Original post from yesterday
Written on iPhone, forgive typos and delayed hyperlinking, haven’t used this interface before and it’s much harder (for me at any rate) to multitask on a phone than it is on a laptop.
I heard about this via working at QMUL, through an email from the Centre for Digital Music (C4DM) who I now think of as my Social Committee, as they regularly supply me with news of fascinating events.
I’ll write more about the event later but wanted to tell people who might be interested about tomorrow’s event – there’s a music hack for children and young people aged 8-16 and no experience is needed. It’ll involve creating new instruments – there’s an opportunity to perform as well. It’s all taking place at at LSO St Luke’s on Old Street (I took the 43 bus from London Bridge to that lovely redbrick building and then walked), other journeys available. The hack stuff takes place in the venue cafe downstairs and there are talks and performances in the main room on the ground floor.
Look on Twitter for #MTFLondon, there’s a website http://www.musictechfest.org/ with basic info and tickets http://londonsymphonyorchestra.mobi/?evnt=show&id=780&PHPSESSID=770ibmf1mcn2kok1ug2cb8jo14 and one with some approximation of timings http://musictechfest.tumblr.com/post/96165626111/full-line-up-for-music-tech-fest-london. Today’s been fantastic!
Oh and search for info about Oscilla – it’s lovely 🙂
Let’s see if pics upload…
