Music Technology Showcase

April-PosterCome participate in our Music Technology Showcase at The Fusion Factory!

Demos and discussion about new and radical musical instruments and tools from Praxis Guitars and Chris Mandel (Cloudless Rain).

There will be opportunities to interact with the inventors/engineers as well as live performances featuring the new instruments/tools.

Presentations start at 7:00. Our first exhibition will feature a demo of Siren, by Cloudless Rain. Siren is a software-based electronic semi-random music generator which spontaneously creates endless variations of music based on simple user direction. Discussion topics will included the use of random number generators for composition, modular programming, and robot apocalypse.

The second presentation will feature the open source guitars made by Praxis Guitars. These guitar prototypes bring new engineering ideas to further the scope of possibilities for guitarists and use open source hardware and software to unlock new potentials for the future of human – instrument development.
