Hacking Sound (Systems)
The resurgence of a technological Maker Culture is undeniable, and Moogfest is a gathering for all those enthused by new tools for creative expression. This program includes a historical look at the evolution of dub reggae and home-made sound systems, radiating outwards from its native Jamaica. These artists and producers were hardware hackers, much like the creative technologists working on interactive sonic experiences and generative music composition today. Conversations, workshops, and installations will not only explore hardware and physical computing, but also reflect on how the last decade has been transformed by a host of arts-engineering software toolkits like Processing, Arduino, and openFrameworks.
