Handmade Music in NYC is this Sunday:

Handmade Music is part party, part science fair. Come meet people who make things that make music.

This month:

  • A duo of classical guitarists who play video games with their instruments
  • A project that sequences beats as you play a game of checkers
  • Chip music on Game Boy
  • Surf rock meets speed metal on glockenspiel, Casio, drums, bass


The official launch party for the MeeBlip, new, affordable open source synth hardware for everyone

Come at 4:30 pm for a hands-on Q+A with artists. See game controllers used for music, and meet the MeeBlip synthesizer in its first public appearance. Bring questions; newcomers welcome!

Stay for 7:00 pm as artists perform and demo their work.

Enjoy drinks and the tasty tapas for purchase all night long from Culturefix’s awesome bar – the stuff that has NYC press raving – and shop their electronics boutique.
