Handmade Electronic Music Night, NI Science Festival.

I really must get better at keeping this blog up to date with cool happenings. There’ll be more stuff on it soon, I promise!

The inaugural NI Science Festival run for 11 days between 19th February – 1st March 2015 and offers a stimulating and wide range of events focusing on the wonders of science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

During the day the festival will present a whole host of workshops, talks and interactive activities for young people, parents and schools. In the evening the festival will come alive with an eclectic mix of scientific debates, talks, theatre, comedy, music and film for adults.

On February 28th, Maker present a night of handmade music in The Black Box, Hill Street in Belfast.

What happens when the musician is also an engineer? The creative use of technology has been a driving force for innovation in art and music since the dawn of the 20th century. From the Theremin to the modern digital synthesiser, the application of technology has created sounds that have become embedded in our cultural landscape.

By manipulating the physical materials and electronics involved in music production, the artist has unprecedented control over their instruments’ timbre and the music they produce.
Featuring performances by Ed Devane (Limerick), Mischa Grae AKA Infotoxin (Belfast), plus guests. Visuals provided by Barry Cullen (Belfast)

This event is suitable for those aged over 18, and will cost you only £8 to attend. Sure why wouldn’t you?!

_maker was founded in march 2012 by Bryan Dunphy, Colin Maher and Thom Conaty with the mission of showing the world that electronics is practical, fun, and not nearly as complicated and inaccessible as some bad experiences from our school days may have made us think. We believe that by teaching DIY electronics through structured, music based projects and contextualising the theory through these projects, learning DIY electronics can be a fun and rewarding experience. Almost as important, is the freedom that DIY electronics provides the electronic musician, allowing to sculpt their own sonic palette. Through an understanding of the underlying electronic principles, musicians can modify their equipment to their own tastes, which means no more boring, off-the-shelf tones! Lastly, knowing how to make your own electronic equipment from kits can save you a lot of money versus the cost of retail products. All you need is the kit and a soldering iron.
