TONIGHT, NYC! Handmade Music is an evening of original creations for music making, open to the creative minds of the New York area. It’s equal parts party, show-and-tell, performance, and science fair, open to whatever oddball software and hardware people want to bring, complete or not. Some come with projects, others just to hear and see unusual new instruments, from software to game systems to homemade electronic instruments.
Each installment brings plenty of surprises, but appearances confirmed
for this one include:
- A featured performance by Richard Lainhart, a renowned electronic improviser and innovator
- Seven-foot tall “Suburbanite” aka “60 Switches of Fury”, a music controller by Eric Johnson
- The Monome, a minimalist open-source hardware controller with grids of buttons
- A fluid musical instrument controller entirely by webcam, by Peter Kirn
- Lots of other things that may just appear
The event is a convergence of the music community/blog createdigitalmusic.com, the kings and queens of all things DIY at Make Magazine and makezine.com, and handmade marketplace Etsy.com. The event is hosted at Brooklyn’s community workshop, Etsy Labs.
