Noise Night at the Willoughby and Baltic

Circuit bending is back at the Willoughby and Baltic!

Noise Night is going to be a general electronic instrument music and noise night, not just circuit bending (you can bet that circuit bending will be a solid part of the event though). It is for anyone who enjoys making strange sounds and music, strange electronic instruments, and for anyone who wants to be around others that make strange sounds, music, and instruments.

We are going to start things off with a quick talk, and then a show and tell. So bring anything interesting you’ve made and want to show off. Then we will turn the irons on and start working on things. Hopefully jam sessions will pop up as well, and people will let others play with their toys.

If you’ve never circuit bent anything before, then this is the perfect time to stop by. We’ll help you turn your toy into an instrument. Even if you’ve been bending for a while, it is always nice to have other perspectives on the possibilities of new toys and instruments.

This is also going to be an ongoing event, every second and fourth Thursday in a month. So this is also to keep me making instruments and sharing with others, and to have an ongoing noise outlet for the general Boston area.

When:
1/8 & 1/22 from 7PM till 9 (maybe later if people are interested), and then every 2nd and 4th Thursday afterwards.
Check the calendar.

Where:
Willougbhy and Baltic Hackerspace
197A Elm St.
Somerville, MA 02144

It is the door to the left of Subway. Look for the W&B sign.

Cost:
Free! This is a public event, so anyone is free to come. Donations are appreciated, and go directly back into buying equipment and parts.
