Wilderness: Hacked Human Orchestra
We’ve been collaborating with art and technology collective MzTEK to explore the wonderful world of wearable electronics.
On 12 August in the Natures tent at the new and shiny Wilderness festival, we ran a workshop where people got the chance to build and attach electronic musical instruments to their clothes.
After hacking t-shirts with soft circuits, miniature speakers and conductive thread, workshop participants were treated to a personalized recording session with composer Florian Tenant.
We’ll be hosting this event again at Shambala on August 25th – come let us transform your threads into a musical instrument!
This event was sponsored by the Royal Academy of Engineering.
