If you’re in New York, there’s an interesting event scheduled for February 3rd, Techserve’s Future Of Music V, which will feature WireToTheEar’s Oliver Chesler (aka The Horrorist) and CDM’s Peter Kirn.
Apparently the Future Of Music is iPad music apps!
Here’s the rundown on the event:
The Future of Music V: The Craft of iPad Music-Making
Join us at Tekserve for the fifth Future of Music performance and panel discussion, co-presented with Peter Kirn of Create Digital Music, a leading blog and community for artists pushing the possibilities of how technology is used to create music. In this installment, we’ll take a look at how the proliferation of iPad and iApps has empowered amateurs and pros alike to create and perform music in new ways, anywhere.
The iPad has emerged as a new platform for music creation and performance. A new breed of software with innovative graphical interfaces, all powered by touch, is bringing futuristic musical interaction to your fingertips.
At this special Future of Music event, you’ll hear and see the musical and visual results as leading electronic artists perform live. Learn how you can use the tools they’re using, whether you’re an advanced musician or just want to get started.
Harry Allen will be back again to moderate discussion between four cutting-edge artists:
- Peter Kirn (createdigitalmusic.com) will demonstrate how the iPad can work with open-source gear to make music via both touch and traditional hardware control
- Steve Horelick (stevehmusic.com), an accomplished composer, songwriter and electronic music performer, will share his advanced, custom-built Logic environments, wherein he couple controllers with new iPad creations
- Joshue Ott (Thicket app, intervalstudios.com) will demonstrate his apps that transform the iPad into an audio/visual art object, inspired by his live performances with musicians around the world
- Oliver Chesler (aka The Horrorist, wiretotheear.com) will present the best music-making and performance apps and how to fit them into your workflow
Come to Tekserve on Thursday, February 3rd at 8:30 to catch these exclusive performances and join in on the discussion.
While we’re not ready to relegate synthesizers to the dustbin of the history quite yet, Tekserve has a a great line-up for the event – and a provocative topic.
