I’m excited to announce that all of the soundscapes, remixes and films have now been uploaded, so have a listen and look at the University of Manchester’s cultural wonders in new ways.
The In The Mix Hack Weekend brought together computer programmers, composers and museum staff together to explore the potential of the soundscapes, remix and Manchester Museum data sets to animate collections and exhibitions and visitor experiences in museums and galleries. This ranged from creating laser cut rumble strips of sound waves (from soundscapes) to site-specific sound installations around museums that would give insight into what sounds might be behind the scenes and beyond the physical public space of the gallery or museum. There are more photos in the In The Mix Hack Day Flickr Set
Just to let you know that the In The Mix Hack Weekend has been rescheduled for the beginning of June- more info coming soon.
I’m working with MadLab and a colleague at Manchester Museum, Steve Devine (New Media Officer) to organise ‘In The Mix Hack Weekender’ which will be happening Friday 17-Sunday 19 May! If you are a sound hacker, audio producer, or developer who’s keen to play with Manchester’s richest auditory dataset, then come down! Click here for more information about the event.

In the Mix was featured in this month’s UniLife (The University of Manchester’s monthly magazine) as part of a series of features profiling ‘Investing In Success’ projects. Investing in Success is £1 million initiative to boost staff development at University of Manchester. Read the feature here:
