Last Sunday of each month. So next one is on:
Sun 31st August 7pm at The London Hackspace
Good News: A quick re-arrangement, now we have Gervais Currie - An instrument repair expert from Portobello Music who is going to bring few instruments, and talk us through pickup systems currently used! - once in a lifetime opportunity!
- Inspired by our last meetup with Tom Fox (see 27th July Post), We’ve been recently enamoured with Toroid Transformers and how they could be used as a pickup for some kind of a Diddley-Bow based instrument. Plus, They are aesthetically pleasing and could be interesting to explore. So we’re going to bring many coils and have a play with these.
- We have also been recently fascinated by saw blades, and we have many available to demonstrate the truly breathtaking harmonics they produce. In fact, you can hear some of those recordings in our Soundcloud. So this may come up in our discussions, and reasons why they sound the way they do.
- The usual show and tell. If you’re coming down, we welcome work in progress, introductions and discussions about a topic that has been boggling your mind. It is most probably you’ll find someone around the hackspace (if not among us) with knowledge of this subject.
Any queries, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks for everyone who attended, and it is great to see some new faces. This meetup was about combining efforts from the dedicated attendees! We’re planning to have a ‘Make day’ on the 13th July because it is apparent that there is little time for this during the normal meetup times. Click here for a brief summary.
Last meeting on Sun 25th marks one of our most successful meetings yet. It was overwhelming to witness such great attendance, with such a variety of people from different practices, ranging from visual artists and musicians to engineers and product designers. Below is an excerpt of the discussions that took place.
All the sounds are out there, we just need to find them
