Hack Oregon Civic Lab - Data Synth Song: Experiencing Data as Audio

Falcon Building
321 NW Glisan Ave
Portland, OR 97209, US (map)

Hack Oregon Civic Lab is located on the 4th Floor. Someone will be in the lobby to let you in and up the elevator, if no one is there when you arrive, please text Megan at (828)335-3996.



This session, by Nick Lambert, will explore the possibilities of turning visual data into a musical soundscape. How can this become something where a set of data points can be its own song? How would this be done and shown on a website? Some of this we will talk logistics and how it would function on the Hack Oregon website, and some of this we will actually try to create together. Join us, as we think of sounds, synth pads, instruments, beats, AND data that could make up an experience like never before.

Nick Lambert is the Design Lead for the Hack Oregon Homelessness Team and Community Director at Oregon Story Board.

Hack Oregon's Civic Lab is made up of Oregon's brightest coders, creatives, government leaders, and community members working together to discover the invisible stories of our civic life.

We're hosting three months of curated workshops, build sessions, and guest speakers all leading toward one goal: a radically new open data portal for the City of Portland. Built by the people, for the people.
