Victor playing with the textile-input mixer.
It’s hard to believe, but we have reached the milestone of our 50th Open Lab! Come and celebrate with us as we reflect on the first one and a half years of IIL.
Last week the lab visited Blönduós Textile Center, where Sophie Skach led the team in creating all kinds of interesting etextiles prototypes. Sophie will share more about what they got up to.
We’re also delighted to host the Skerpla course students from LHI. Together, we’ve spent the past three months building new instruments and creating original compositions. The participants will share their experiences in composing music through instrument building, and demo their original creations.
After the traditional presentations, from 5 to 7PM we will continue to celebrate with refreshments and with our first-ever Open Mixer event! Open Mixer is in a literal sense a mixing desk that you can come and plug any instrument into. This is an opportunity for musicians of all backgrounds to come together and jam with their own instruments, or to try out the instruments we have been developing at the Lab. Open Mixer will be taking place a few times per month – if you want to participate get in touch, or just show up!
