This weekend I will present Ambisonoc Toolkit (ATK) for Reaper at #MTFScandi in Umeå, Sweden.

 

Music Tech Fest is the free festival of music ideas, mixing performances and experiments, hacks, demos, and installations. Since 2012 Music Tech Fest has been redefining how music is perceived, performed and experienced. It is now time to build some new formats for music.

Now it is landing in Sweden – the biggest world exporter of music per capita – and gathering the best minds able to transform this new media landscape, for a Music Tech Fest Scandinavia.

Sunday 31st May: Building the future of music

From 09:00 – 12:00 in Sliperiet: Sunday morning at Music Tech Fest is all about making, inventing and building new playful music ideas in the Volvo Kids Hack Camp. Our specialist workshop leaders are skilled educators who provide children with the tools and the skills to make their own creative project and build their own musical instruments – while learning coding, physical computing and music participation – and having great fun. In the afternoon the kids present and perform with their inventions on the main stage – which is always a real highlight of the festival.
