How do new technologies affect the music industry? The Musicday at re:publica TEN explored various ways in which technologies can influence and expand music production, visualisation and collections.
Kate Stone is an entrepreneur and a “creative scientist” who connects online with offline by using cardboard to generate music. Check out her video interview with volunteers from Bayerischer Rundfunk to see exactly how she does it.
Artist and entrepreneur Matan Berkowitz develops instruments that react to brain waves and minimal movements. In his talk "Music is the Instrument – Innovation for Impact" he explained how this type of technology can help paralyzed people make music.
Better conditions for producing music, more selection for listeners and more possibilities to connect and exchange. Four Start-Up projects presented their ideas on innovative music making and listening during the Musicday.
Print is dying out, right? Kate Stone took to Stage 1 on the first day of the re:publica TEN to prove the exact opposite: With a little digital help and some music, she can literally make a piece of paper sing.
Men still dominate the music industry. The Berlin singer-songwriter Roxanne de Bastion wants to change that. She spoke about how the decentralisation of the music industry could be the key to that change in the labore:tory at the Musicday.
- Science & Technology-Matan's incredible journey from musician & film maker to award winning inventor started with the realization that his actions could have more 'real, positive impact on the world'. In the past 2 years he has developed ways to translate heartbeats, brainwaves and motions into music while turning everyday objects such as hats, glasses and gloves into instruments, working to empower people with special needs to express themselves in new ways, speaking and performing on stages worldwide and building interactive installations for museums & galleries.
As the founder of Shift, a company which specializes in positive innovation, Matan is now laying the foundations for a new kind of lab - one which works with emerging technologies while focusing on their potential to do good in the world. During this fascinating talk Matan will not only share his story, insights and inventions, but also perform a live demo of his latest prototype, which enables anyone to play music using nothing but hand movements.
You have been waiting for this: Starting today, check out the #rpTEN programme schedule, find sessions that appeal to you and even put together your very own session plan for 2 – 4 May.
We look forward to our new cooperation with EDFVR. Virtual Reality will feature heavily at re:publica.
