Upcoming: SuperBooth, Imperial CDT, Anvil Hack III

Posted in Events

We are excited to be participating in three events next week; the Superbooth modular synthesizer trade show in Berlin (20-22 April), the Imperial College London CDT Festival of Science (21 April), and the Anvil Hack creative computing hackathon at Goldsmiths University of London (22-23 April).

Bela Booth and DIY Workshop at Superbooth, Berlin

We have for a long time been excited about the possibilities of combining Bela with modular synthesizers. One year ago we created this demo of combining Bela with the Doepfer Dark Energy II which was the focus of this post:

This year we are taking things a step further by exhibiting Bela at Superbooth! We are extremely excited to meet the makers and players of this community, and to share an exclusive preview of an experimental prototype for a limited edition Bela Eurorack Modular kit! If you are attending, please drop by our booth or get in touch ! Additionally, Bela’s Dr. Andrew McPherson will be exhibiting the TouchKeys project at the booth next door (and will be premiering some new demos…).

We are also running a hands-on workshop to introduce audio programming and instrument design with Bela, from 11:00 - 15:00 on Friday 21 April. We hope to see you there!

Bela Exhibit at Imperial CDT Festival of Science

The Bela team will be present at the CDT Festival of Science hosted by Imperial College London, which this year is themed around “Science and Art - Exploring Creativity”. We will be bringing along demos and kits for people to explore their creativity with! Additionally, our exhibit will include TouchKeys and a live installation of the Magnetic Resonator Piano ! Get in touch if you are attending!

Bela Sponsoring Anvil Hack III, Goldsmiths

Finally, we are very pleased to be able to say we are sponsoring Anvil Hack III hosted by Hacksmiths ( Goldsmiths tech society). We will be bringing Bela kits for people to use in their projects, and offering mentorship throughout the event for all of your low latency, real-time, embedded audio and sensor processing. Anvil Hack is “focussed on the creative applications of technology taking place at a centre of creative computing research”. As of writing, there are still free tickets available!
