From September 2015 Studio LOOS will start a new activity concentrating on education. It will be called ‘different music school’ and will try to bring interesting workshops with hands­on approach to the Hague. There are many educational activities here already provided by the established institutions such as the Royal Conservatory and the Academy of Arts. We will not try to compete with them but co­operate in order to cover new and unexplored territories. The approach will be that of a maker’s and DIY cultures with open source technologies at it’s core. We will try to keep the fees at the minimum and at the end of each workshop the participants will have built an instrument (software or hardware) which they will be able to take home, explore further and use in their musical practice. We welcome expressions of interest from potential workshops leaders.
