An evening of performances, talks, demonstrations, installations and mingling with some of London’s top sound artists, builders, hackers and educators. This time we’ve got acoustic circuit bending, Memory Boxes to help people with dementia, levitation and manipulation of objects with sound, didgeridoos made out of toilet rolls and a completely new experimental system for mixing audio. You’ll also have the chance to make your very own instrument for yourself! This is the third in the series, and the last two have been absolutely fantastic. Don’t miss this one – you won’t be disappointed!
Chloe is a designer, maker, inventor and social entrepreneur based in Bristol and London. She founded Studio Meineck in 2016 and their work sits between the worlds of technology, craft, design and art, and focuses on inclusive design processes in order to develop products with a social purpose. Chloe will be presenting her project the Music Memory Box which uses sound and technology to help people living with dementia and their loved ones to reminiscence more effectively. This can help them to improve their emotional well-being and communication skills. A wonderful use of technology to enhance people’s lives.
