movLab #27

  • Doors: 19:30
  • Start time: 20:00
  • Entrance: Free

A very special guest Moises Horta joins us for the 27th edition of our meet-up! Moises will give a short presentation about his work and interests in neural networks and how they can be used in the context of the movement based performances. He'll also talk a bit about his team's performance in this year's Music Makers Hacklab and how they used movement and sensors.

MOISÉS HORTA is an artist working in the fields of computer sound, sonic immersion and interaction. ℌEXOℜℭℑSMOS, his latest musical endeavour is an uncanny link between ancient and contemporary sound technologies. With the use of prehispanic sound artefacts from ancient México, contemporary brain-computer interface technology and hand crafted electronic instruments, ℌEXOℜℭℑSMOS situates the listener in a ritualistic and rhythmical noise soundscape that questions the politics of colonization and occupation – whether it be on the contemporary dance floor or through interactive sound installations. 

We want to see your projects! Whether you work with sound, virtual reality, interactive media, wearables or anything else related to the human body, bring your works. Tell us what have you done and show us how it worked! We may have a special guest speaker, stay tuned for more announcements!

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: rubyberlin.github.io/code-of-conduct/.
