Event Description

Organized by Synthux Academy, this four-day hackathon brings together students from eight leading academies in exploring the future of electronic musical instrument design. As a participant, you'll work with a team and mentor to design and fabricate a synthesizer based on a surprise collection of microcontrollers, sensors, and electronic components. 

Application to Participate
Space is limited to 30 students. No experience is necessary. Familiarity with programming, electronics, synthesizers, or fabrication technologies is helpful. We'll continue to accept applicants until our final cohort is chosen.

The Synthux Academy was founded on the premise to enable musicians to design and build their own synthesizers and sound art devices. They run physical and online workshops and courses of synth design, electronics, programming, fabrication, and everything in between. There's great reward in designing your own sound, let alone your own instrument.
