Tech it out! Handmade Music Night at 3rd Ward, 7/16

So this month's handmade music extravaganza is special because it features the work of some of my fellow ITPers! The handmade party returns this Thursday with a science-fair-style showcase of new creations in music making.

Along with free PBR while it lasts, 3rd Ward will showcase the latest high-tech inventions for musicians, complete with demos, an open lab to meet the creators, and live musical performances...Believe me, you won't want to miss this.

Sequence everything: CRUDBOX / STEVEN LITT

The CrudBox is an original hardware step sequencer in a briefcase, which plugs into and sequences everything from cassette decks to power tools and turns them into musical patterns.

Looping hardware: LOOOP-R / RUI PEREIRA

Looop-R is a musical, visual, hardware, software instrument.

Shake the beats: EGGBEATER / TED HAYES

This wireless, egg-shaped controller lets you mash loops, control filters, and play music using live gestures.


Live laptop fans, take note: the commercially-available Akai APC40 Ableton Live controller warped to make new musical performances possible.
