new expressions in music

Oh wow! What’s happened with you guys? Yes, we’ve been to Johannesburg | South Africa to follow an invitation of the Goethe-Institute. We were working on concepts to the task – how to create new expression in music. Together with some professional local artists we’ve been part of the workshop “Future Sounds”. Prepared with heaps of electronic stuff and tons of motivation we helped out to end up with a nice little project which reflects the people of Johannesburg and their deep-rooted connection to music. Apparently, we’re skilled enough to give a little excursion into to the interfaces between Midi-Instruments and micro-controlled sensors to handle an approach of body-designed electronic music.  So we teamed up with Ableton and created a micro controller set up to directly create MIDI inputs by analog and digital signals coming from Arduino. And it all ended up in a large party.
