It's that time of year again - log fires burning, Christmas pudding in the oven and rampant commercialism taking over your consciousness. Give yourself a break from the madness and join us at our annual Christmas party!

We have an incredible lineup - absolutely not to be missed.

Robert Thomas

Robert is a composer and technologist who's worked with Massive Attack, Hans Zimmer and the Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra among many others.  He'll be talking about adaptive systems, algorithmic, generative, stochastic composition, procedural generation and machine learning/artificial intelligence and sharing his experience of working on some of the largest and most exciting projects out there.

Mammoth Beat Organ

Graham Dunning and Sam Underwood will demoing their two-player, semi-autonomous mechanical musical contraption the Mammoth Beat Organ for the first time in London. Check out this How Do They Make It !? video for a preview of this amazing machine. Sam and Graham will also be running a workshop in the afternoon where you'll have a chance to hack the organ for yourself. Tickets for that will be released soon so keep your eyes on our social channels.

Alessia Milo

Alessia will present her project Aural Fabric fresh from Ars Electronica 2018. The installation is an interactive textile map that reveals the sonic character of the architectural and natural elements encountered during a soundwalk of Greenwich, London.

Andrew Hockey

Andrew will be premiering his brand new and interactive Water Bowl Piano. Some of you may remember his installation Kinetic Tones from previous Hackoustic events and we can't wait to see his latest work!


  • The Hackoustic Orchestra will make it's return - expect to be astonished by a musical extravaganza the like of which has never been seen :)
  • Instrument building with Vulpestruments and Tim Yates
  • The wonderful #BarrysLounge, our resident DJ and Design Thinker!
