CTM Festival Berlin Research Trip

To kickstart our explorations for the Arts+Tech creative accelerator we journeyed to Berlin for CTM Festival for adventurous music and art; which this year had a specific focus on sound art… perfect for us. It was a chance to gain inspiration by seeing some installations utilising the latest technology attend the research and networking events and generate some interest for our project.

On the trip we took part in speed dating part of the research networking day, pitching our Noise Orchestra project to a range of sound art and gallery curators from aross Europe. We found out about the main sound art networks such as SHAPE, SOCCOS and ENAC and learnt about performance and residency opportunities.

Ableton ran a drop in workshop showcasing their new plug ins released in April that work with new physical input objects, real time data and excitingly are compatible with arduino. Check the video here

We visited Musicmakers Hacklab, a week long project led by noise artist Ewa Justka who introduced us to the various electronic projects the participants were creating. It was interesting to see various projects involving the chips and some of the graphical sound techniques we employ for the final performance at HAU2.
