Having just retired another blog I am reposting this on the Drake Music Website.
On 21st April 2013 Drake Music ran its first hack day in partnership with Furtherfield and Music Hackspace. Set in Furtherfield’s intimate and magical space in the heart of Finsbury Park, the event was attended by 10 hackers. In a focused and intense day, new instruments, code and hardware appeared from nowhere, Max MSP patches, PD patches, iPad Apps, new hardware with custom coded IC’s and Flash based motion sensing instruments.
We ended the event with all present voting for their favourite. Mo @DiogoMoreda was the clear winner with his remarkable breath powered hardware musical instrument, with an admirable second place for Zen @designerzen for his browser based motion sensing instrument (soon to be available for free! – watch this space!)
