James Rutter graduated from UMass Amherst with a degree in Electrical Engineering. After college, he was hired as an Americorps Vista by AS220, a socially active "art space" that has made quite a name for itself in Providence. This is a video demonstration of the work done in James' Electronic Music class, one of the many things he does for AS220.
The class is an after school program for High School aged youth. Students were taught concepts in sound and electrical engineering, and proceeded to create sound and music by dismantling old toys, musical instruments, and everyday electronics.
