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?!
