The Experimental Musical Instrument Workshop was a big success last Spring. This year, we will be holding "build week" during IAP. We will meet, brainstorm, build, play, and record our experimental musical instruments with the guest artists (TBA).

Last year's guest artists were John Zorn, Tan Dun and Evan Ziporyn. We will once again record and film the workshop. Documentary footage from last year is available on the workshop website.

Have you always had a penchant for tinkering with gadgets and hacking electronics? Interested in playing with mobile technology and sensors?

If so, please consider joining the reknowned MIT Wearable Computing Group for our annual Hackfest 2005. You will have a chance to play with and develop applications for MIThril, our next-generation distributed wearable computing platform. Topics include embedded system design, sensing and data acquisition, and real-time data streaming and context classification. You will be asked to take part in a group project using the technology to develop a practical application using our infrastructure, TBD.
