The Shep Sequencer is a repurposed wooden animal toy made into a musical step sequencer for CRUFTfest 2012. The electronics are handled by Arduino and the audio engine is Pure Data. Drum sounds are a mashup of the classic Linndrum + some lovely freesound.org animal samples.

The basic drive was to create an instrument with a considerable amount of siillyness that is also musically programmable - enjoyable for both little and big kids alike.

Here I show you a few pre-programmed sequences and how you might play them in a performance context. Watch out next for a video on how to create your own sequences, including more farm-yard sounds!
