Asha Blatherwick also had the opportunity to show her SenseEgg during the Student Conference for Music, Multimedia and Electronics iscMME2015.  Here is a brief summary of her experience.

On Monday the 15th June I got the chance to take the SenseEgg up to Leeds for its conference debut at the iscMME2015 student conference. I presented the system with a little context and also demoed it as a hands-on opportunity for the attendees to have a play with it. The egg received a positive response which was super. 

The conference itself way a great mix of music and science based presentations with a fantastic keynote by Thor Magnusson looking at how interfaces inform and augments or interactions with computer based music. To top it all off we had 4 performances within a multi-speaker setup with some acousmatic and a performance art piece. The full line-up can be found here”.
