensor in order to create music output. I like the idea of wearable tech (fabrics/clothing). Per my major, I have used laser cutting and 3D printing for projects. I enjoy working on personal stuff as well. I’m in the process of building an electronic skateboard!
With music in mind, I would love to develop a TUI for music making software. I think the 2D table top interfaces are fascinating. I would love to expand on an existing concept and it apply it to music!
