Time for a belated report on the second Handmade Music: Minneapolis aka HMMM #2.
We had another fun event. Many people made Ed Vogel’s cookie box guitars and Nick H passed out some contact mics so people could plug in their creations. Nick also brought all of his gear and jammed with a couple other attendees. Roger W had some technical difficulties with his instrument of choice, but pulled some other stuff together and made some good noise with Nick. He was even using some samples from the recordings done at the previous HMMM. Other highlights: Mike C’s projects including a rack mountable Atari Punk Console and sequencer, Alex D’s calculator keypad synth and Ed’s cool little hacked boom box amp. I also demonstrated my MIDI sequenced VidiSynth seen above.
Plans have begun for HMMM #3 which will be on Saturday, May 1st (change of date to accommodate Alex D). Please let me know if you have anything you would like to contribute or have any other ideas.
