We’re excited to announce our first Hackoustic Presents of 2018 with an incredible lineup of performances, installations and presentations. We have the wonderful Gouda Dirzyte performing with hand-made electro-acoustic instruments, and the versatile and fascinating Ana Berkenhoff presenting instruments she’s made with Yuri Landmann, along with her own work. We also have a presentation by our Director Tim Yates on work he’s been doing at Drake Music, a charity working in music, disability and technology, in helping to develop open-source accessible instruments for non-techie workshop leaders and teachers to be able to use cheaply and easily.
There’ll also be two exciting installations, this time from Gawain Hewitt who’ll be bringing a selection of his recent pieces for you to try out including a singing plant, a sonic suitcase and a recording stethoscope. Our Creative Director Tom Fox will also show for the first time ever the Proximity Mixer Jacket, a wearable version of his Vulpestruments installation, made in collaboration with Nick Murray. The jacket will have hidden audio signals running through the fabric that the wearer will explore and mix their own audio compositions through the magic of physics!
No Hackoustic event would be complete without our resident and most wonderful DJ #BarrysLounge spinning discs for us. There’ll also be a small instrument building workshop so you have something to take home with you!
