Intro to Making Music with GNU/Linux

The range of options for music-making on GNU/Linux with free/libre/open tools stretches from music-focused programming languages like CSound and PureData to simple tools like Audacity, Ardour, Guitarix, Hydrogen, and Musescore which are accessible to novice members of the general public.

We’ll explore the options for different sorts of musical creativity, focusing on the basic tools and how to get them set up effectively on GNU/Linux, and how to get involved with the Linux music community. We will emphasize the basic audio set-up issues and common tools for beginner with brief mention of some of the more advanced options.
