  2. “Repetitive Beats, Repetitive Conditionals & the Future of Dance and Music Making”

    The symposium talks a lot of of technology and how to make things, but the focal point is how digital technology changes our own body. So it should be relevant to anybody.

    The biological function of music is still to be understood completely, but music has always been part of human culture. Obviously the human brain has superfluous capacities, which allows us being touched very deeply by music. The amount of dexterity, the number of rules to follow (or break) when making music is incredible. The mental capacities of gifted musicians to spell out intense emotions into a series of microscopic interactions with a musical instrument can be breathtaking. How is it to actually make music? And what it is like to experience music? What happens in the mind?
    And how is the situation change with digital tools? Overwhelming complexity is strikingly simple thing to do on a computer. The repetition of beats has come a long way from being only available at shamanic rituals to being the most trivial thing to click on a drum machine.
    Since the popularization of digital music we have been confronted with musicians on stage who have literally nothing to do anymore other than staring blankly into laptop screens. Each digital tool had pushed music to a new level. What does this mean for music makers and music lovers?

    The fourth panel about the changing role of the human body in Dance Music and Music Making will be moderated by Peter Kirn.
    Classically trained in composition and piano, he is now focussing on live electronic performance, founded the blog createdigitalmusic.com and co-created the open source synthesizer MeeBlip.

  3. "The Invisible Interface and the Future of Politics and Power"

    The symposium talks a lot of of technology and how to make things, but the focal point is how digital technology changes our own body. So it should be relevant to anybody.

    Switching on a light, cooking a meal, placing a phone call, watching TV or driving a car - almost all human activities in our modern civilization are controlled by computer programs. The fabric of everyday life is woven out of disappearing digital codes. There is no escape anymore: We are wrapped in an invisible Interface. Even standing on the street makes us use computers. Cameras may observe our face, our emotions and behaviours. Smartphones track our motions and actions. Autonomous cars will sense our motions and use them to calculate their paths.
    Drones may bring roasted pigeons or Amazon deliveries in the future, but already today bring death and terror to humans having the wrong bits in their digital records. A global butterfly effect connects any potential action of any human being to an arbitrary reaction of anything else in the future. We are wrapped in code. And any computer can be reprogrammed as any other computer, so the code may change. It starts blowing our mind.

    Kyle McDonald (US) is an artist who works in the open with code. He is a contributor to arts-engineering toolkits like openFrameworks, and builds tools that allow artists to use new algorithms in creative ways. His work is very process-oriented, and he has made a habit of sharing ideas and projects in public before they're completed. He enjoys creatively subverting networked communication and computation, exploring glitch and embedded biases, and extending these concepts to reversal of everything from personal identity to work habits.

  4. NODE15 vvvv Keynode megashow

    A lot of things have happened since the last big gathering of vvvv enthusiasts for NODE in February 2013. We'll have a look back to remind us all of what happened since and let contributors demo us their latest and greatest.

    And remember when last time we gave a cocky demo of that next big thing? That new version of vvvv that will bring us a lot of joy (and despair)... we have more of that, this time. The only difference, this time it's for real. Whatevvvver we have knocked together until this evening will be yours to test. Promised.
