MW:M – AUGMENTING LIVE EVENTS: WHERE PHYSICAL MEETS VIRTUAL

MWM19-music-convention-6-7-nov-presented-indieberlin

With MW:M (Most Wanted: Music) bearing down at us at a rate of knots, we’re featuring a short series of posts to let you in on just how f*king cool this “better, modern, weirder music conference” actually is.

Taking the somewhat staid music conference template, turning it on its head, kicking it around the room and then refashioning it from the ground up, MW:M19 is sure to be a humdinger of a music industry get-together. And the best bit? There are still a small number of tickets going, so jump on that mother!

With ways to hook up with other industry goers including “Lunch Buddies”, “Most Wanted Walks” and the “BMC Breakfast Club” and a plethora of other crazy gimmicks that we’ll be unveiling in the next days (or you could just go to the website :)), it’s going to be an amazing couple of days – kicked off of course, the evening before, on the 5th November in Music House, by the Listen to Berlin Awards!

(And make sure to drop by the indieBerlin Mugshot Booth, say hallo and get a photo with other most wanted riders of the storm!)

REVOLUTIONARY MUSIC EXPERIENCES AND IMMERSIVE LIVE PERFORMANCES AT MW:M19

Technology has no appreciation of tradition. Just because live music has always been a one-way performance set in a venue, don’t be fooled into thinking it can’t change in a moment. In an age when interaction in entertainment is normal, music fans may yearn for a very new experience in 2020. MW:M19 discusses and demonstrates the tech meshing the virtual and the realthe passive and the interactive, right at the heart of the music industry. And: We’re thrilled to announce that the full program is online!

AUGMENTING LIVE EVENTS: WHERE PHYSICAL MEETS VIRTUAL

The live gig will soon take on a whole new meaning, existing in between “real” and “whoa, what was that?”. Innovative tech is creating new forms of live experiences, and MW:M19 gives a few of these projects a stage. They’ll discuss how their work not only enhances live experiences but also opens new doors for the audience, musicians and the industry itself. Celebrated musician, artist and technologist Josefine Phyllis and Sam Speaight, of Virtual Reality Jam, are among the experts who will blow your mind…

LIVE PERFORMANCES: IMMERSE YOURSELF… IN IMMERSION AT MW:M19
At MWM:19 you can be part of tomorrow’s live show, today. Prof. Ralf Schmidchanges what a piano performance can be as he “plays” a grand piano via hand gestures, shaping the show with motion through his mi.mu gloves. Flip the concept of a gig with Amsterdam jazz band Tin Men and the Telephone, whose performance and sound are controlled by the audience; and experience a unique performance-lecture as computer scientist Mark d’Inverno reveals the trick to programming creative AI.

PRAGMATISM AND IDEALISM: HOW NEW TECH IS CHANGING ELECTRONIC MUSIC
Tech innovation has always shaped the creative direction of electronic music, with DJs and producers quickly adopting new ideas and products. Some new shifts, like music streaming in the DJ booth, are pragmatic – but others, like AI songwriters and big data deciding key industry decisions, are more fundamental. In this exclusive session, AFEM (Association For Electronic Music) hosts industry experts to discuss the opportunities and disruptive potential of advancing tech.
