The evening is a gathering of inventors of circuit-bent toys, custom software and patches, interactive digital & visual instruments, custom electronics, electricity-powered noisemakers, DIY robots and new acoustic instruments. And itâ€™s open to everyone from hard-core hackers & newcomers to music lovers who want to learn about the DIY music scene.
