Sound Hackers is a group for anyone messing about with sound. We share projects, make music and learn about cool devices, techniques and technologies.

The upcoming Sound Hackers evening will include refreshments sponsored by Microchip, and talks, demos and performances from special guests including:

Before and after the talks there will be drinks and snacks and nerding out. Table space, power and wifi will be available, so please bring along your projects and instruments to show off to others. Bleeps and bloops guaranteed.

Sound Hackers is for people interested in any kind of sound hacking at any level: guitar pedal DIYers, live coders, strange musicians, curious newbies, synth module designers, acoustic scientists, music tech lovers, and experimental instrument creators of all genres.

We welcome all sounds and any type of instrument, including analog, digital, acoustic, generative, musical, discordant, modern, ancient, scientific and mystical.

Background to the event and organizer

I’m Helen Leigh and I’ve been part of the DIY instrument communities in both Berlin and London. I live here in Portland now, and I wanted to start something that combines my two favourite sound hacking events in those cities: laid back chats with beers and projects on tables at a Music Tech Stammtisch in Berlin, and short, creative talks and performances at Hackoustic’s bi-monthly events in London.

We are based in the Crowd Supply building up in North East Portland. As well as giving us free space, Crowd Supply are kindly sponsoring drinks and snacks to make the tram, cycle or drive up all the way to the top of Williams more enticing!

NB: We are on the top floor of the big red building. Go up the ramp and straight ahead. Google will take you round the corner to the train tracks but don’t believe it - our entrance is on NE Farragut St.

COVID-19 safety measures

Masks are not required but they are encouraged. Vaccinations required. We have three BlueAir Protect 7470i large space filtration systems in the room and several large windows will be opened for air flow.
