Thursday 5th of September – back to Troyganic – ‘Plug + Play’ system by Neil Merry
After a month spent at the Barbican center, to where we moved all our events and activities for the whole month of August during Hack the Barbican event (which was a great success) we are back to Troyganic and we are not slowing down!!!
WHEN: Thursday 5th of September, 7pm
WHERE: 132 Kingsland Road, London, Troyganic (in the basement). Tube: Hoxton
The first event will feature a presentation of ‘Plug + Play’ system by Neil Merry , a recent graduate from the Design Products Course at the Royal College of Art.
‘Plug + Play’ is a new way to interact with music production software. Traditionally, electronic music requires the performer to hunch behind a laptop, synthesizer or drum machine pushing buttons and twiddling knobs. Through a series of clip on sensors and interactive lights, this portable ‘toolkit’ translates on-stage actions into audio and visual effects. It bridges this gap between the static production of digital sounds and the front-of-stage energy created by live amplified instruments. Focusing on artists that cross the boundary of music producer, DJ, and live band, Plug & Play transforms a microphone stand into a dynamic music controller, a maraca into a heavy bass line or a raised hand into a pulsating synth wave.
