Invited artists hobbyists and makers show and tell self made, developed and hacked devices for playing sound and music on Saturday day and evening in a free trade fair/market style setting at STATIC.
Come and play with the artists wares and see key lunchtime and evening show-offs and performances with food and drink available at the lovely STATIC bar and café.

There is an emerging & developing sector and a growing scene of artists, hobbyists and makers in the UK experimenting with electronics and DIY interaction design often beyond multimedia & music academia and crossing over into sound art, new music and the moving image.
