Maker Zone

The Brick Box at the Ivar Theatre hosts the Maker Zone: a space for collaboration and invention, where we’ve invited instrument-builders, researchers, musicians and visual artists to work together with you to create something new. It’s an embodiment of our belief that the most exciting developments in music come from inter-disciplinary experiments, and a fun place to hang out besides. Drop in and participate in an extended project exploring circuit-bending, data sonification or instrument design; or just watch, listen and learn from what participants have been up to. Each day on the Maker Zone stage there will be a series of Makers’ Lightning Talks at 4:00pm and a presentation of the project results at 7:00pm.

Small Group Jams

Loop has two dedicated spaces for the creation of spontaneous music: the historic Tracking Rooms of EastWest Studios, and the unique environment of Ivar Optic Shift, where we've set up an array of electronic and acoustic instruments. Every evening of the summit, from 8-11pm we're turning them over to you. It's an opportunity to express yourself, but also to collaborate; in each Small Group Jam, you'll meet other music-makers who've also signed up for the session, each with their own unique abilities, and their own take on playing and producing. What will you create together? Sign-ups are available only on the day of the session, via Sched, and it's strictly first come, first served.
