Description: What does a chess game sound like? This deep question lead to this experimental application, which converts PGN chess notation into musical notation, creating sounds live via real-time software synthesis and sequencing. It applies music theory concepts (which needs more elaboration).

Just a quick note on how to get the Logitech M720 detected and paired under Debian Stretch. According to Logitech specs, this mouse uses “smart bluetooth”, meaning it’s a low enery device. As the mouse was not detected via blueman graphical interface, some steps were neccessary to get the mouse discovered.
First make sure your bluetooth adapter is running properly. Then install blueman package via apt.
open a shell and start a LE-device scan: sudo hcitool lescan
this will get the mouse detected in the following scan:
open a second shell and run: bluetoothctl scan on pair XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX connect XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX trust XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX

Well, actually it turned out the PCB was a bit too large to fit in the Altoids so I sanded down the edges of the PCB almost up to the screwholes. Of cause you have to pay attention not to destroy any circuits or components.
To isolate the board from the metal case to prevent shortening components I put a plastic card at the bottom of the tin.
