This weekends Open Social will have a bit of a twist. There will be some live music to go along with the usually good mix of food, drinks and chat.
The social will kick off at 7pm this Saturday the 2nd of July until late. Feel free to bring your own beer and food along. It’s a great chance to visit the space and see what we are all about.This event is free and open to the public.
Dan a member of Tog will be giving an update on the great work being done at Cloughjordan, a new eco village, located in Tipperary.
Cloughjordan is a new concept in living. With Fibre Optic Internet to
every home, communal heating system, low energy concept housing, and a hackers dream, a fab-lab with laser cutter and a shop bot robotic machine. The fab-lab is still in construction with the foundations laid. Dan visited the village as part of the food festival and will explain how the village works and how they need help from hackers to get the best of technology to drive the economy.
After the talk we will have a set from Ewan from Boy Scout Audio http://boyscoutaudio.com/. Restricted to a mere 16 notes per pattern and 16 patterns per track, he squeezes the last drops of musical juice from a Nintendo DS, battering the synthesised daylights out of the bare-bones Korg DS-10 software that is the sole sound of his music. Csixtyforce and Zyme from Gamepak have also been added to the line up. Bring on the chip tunes.
