movLab #24

  • Start time: 19:30
  • Entrance: Free

After various showcases at musical events, we are happy to present the NTMI at MovLab to a community interested in dance and movement and offer hands-on testing for anyone interested. Come with your laptop, ideas, inspiration, and let's share!

Isak and Hannes from airborne instruments will visit MovLab to present the brand new NTMI - NonTrivial Music Instrument, which allows musicians, dancers and non-expert alike to create highly immersive sound worlds by body movement.

The NTMI is dually composed of a handheld interactor that precisely translates movement, orientation and acceleration into musical data, and the NTMI App, an all open source sound engine that empowers the performer fot complex polyphonic, multichannel soundscapes without any coding skills, while still being completely extensible and hackable for expert users.


movLab is a place for researching ways to digitize motion and the human body and to make the data accessible for further use in VR, gaming, stage performance or art. We are building sensors, writing code and explore new ways of moving.

At our community meetings we get together and experiment. Some of us may be trained professionals others are completely new to the field. You do not need to know or have anything to join us, apart from respect for the people around you.

We embrace diversity in thoughts, bodies and looks! We take the unknown and unfamiliar as inspiration and as a challenge to rethink ourselves. An especially warm welcome those who are often underrepresented in the tech domain! We strongly believe in the Berlin Code of Conduct: https://rubyberlin.github.io/code-of-conduct/.
