The MusicMakers Hacklab is a weeklong open, collaborative laboratory hosted by Peter Kirn of Create Digital Music and musician and noise artist Ewa Justka. 

The Hacklab engages in producing cross-cultural hybrids that imagine future topographies of sound and music performance through its "Future Rituals" theme, re-educating our electronic selves in the potentials of near and distant traditions, systems of musical representation and structure, and performance techniques. The theme for experimentation is a kind of ethnomusicology for machines.

The Hacklab celebrates its 3rd edition within the CTM Festival at the CTM 2016 Seismographic Sounds Exhibition opening, with special performances by this year's invited host Ewa Justka, Peter Kirn and OMMA.
