Monthly Music Hackathon NYC is a monthly all-day event for musicians and engineers to create new music-related projects from scratch, develop them all day on a Saturday, then present the results to the public in the evening.
This month, we're focusing on sound art installations. Since it's near Halloween and we'll be in the creepy Woolworth building, we're assuming it will be haunted.
This is a rare opportunity to have access to the historic gothic Woolworth Building in lower Manhattan. Control Group will be making an assortment of sensors available and there will be many nooks and crannies in which to build some sort of noise making environment or sculpture or show.
The night before the hacking, we'll have a tour of the spaces, an intro to the sensors and other equipment available, and an opportunity to share ideas, find collaborators, and talk about equipment you're bringing and would be willing to share.
If you will be hacking together a sound art installation (or something like that), then you're in the right place to RSVP.
If you want to attend the opening reception and hear about the hacks that were built, but not make a hack, RSVP here: http://hauntedwoolworth.eventbrite.com/. (If you are hacking there is no need to rsvp for the reception.)
** Registration is extremely limited so please only RSVP if you intend to come, and let us know if your plans change. ***
