What Happened at the Maker Faire???

Tuesday, May 22nd, 2012

Even though I was not one of the lucky attendees of the Maker Faire this year I was still able to get a wonderful play by play of the events that occurred in the span of the weekend. What I found out was certainly words of praise from the children young and old that attended the faire. Everyone who stopped by the Cogswell booth and interacted with the group that composes the new class, Genre Electronica, loved what they saw… or heard, rather. Our group of talented students had a few different setups and were recording sounds from anyone passing by who would be willing to lend their voice. After they recorded some samples from people, they would begin to compose dance music. There was even a couple of young professionals that were begging our students to upload to YouTube the rap that they laid down as part of the demonstration. Overall, this was a spectacular event for Cogswell, Genre Electronica and everyone involved. Congrats to you guys!

Genre Electronica at the Maker Faire

Genre Electronica at the Maker Faire

I just wanted to throw this out to remind anyone that has forgotten or to let anyone know that hasn’t heard yet. The Maker Faire is in San Mateo this weekend, May 19th and 20th! The Maker Faire is a two-day, family-friendly festival of invention, creativity and resourcefulness, and a celebration of the Maker movement. Cogswell’s very own Genre Electronica will have a spot at the faire and will be creating Electronic Dance Music with the sounds that they record at the faire (soooo cool). So, if you have time this weekend, grab a ticket and head out to pay our Cogswell students and all the other Makers a visit. I can promise that it will be worth your time! Have fun!
