The first song played at 83c was by Welle:ErdBall from the album Die Wunderwelt der Technik and the song was "23... C=64.". The first song to play at 2169 was "Yippie" by Mouse on Mars.
The physical space has a number of sound systems in various rooms. Please be considerate of those around you when playing music in the space. Asking before blasting.
You can learn about musicians and specifics about music playing options over on Music Guild. This page is for sound systems.
You can Chromecast or AirTunes to the sound system in the Hackitorium. Make sure the mixer is on (power switch on top) and the volume turned up to the right channel, and the input (inside the large black AV box) is switched to the correct device.
Here is the photo of the large black AV box:
For example, if you want to play music via Apple TV, set the HDMI SWitcher to "appleTV", and set the output device to "Apple TV Hackatorium" on your machine. Play your favorite music, and dance dance dance! 🕺💃
A RaspberryPi is plugged into the mixer too. It's located on the network at hackitorium-rpi.noise and plays Somafm, most of the time, which can be accessed via the command line tool mpc. To find out the current song and channel, enter into your command line the command
mpc -h hackitorium-rpi.noise
There is a line in cable coming out of the AV box you can plug into a random music making device. Make sure you turn the mixer up on that channel.
Turing and Church Classrooms
You can Chromecast or AirTunes to the sound system in the classrooms. The speakers are always on and turned up to some appropriate volume level. Make sure you switch the switcher in the AV box to the correct device.

There's a speaker system above the shelves. A line in should be dangled near the door.
There's a Chromecast plugged into the system but it's a little busted right now, sorry. Hugs.
There's a Bluetooth enabled speaker sitting near by most of the time.
