Meet a community of artists and innovators since 2011

The Music Hackspace was founded in 2011 by Jean-Baptiste Thiebaut, after attending several Music Hackday hackathons, where engineers, artists and companies would collaborate to build innovative music experiences. The Music Hackspace started with weekly meet-ups at the London Hackspace where participants could present and discuss their projects to an engaged audience with a set of common interests: sound, music, creativity and technology. The Music Hackspace’s mission is to foster a community of innovating artists, entrepreneurs and hobbyists eager to build new technologies for music production and interaction.

From 2017 to 2019, the Music Hackspace was co-directed by Tadeo Lopez-Sendon and Susanna Garcia, who developed a regular programme of artist-led workshops, talks, residencies and a talent development programme during a three year residency at Somerset House Studios (2017-19).

The Music Hackspace is now hosted by the Embodied Audio Visual Interaction group at Goldsmiths University.

Music Hackspace has been supported by funding from the National Lottery through Arts Council England, Sound and Music, Esmée Fairbairn Foundation and LimeWharf.
