Music Tech Fest in Stockholm
Music Tech Fest’s design of instruments for disabled musicians; Beatie Wolfe’s art of music in the digital age; Creative Selection; Elevation – how drones will change cities
Music Tech Fest is a three-day arts festival and creative space where participants share and "develop new formats of musical performance and expression”. Click hears from Michela Magas about the highlights including a musical collaboration that helps a disabled DJ (Tim Palm) whose work with technology includes adjusting the controls on his iPad with his nose.
A new display at London’s V&A Museum explores what design for music can mean in the digital age – from a musical jacket woven with Beatie Wolfe's music to the world’s first "anti-stream" from the quietest room on Earth. Beatie Wolfe joins Click to discuss the new work.
Ken Kocienda spent fifteen years at Apple as part of a creative team making innovative software and is one of the key people behind why the iPhone touchscreen keyboard turned out the way it did, and why Apple’s product culture was so special. Kocienda joins Click to discuss his work in a new book, Creative Selection.
Drones will transform cities, revolutionising how people travel, how goods are delivered and how buildings look and are constructed, according to a documentary by Dezeen. Click talks to the director of the film, Marcus Fairs.
