Hackoustic Presents at Iklectik (May 2017)

This past Bank Holiday weekend was truly interesting, mainly because of this event I attended and photographed on Saturday. It was Hackoustic's third of this kind and it offered audiences a cool, relaxed evening of performances, talks, demonstrations and sound installations featuring designer Chloe Meineck, researcher Diego Baresch, instrument builder Dan Wilson and artist Rodrigo Viterbo.

Organised by sound artists Tim Yates and Tom Fox, the driving forces between Hackoustic.org, and hosted by Iklectik, an alternative art performance space, the event gave attendants the chance to mingle with some of London's top sound artists, instrument builders, hackers and educators. 

We had music, there were drinks and socialising, an intimate atmosphere and believe it or not, a resident artist cat too. And even with the dim, challenging lighting for professional photography I thoroughly enjoyed it, and my image highlights went straight into a slideshow video this time, so hope you enjoy!

In case you're unfamiliar with their organisation, Hackoustic is a hacking group dedicated to exploring acoustics and instrument building who run a host of different types of events related to acoustic hacking, including festivals, workshops and talks. And if you wish to know more about them, check out their video - you'll get some nice insights into their passion and work. I personally look forward to more event photography and Hackoustic collaborations around London, so hopefully I'll be capturing more of you too!
