Handmademusicdecember

Heads up, the next Handmade Music meet-up will happen Thursday of next week @ 3rd Ward in Brooklyn. This time we’ve even got someone to bring the drinks! Eminent Eventmaster Peter Kirn of CDM writes up the details –

Handmade Music is now a monthly affair at the wonderful 3rd Ward in Brooklyn, and increasingly, I want to work on adding an online, virtual component for the rest of the world to share. That means we’ll be looking for new works to share. The setup is this: for people in-person, we’re looking for installations, short performances, or projects you’d like to show off informally, science fair-style. Projects don’t have to be completed finished – in fact, this is a great way to get feedback on something you’re working on (and we certainly welcome repeat presentations as you make more progress, especially now that we’re monthly). We also welcome visual and audiovisual projects; we’ll have a projector onsite. (You’ll need to share if you can’t bring your own projector, but we can give you at least a few minutes of projection time.)

New for January 15’s event:

  • Free beer, sponsored by Pabst Blue Ribbon, plus our usual refreshments
  • DIY TV: Make Magazine screen music projects from their new Make: television, produced with Twin Cities Public Television and American Public Television, with a talk by Make’s Phil Torrone
  • Better weather? (hopefully) no torrential freezing downpours like our debut last month (see, and you folks in other parts of the world were jealous…)

Thanks to everyone who persevered the haul through crappy weather last time. We’ve got an awesome space at 3rd Ward to showcase your work – head over to CDM to submit projects – Handmade Music 1/15/09 Call for Works
