What will the future of electronic music look like? What instruments will we need? How will we collaborate with the machines that are yet to be built?
DATE: Friday the 16th of October, 2015
TIME: 16:30 – 18:30
LOCATION: Compagnietheater (C3 DIY Room), Kloveniersburgwal 50, Amsterdam
COSTS: Free entrance
During this workshop “machines” will be designed for creative expression. Working with low and no-tech, we build non-functional instruments aimed at inventing the music machine of the future. By taking as a starting point how an individual imagines the experience of playing electronic music, we will spend the afternoon making the perfect machine or instrument for that person. This process is led by the designers and researchers from Native Instruments, Johannes Kepler Universität and STEIM, with the goal of making instruments that are positioned on the bleeding edge of technology.
This workshop forms part of the Giantsteps project, a collaboration between Native Instruments, Reactable, Red Bull Music Academy, Universitat Pompeu Fabra, Johannes Kepler Universität, JCP-Consult, and STEIM funded by the European Union.
Presented by Kristina Andersen (STEIM) and Michael Hlatky (Native Instruments)
