Network Music Festival

A hi-tech musical weekender // 26-28th September 2014

TALKS AND WORKSHOPS

Alongside our performance and installation programme the festival will also include a chance to explore the inner-workings of network music with a variety of general interest and specialist talks and workshops – open to all levels of experience.

Our 3 talks sessions include:

Technical Talks from tech experts and artists explaining some of the newest technological developments and projects related to Network Music.

General Interest Talks on accessible topics from network artists, including new development in music notation systems in the networked world and the challenges of performing over a network in co-located and geographically dispersed ensembles.

Pre-Concert talk with The Hub. The seminal network band The Hub will talk about their work in conversation with Dr. Nick Collins. There’ll also be an opportunity for audience questions.

We will be running 2 workshops over the saturday and sunday of the festival:

Sebastien Piquemal will run a 2 part workshop introducing the WebPD programming language for web ‘jamming’ projects. The workshop is free to NMF ticket holders and open to all levels of experience. Beginners will learn the basics of webPD and javascript and advanced users will focus on building projects.

Roger Thomas will present CIRCE: collective and interactive recording with collaborative electronics. A chance to get your hands on the controllers and tools that network artists are using to make music with in an interactive session and to record your own contribution to an album of improvised electronic music. No technical or musical knowledge required!
