Bring and Byte was a music hackathon weekend made for The Hub UK.

I curated the technical people and generally engineered things with the brilliant Jenny Harris and Julia Payne

It aimed to find ways to ‘fix’ the independent music industry through a mix of hackathon and co-design to help sustain revenue streams , develop younger audiences and increase footfall.

We did this through crowdsourced and self mmanaged bandstand programming with BoomStand, an app for wilfully obscure hipsters Wankr, interactive printed books, RFID audience tracking GigCard and a device for destroying online music and degrading live performances depending on how many people were trying to record the gig on their phones instead of watching the bloody gig
