Hackoustic

‘All the sounds are out there … we just need to find them’

Hackoustic are workshops held at the London Hackspace – located at the heart of London’s East end. The objective is to explore the physicality of sound, using a wider scope of media and practices. We thrive to redefine the meaning of the traditional instrument, by integrating 21st century technologies, modern philosophy of design, an understanding of vibration and a realisation of the timbral and tonal limitations of current traditional electronic and acoustic instruments.

Attending the workshops is free of charge, and with increasing amount of dedicated members, a certain level of trust arises. It opens opportunities for collaborative research, projects whilst learning through discovery. In such heavily mathematical and theory-based field, it is necessary to develop fundamental understanding through practical and hands-on experience with the help of others. It paves the way for a cross-disciplinary journey that is not solely constricted to the field of acoustics, but rather across a multitude of practices such as Art, Engineering, Philosophy and Design.

Join us on this adventure to explore this world of vibrations!
