Music Hackspace: Making Music With Lights
This 2-day workshop intertwines practice (musical and performative), theory
(historical context and aesthetics) and technique (electronics). It
culminates with a performance and a composition.

“xname” is an interdisciplinary artist born in Milan and based in London. She makes interactive installations and live performances. Made of self built electronics, lines of code, and other inert matter (noise, dust), her alchemic constructions often contain a live element, something that has to happen, yet unpredictable.
Her live compositions transform light and other electromagnetic frequencies in sound waves through self built synthetisers and complex semi chaotic machines. The result is a hypnotic spectacle dominated by industrial and noise-techno frequencies.
She is currently associated with the Augmented Instruments Laboratory at Queen Mary University where she is developing electronic musical instruments within the Antennas & Electromagnetics Group. She is also the founder of Nebularosa, a record label promoting electronic music that challenges the established modes of music production.
