Handmade Music in NYC 8/29



Announcing another Handmade Music, this Sunday 8/29!

Culturefix, 9 Clinton St., New York, NY 10002
Sunday, August 29
Open Party Event 7-9:30p


Handmade Music is a community get-together, Science Fair, noise-making happening, and party for people making things that make music. We return to NYC on Sunday, August 29 at 7p. Our new Manhattan home is Culturefix, a new electronics boutique, gallery, and tapas bar on the Lower East Side.

This month, we welcome a classically-trained guitar duo using their instruments to play games, an original string-modeling instrument, a sonic dodecahedron sculpture (really), artists using game chips, and more. Last-minute creations are always welcome.


  • Modal Kombat, clasically-trained guitarists playing video games like
    Pong and Mario Kart
  • Smomid, an original, guitar-like modeled instrument
  • Neurohedron, a nonlinear sequencer and dodecahedronal sculpture that
    plays modal music
  • Chip music assembled by Pulsewave NYC, including Square Wail
    (Seattle), DaPantz, Kris Keyser, and AdamGetsAwesome playing Game Boys
    and other handheld instruments for “fat beats with old timey melodies”
    and “dance-punk”
