Our Beat Making Lab is applying for an Open Art grant, which would allow us to start development on our dream: open source beat making software we are calling PAMOJA, which means oneness or solidarity.

The grant is sponsored by Mozilla and Eyebeam Art & Technology Center and would invest $15,000 towards development of the software. This would help us foster music creation in communities internationally.

We need a developer by Wednesday, October 17th!

Are you or someone you know interested and well-versed in HTML, CSS, and Javascript? Perhaps you even have experience developing open source programs and software? The developer's main goal will be to launch a beta version of PAMOJA with a "web app" style beat making interface.

Interested persons:

  1. Check out the Open Eye equipment inventory list
  2. Articulate how you would use it to develop PAMOJA
  3. Email us at:

Note: our developer cannot currently be enrolled in a degree-granting academic program.
