We are very very pleased to announce that Book Of Sound has become an official media partner to the rather fabulous Music Tech Fest London. What this means is there’ll be full coverage of the London event via live tweeting on our Twitter feed and blogging here at bookofsound.com, as well as Book Of Sound being an official source for all Music Tech Fest announcements for London and abroad. We’ll also be a presence at the London show so come and say hi!
Music Tech Fest is the Festival of Music Ideas and, now in its 3rd year, has very quickly become a global phenomenon. Originally based in London, 2014 marks the start of it going across the planet with shows in New York, London, Paris, Berlin, Boston and Wellington, New Zealand, with 15 international dates already in the diary for 2015.
There are two main components to the festival. Music Tech Fest features a main stage which hosts performances and demonstrations of the cutting edge of both the art and science of music technology. Artists and innovators showcase, perform and discuss their ideas, inventions, products and music. In addition, the festival hosts a 24-hour hack camp at which artists and technologists collaborate to respond to challenges, invent new types of instruments, new ways of making music and new ways of experiencing music. These inventions are then showcased on the main stage and prizes given to the challenge winners.
The 2014 London show is running from the 5th to the 9th of September in partnership with the London Symphony Orchestra, and will take place at the LSO’s fantastic St Lukes venue, smack bang on London’s “Silicon Roundabout” and therefore ideally placed to bring together the best in music and technology from the country.
