Embedded: Music Hackspace
The Music Hackspace was founded in 2011 as a community of artists, engineers, and entrepreneurs passionate about music and technology, and as a place to share and develop ideas, knowledge, technologies, processes and aesthetics about music and audio.
The main activities consist of regular seminars, workshops, performances and residencies. Our mission is to support the development of innovative projects in a dynamic and friendly atmosphere. We are located at the epicentre of our active community in Regents Canal next to Broadway Market, where we meet every Thursday.
