In this workshop we will spend two afternoons exploring Improvisation as a tool for achieving further mental and physical ease in playing an instrument. All too often the weight of our own expectations stunts our real, physical ability to express what we want to. And all too often, what we are told to practice makes things worse. By exploring improvisation, we can let go of the pressure to perform, and become better aware of the already-existing relationship between our instruments and our bodies.
The workshop is planned as an experimental, theoretical and hands-on laboratory on the concepts of emergent systems, stochastic, chaotic and generative sound & light art installations. The participants will work based on the contents and the technological development of the installation RdES ( http://noconventions.mobi/noish/hotglue/?RdEs_eng/ ). In the lab we are going to be learning tools like Pure Data and Arduino and the participants will be develop collective prototypes.
Wearables synthesizers is a practical workshop focused on electronics manufacturing for textile projects. During the workshop we will learn to develop soft and flexible circuits, exercising sewing conductive materials and combining elements of textile world with electronics.

Slowlands – Berlin’s first Whisky-only bar night.
Exhilarating, hallucinatory, harrowing, ecstatic and surreal, Hisham Mayet’s films and audio collections reveal a region’s rituals, rhythm and landscape, with an aesthetic of extra-geography and soulful experience. Employing an unflinching methodology that continues to inspire contemporaries and audience alike, his many documentaries have been redefining the nature of ethnographic film, and continue to provoke and amaze in equal measure.
