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

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

Honored guest and new music pioneer Goldie had some interesting quips about the democratization of electronic music:

Ethan Hein, music educator at NYU’s @musedlab pointed out how useful computer music is in education:

With the recent Ableton purchase of Max for Live developers Cycling74, of course they made an appearance:

And BOTH original Together Boston (#tgthr1) guests, Machine Drum and DJ/Rupture (h/t @BeatReasearch), had interesting talks on the power of process:

While JLin was the first to admit trusting yourself is the first step:

Then, of course, came the real stars of the show, the astonishing now of Loop’s incredible installations and performances:

It seems the closing performance of Nosaj Thing stole the show in the end, perfectly capturing one of the catchphrases born at #LoopBerlin:

The Screen is Your Stage

I have seen no such thing like this before. @nosajthing #loopberlin
