Handmade Music this Sunday in NYC


It’s that time of the month again folks, great event this Sunday in NYC: Handmade Music! Peter Kirn writes:

We promise music you can dance to, music you can’t, and tapas (at least in NYC).

And on October 10, a little secret will finally be revealed to Manhattan and the world.

If you’re a citizen of The Internet, we’ve got lots of sounds and creations to explore here on The Web from the comfort of Your Home – scroll on below. There are even great projects you can build anywhere in the world.

For New Yorkers, the lineup on Sunday:

  • Immersive music made with game engines, featuring foci + loci (Tamara Yadao + Chris Burke) doing strange and wonderful things with the likes of Halo and Little Bit Planet.
  • Drone labs and analog light synths by master electronic sonic maker Peter Edwards, Casperelectronics.
  • Classical music on Casio VL-Tone in a cameo by the amazing Annabelle Cazes.
  • Chip music by PULSEWAVE, hosted by Peter Swimm.
  • Make + trade handmade CDs (see our separate article). Bring your music or Creative Commons-licensed / public domain mixes.
  • A surprise. Or more. At least one.

October 10, completely free
4pm, FREE workshop on handmade music mixes – RSVP | Facebook
7-11pm, party, live music performances, general noisemaking (Facebook)

Presented by CULTUREfix, our new favorite home on the Lower East Side, complete with fantastic tapas, drinks, and drool-worthy electronics (map)
