X-Spirituaahl Sound Hacks, Workshop with Keith Lam, Hong Kong

The one and only, first time ever “X-Spirituaahl Sound Hacks” workshop, combining the easy hackable mantra boxes with some local sound toys, buddha machines and maybe even some musical souvenirs from indonesia. We plan an introduction into simple music toy hacking for making experimental and noisy tunes, first steps into lo-fi electronic circuits needed to expand the hacked circuitry with oscillators and amplifiers and most of all having fun hacking!

KIBLIX 2011 Educational Program - festival as a lab - will have a strong focus on education, hands-on making, collaboration and sharing of knowledge. The educational program is, on one side, addressing emerging artists to participate in professional / advanced workshops and exhibiting the outputs during the festival, and on the other side is reaching out to the public and the youth with various mini-workshops on creative and playful technology&art projects.
KIBLIX 2011 Festival - festival as a cultural performance - aims to be a platform where artists, who are hungry to know what researchers are doing and thinking, and researchers, jealous to know of artistic experimentation come together to explore, discuss and share their ideas.
Partner Festival MFRU will happen at the same time also in Maribor. With its long tradition as an international computer arts festival they invited an interesting program of a/v performances, in collaboration with Optofonica (NL) and will have various Slovenian artists exhibiting and giving presentations.
