The main goal of MusicHackDay is to explore and build the next generation of music applications. It’s a full weekend of hacking in which participants will conceptualize, create and present their projects. Music + software + hardware + art + the web. Anything goes as long as it’s music related.
STEIM’s 2-day CrackleHack workshop will take place during MusicHackDay. Daniel Schorno and Byungjun Kwon will assist participants in assembling and hacking the original Cracklebox or use Arduino to turn the analog Cracklebox into a digital soundmachine, using the touch pads of old crackle PCBs to control sounds programmed and generated in Arduino.
