The second installment of our new night featuring performances, talks, demonstrations, installations and mingling with some of London's top sound artists, builders, hackers and educators. The last one sold out fast so make sure you get your tickets early!
There'll be interactive installations, unique instruments to play on and everyone will get to walk away with their own self-built instrument!

Stephen will present work-in-progress from ongoing research & development residency at St Augustine’s Tower in Hackney with sound collective Breathing Space. He has hacked the 400 year old clock in the tower with contact mics and Max to create a composition/sound installation. He will also present a short performance with tick, metal and voice, inspired by the explorations of the residency.
Nick Murray grew up in London, where his body still resides.
Currently a composer and performer, Nick’s work explores communication loss through doctored instruments and redundant technology. For Hackoustic, he will present a variety of altered cassette devices, using samples and created sounds to build a short soundscape
Tim Yates, Director for Hackoustic, will be presenting his Curio installation, an exploration of the sounds of common objects using an innovative and accessible system of sensors and solenoids to play and strike noise making objects.
Robert is a sound artist. He will be presenting his installation The Weather Machine; an interactive installation using old Marconi machinery. The original knobs and dials now control an interactive weather soundscape spanning a range of weather conditions.
Adrian will be presenting his work with hacked turntable and video.
