The MusicMakers Hacklab, conceived in collaboration with Create Digital Music is an open, collaborative environment in which participants can learn about new technologies and get their hands on making their own musical inventions.
19:00 As part of the Opening event
Science Fiction Children present their oversized robotic, "real-world" 808 drum machine.
“Let’s get mechanical!” Science Fiction Children created the first drum robot that reproduces the drum sounds of the 80s – in the material world – with the intention of doing electronic music with mechanical equipment. A retro futuristic journey: Three sound gadgeteers and their giant drum robot MR-808. The consequential Robot Elektro Performance gives an inside look in the state of the art robot music scene. And wants to move you feet, of course.
