A weekend of sound and music creation. The theme of the convention is making music with free and open source software and hardware. That ranges from a single program up to a whole operating system. No matter the technology, the music is always at the center of it. Every talk, demonstration or workshop is be focused on music. Presentations and workshops are “hands-on”. They are meant for musicians, composers, broadcasters, etc. who do not need to know anything about messing with the internals of their software. If you just want to record or create nice synthesized or sampled sounds with your computer – the Sonoj Convention is for you! We believe that open source software ultimately helps you to achieve your goals. So bring your computer and join other creators on site!
