MOVING SOUNDS FESTIVAL | WORKSHOP
MOVING SOUNDS FESTIVAL | ABLETON LIVE LIVE
SATURDAY, OCT 21 2017, 04:00 PM - 06:00 PM
ABLETON LIVE LIVE by POWRPLNT Artists and Affiliates 4-6 PM
There is a discrepancy between computer music and the idea of "real" music. This space may be filled with critique on improvisation, technique, or training. We would like to experiment with bringing spontaneity and the traditional idea of "jamming" into the digital realm, utilizing Midi controllers to reconsider the computer as instrument in its own right. We will have all 6 of our computers opened and programmed in Live with midi controllers so multiple people can play and experiment in live at the same time, creating an interactive space for getting to know Live better or showing others what you already know.
- Feel free to bring your own computer or a USB with your Live sets, and/or your favorite Midi Controller.
- All ages welcome.
POWRPLNT is a space where the digital arts community engages the next generation of creators. It functions as gallery space, internet lounge and an environment where people from all backgrounds may learn the skills necessary to express themselves creatively in today's networks. Organized by Angelina Dreem, Anibal Luque and Salome Asega, POWRPLNT aims to make the digital world accessible, personal and more human. www.powrplnt.org
ABOUT MOVING SOUNDS
The ACFNY's Moving Sounds Festival of music, visual media and aesthetic dialogue was founded together with Argento Ensemble in 2009. Intersecting artistic genres and breaking cultural boundaries, Moving Sounds brings together fresh works, rare pairings and contemporary approaches to music, performance and visual media, drawing from past traditions, while balancing on the cutting edge of tomorrow. The current program draws from the deep pockets of knowledge and experimentation at the juncture of art, technology and society of the renowned international institutions, Ars Electronica and Eyebeam, together with ISSUE Project Room and POWRPLNT. Moving Sounds 2017 takes place between October 15 and 21, 2017 in various locations in Brooklyn and Manhattan. www.movingsoundsfestival.org
