The Music Hackspace was founded in 2011 by Jean-Baptiste Thiebaut,after attending several Music Hackday hackathons, where engineers, artists andcompanies would collaborate to build innovative music experiences. The MusicHackspace started with weekly meet-ups at the London Hackspace whereparticipants could present and discuss their projects to an engaged audiencewith a set of common interests: sound, music, creativity and technology. TheMusic Hackspace’s mission is to foster a community of innovating artists,entrepreneurs and hobbyists eager to build new technologies for musicproduction and interaction. https://musichackspace.org/
