#MTFBerlin – Funkhaus 27-30 May 2016

Music Tech Fest MTFBerlin flockOmania Zoe Robertson

flockOmania has been invited to perform at the incredible international Music Tech Fest in Berlin at the end of May. See the announcement HERE

“This year’s festival theme is Transhumanism and Music as Extension of the Human Body. It’s about pushing at the boundaries of what technology can do to transcend all supposed limitations and take human creative intelligence to new planes.”

“In the last week of May 2016, the legendary Funkhaus turns into a giant creative laboratory – a labyrinth of rooms and corridors filled with curious experiments that fuse musical performance and cutting edge technologies. Artists you know well (as well as some you should – and will very soon) team up with the scientists, makers, hackers, designers, creative developers and genius inventors to create strange machines, amazing mixtures, incredible experiences and transhuman wonders. With experiments in mindreading controllers, interactive performances, microbiology synthesisers, bionic extensions and junkyard robotics – the laboratory of #MTFBerlin is a place to explore, discover, and get involved”

‘Music as Extension of the Human Body’

“Between the 23rd and the 27th of May 2016, Zoe will join a group of specially invited artists, makers, designers and inventors to explore interactive performance and ‘Music as Extension of the Human Body’ in a secret chamber of the legendary Funkhaus. Results of this collaboration will be accessible by hackers on Friday 27th and audiences on Saturday 28th of May, during #MTFBerlin”

“Music Tech Fest is a platform that not only brings together artists and developers, but also some of the greatest academic minds working at the intersection of music and technology from across a wide range of disciplines. The MTF ‘Afterparty’ is an academic symposium that takes place on the Monday following the festival weekend – the fourth day of a three-day festival. The purpose of the symposium is to reflect on the ideas that come out of the festival, to share cutting edge research across disciplines, to further the study of music technologies and to initiate collaborative research projects”
