The Hacked Human Orchestra is a project by MzTEK, Guerilla Science and Kobakant to produce a series of wearable musical designs for workshops, culminating in a audio mix of the Hacked Human Orchestra. Last December we welcomed MzTek for one of their  Hacked Human Orchestra workshops at the Music Hackspace.

Sophie McDonald is a co-founder of MzTEK, she is a media artist, freelance workshop producer, video editor, and educator. Her work includes the online programming platform sketchPatch.

MzTEK provides short courses, workshops, geek-outs and events. Their classes focus on technical training in an arts context, ranging from basic electronics and circuitry to more advanced courses in programming and prototyping. MzTEK is a non-profit organisation based in London with the aim of addressing the imbalance of women artists working in the fields of new media, computer arts, and technology. Among their exciting projects, they’ve recently been invited to manage The Open Data Institute’s data-as-culture art commissions for their launch.
