Due to the ongoing pandemic, all performance dates are subject to change.
An interdisciplinary group of twenty artists, performers, scientists, developers, and experimenters from various areas of research and practice will be invited to participate in the first Athenian edition of the famed MusicMakers HackLab. An integral part of CTM Festival since 2013, the MusicMakers Hacklab provides a unique platform for collaboration, knowledge exchange, and inspiration, allowing practitioners from a range of disciplines to create and play. Together they discover new ways of exploring the past, current, and future potentials that lie in interfacing music with technology and other fields of practice. Each edition of the Hacklab creates a space for collective work and skill sharing, through which participants attempt together what is inconceivable alone.
Inspired by the concept of *Chronotopia, the participants of the Athens Hacklab will be encouraged – and challenged – to experiment with new and old media, forms, and practices to put tradition in dialogue with contemporary knowledge. Their spontaneous collaboration takes place both on- and offstage, culminating in performances of their experimentation in front of a live audience at Hall B of Peiraios 260 on Saturday 4 July at 21:00.
