We are very excited to announce our selected artists to participate in an Embedded Composer in Residence programme at the Music Hackspace, made in partnership with Sound and Music.

We are thrilled to welcome sound artist Jack James into our organisation, to develop his projects and engage with the Music Hackspace community for the next 6 months as part of the programme.

Through the residency, Jack James will collaborate with the Music Hackspace community and the wider public to explore the implicit meaning and unearthed potentials in objects created to serve as consumptive rather than productive devices.

In the presentation Jack will introduce his proposed project with more depth; it will be an excellent opportunity for the community to explore engaging with the residency.
