lab 30

lab30, Augsburg’s Media Arts Festival, is going to take place this year for the 10th time. From October 27th to October 29th, Kulturhaus abraxas will be transformed into an international arts laboratory for media and installation artists, for sound, electronics, technicians, workshop leaders and digitals artists who make up the offspring of the European arts academy scene. This festival of electronic arts has found its level within the relevant festival landscape, moving on from being an insider’s tip to becoming a constant in the yearly agenda of visitors and artists who travel the scene.

Create your World - SGMK @ Ars Electronica

“Make Your Own Stuff!!” is the motto. Kids can drop by whenever they have the time and the inclination. They’ll learn to construct tiny electronic switches that can be combined to produce a minimalistic light gadget (Seifenschaumlicht) and a small noise maker that reacts on humidity.

Programming with Max For Live - Beginners workshop

Max for Live is a collaboration between Cycling '74 and Ableton. With Max for Live you can create synthesizers, sequencers, MIDI or audio effects and more exotic things that work just like other Live devices. This workshop will start at the very beginning so no prior knowledge of Max is necessary (but a basic knowledge of Ableton Live will be helpful).

The workshop will be held in English and German.

Location: NK / Elsen Str. 52 (2. Hof) 2. Etage
