Music Hackathon, Spor festival, Århus


May 9th, Århus, Denmark

Music Hackathon at SPOR festival 2014 will be an opportunity for musicians, engineers, artists, scientists, composers -- and anyone interested in taking music apart and reassembling it -- to share ideas and collaborate on rapidly making new art, research, or tools.

We will come up with new project ideas and develop them to completion over 7 hours, then present and/or perform our work at 6pm.
Guest composer and engineer Jonathan Marmor will provide guidance and give examples of previous successful "Music Hacks."

Only a desire to make new art with sound (and possibly technology) is required. People with any combination and level of skills in music, art, and technology are welcome. Come with ideas and whatever equipment you might need to realize them (computers, instruments, amps, mics, audio interfaces, electronics parts, glue, etc).

10.00 Opening remarks and presentation of a few music hacks from past events by Jonathan Marmor
10.15 Talk by Lone Kofoed Hansen 'Hacking as an artistic and possibly tactical practice'.
The purpose of this brief talk is to introduce to projects using hacking of hard- and software as an artistic practice, thus exploring the creative possibilities of using technologies in different ways than was originally intended.
10.30 Share ideas, brainstorm, form teams
11.00 Make art! (or do research, or make software, or build something, etc)
12.00 Lunch on your own
13.00 Continue making stuff
17.00 Public presentation and performances of what we came up with

SPOR will provide coffee, drinks and snacks.
Participating is free and spots are limited to 40 attendees.
