MMessy Oscillators is a band that performs experimental electronics, field recording
and drone music. It was created as an outcome of the music section of I’MM_ and has had to date a number of well-received appearances at festivals and in Zagreb galleries. MMessy Oscillators mostly uses DIY instruments like theremins, oscillators, DIY synthesizers and effects.

I'MM_ Medialab (HR)
I’MM_ Media lab was founded in June 2011 in Zagreb as part of the programme Culture of Change in the Student Centre. I’MM_ consists of three platforms: a) a hacklab − workshop; b) open weekend workshops with local and international lecturers/hackers/artists and c) a media lab (theory, curatorial practice, lectures by international experts / speakers in the area of intermedia arts). The I’MM_ project has rapidly become recognised as a must on the domestic and international scene, the objectives of it being the strengthening of artistic and curatorial praxes and the opening of programmes for the education of the population at large, enabling a greater number of multilayered cooperative ventures and coproductions among the participants themselves following the concepts of open source hardware, shareable and crowdsourcing. I’MM_ organises workshops for young and old, professionals and enthusiasts, artists and scientists, hackers and designers, engineers and architects. The objective here is to create new realities of intermedia and new media practices, in line with world trends such as DIY (do-it-yourself) and DIWO (do-it-with-others), hacking and inter-leafing of high technology with lowtech. I’MM_ is composed of several sections: hands-on electronics, biohacking, audio section, art section (visual art, installations, net art, intermedia art, new media art), VJing, 3D printing, Balkan rocketry, robotics and wearable technology.
