Join us for the October 2019 edition of Maker Monday, our monthly slice of inspiration from the creative and tech worlds.
As always, we will keep the inspiration flowing, the first drink is on us as is the food.
Vicky is a sound and electronic media artist working with sound sculpture, DIY electronics and generative technologies. She performs and exhibits in the UK and internationally with projects MATERIALITY and Noise Orchestra. Interested in the dynamic of art, technology and society she has been artist in resident at National Science & Media Museum, collaborated with the National Graphene Institute to create (the first?) graphene musical interface for electronic music and is a Creative Associate for Future Everything. This winter she has been awarded the UK-Russia Year of Music grant from British Council to research machine learning and music for new project – AURA MACHINE.
For Maker Monday, Vicky will share the artistic process behind MATERIALITY and building Noise machines that translate light into sound.

Catherine has over twenty years’ experience in engineering and technology. From military RADAR and precision measurement to installing and servicing digital CCTV systems. It was in developing exhibits at the Science Museum in London that she found her passion for mixing her technical knowhow with creativity and love of the absurd and unusual.
Catherine will be talking mostly about her love for colour changing NeoPixel LEDs and using them to make art to display data and a few other random things.
Jon runs The Luvvit Company. From a background in graphics, photography, multimedia, 2D and 3D design, Jon moved into sound and then started to make things including amplifiers, but also synths, organs and mixing desks, and the first Branston Amplifiers appeared. With help from STEAMhouse, Jon rebranded his amp designs as Brelliott Amps.
Jon has been developing AmpModula, which is a modular build guitar amplifier system. His aim is to provide the flexibility of sound and tone that he can provide with a fully custom hand-built amp in a click-together fully modular PCB based solution. They are designed so that people with limited soldering and assembly skills can build an amp to their own specification, much in the same way as you would assemble a PC, or a piece of flat-pack furniture.
In his talk, Jon will be showcasing his amps and the work behind them.
Places are limited and will go fast and booking is essential.
