Learn about music technology from some of the talented women from MMMMAVEN — friends, partners, alumnae, and current students.

This event will feature DJ and live performances, gear demos, Q&As, and general discussions.

Generations of girls have grown up believing technology is not designed for them. Times are a-changing, but for many women that ingrained idea is still true. We want to feature some of our graduates and have them tell you their story and show off their skills.

There will be plenty of awesome music, networking opportunities, refreshments, and fun!

Performances by: Azurely, BEYUN, Dissoule, abco, Guzzalina, Nara DJ, Jayana, Musicisart, C8, DJ Machi

Inside the Livecoding Algorave Movement

You want the future of music? Here’s one idea. They call it Algorave (via CDM)

“You can’t really separate music from community.”

“I see the same motivation behind wiring and re-wiring a modular synthesizer and modifying live code while it runs.”

“I like the folk music model where people borrow tunes from each other all the time. Free/open source music fits into that nicely.”

A Soundtrack for Spiritual Awakening

Jon Hopkins makes gentle music with hidden depths.

Celebrated music writer Kelefa Sanneh reviews Jon Hopkins new album Singularity for the New Yorker. Mr. Hopkins was the first artist we collaborated on bringing to Boston five years ago.

[Singularity] is both the gentlest and the most epic of Hopkins’s career. — Kelefa Sanneh

Sanneh talks about Hopkins‘ early on being “seduced by the Roland TB-303,” how Singularity signaled his transition from Logic into Ableton, and which Spotify playlists he comes up on.

As an inspiration for our school, and for many of our students, Hopkins’ release is something to celebrate to be sure. After the 6 years and 7 months (!!) since we brought the acclaimed producer to Great Scott, we’re happy to see him remain

one of the most celebrated musicians of his generation

and be

one of music’s great minds operating in peak form.
