The Art of Typewriting

November 17, 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

This is an online event.

In this online performance and talk, learn how, with a little creativity, you can make music and art with typewriters. Delve into the world of typewriter artists and musicians who have harnessed typing technology in unique and creative ways and discover the typewriter’s early musical connections. Some of the earliest typewriter models used piano keys, and musical analogies like ‘composing text’ are still hidden in the language we use when talking about typing today. Watch works of typewriter art take shape and listen to a musical performance like no other!
