Music Hackspace has announced it has moved location from Bethnal Green to become resident within the artist community at Somerset House Studios in Central London.

A new programme of events has been unveiled, kiccking off on Monday March 27 with talks from Antònia Folguera of Sonar+D and Look Mum No Computer, who will be demoing his new Synth Bike version 3. Check out footage of version 2 here.

The following months will see a variety of talks and workshops around music and technology. Highlights come from software workshops from the likes of Shelly Knotts and Alex Mclean. Alex AKA Yaxu will be running a class on TidalCycles, the algorithmic composition and performance tool he designed and composes with. Check out our feature on Algorave here.

Continuing this theme, Shelly Knotts will be leading a workshop on Supercollider, an open source and highly open ended live code environment. Music Hackspace will also host artist talks from Chagall, Bishi and others, as well as modular synth workshops from Befaco and Rebel Technology.

In its own words, Music Hackspace is "a platform for experimenting and interacting with sound and technology".

Writing about plans for the new location on its website, Music Hackspace wrote: "We incorporate diverse methodologies and aim to create an open playground and exchange of ideas and sounds that embraces new and old technologies. Newly available open source platforms, both hardware and software, are granting far wider accessibility to new interactions with music and audio than has not been possible before.

"It’s with these technologies that we base our programme of workshops, artist talks and meetups, and hope to encourage people of all backgrounds and skill levels to create and engage with music in previously unrealised ways."
