Electric Generation: The 3rd Annual Moog Hackathon at Georgia Tech

Today's students will engineer our future.

The raw potential of the next generation was on full display this month at the third annual Moog Hackathon at Georgia Tech's School of Music. Students gathered from Atlanta, GA, and beyond to build their own unique musical devices designed around modifying Moog Werkstatt-01s.

Moog engineer Chris Howe initiated everyone by leading an extended workshop, which covered the basics of subtractive synthesis, building a Werkstatt, and how to hack it (the Werkstatt, that is). The following 48 hours consisted of intensive hacking—dreaming up and designing, soldering and splicing, and the bleeps, bloops, and beats of newly-birthed sonic experiments. 

We're proud of and inspired by the fearless innovation and humble collaboration we saw at the Hackathon. Go to Georgia Tech's website to get the full story, including a gallery of images and details on the winning creations.
