MusicMakers: A design party for the future of music


14 September, 18h – 21h / Party 21h-06h

Prince Charles
Prinzenstrasse 85F (Moritzplatz U8), 10969 Berlin

In the age of anonymous laptop DJs and machine-selected automatic streams, what would it take to make music tangible again? A collective community of Berlin musical DIYers answers with the inaugural installment of the MusicMakers design party. Live experimental dance music and all-hardware dance sets join an extensive collection of music objects.

Visitors will get personal and hands-on with new, original instruments and interactive installations, from a handmade bass kalimba (called a marímbula) to a futuristic gestural AirPiano. They’ll be bathed in video projections, and hold music in their arms with an RFID-driven interactive work.
