MTI's Enhancement Week activities this year will include MOBILISE! - two days of events around ideas and practices of mobile sound:
MOBILISE explores the emergent field of mobile music making and new sound practice. The free event sees an incredible line-up of the world’s mobile music masters descending on De Montfort University’s Music, Technology and Innovation Research Centre for two days of workshops, hands-on programming, talks and performances.
MOBILISE Hackathon Tuesday 28 February, 10 am – 4pm
A workshop for the CoSiMa web audio application with IRCAM's Norbert Schnell and Benjamin Matuszewski. Participants will design and program a simple performance mobile app using the Soundworks framework. IRCAM (Institute for Research and Coordination in Acoustics/Music), Paris, is one of the world’s most leading centres for electronic music, and this will be the first time their delegates have ever performed outside of London.
No programming experience required, just a curiosity to be part of a collective Smartphone experience.
