Futuresonic Update

futuresonic 06 logo20-23 July, Manchester

Futuresonic, the electronic music and media arts festival, this year celebrates ten years at the forefront of its field.

The 2006 festival takes place over three days traversing music and the arts, involving multiple and often unusual spaces.

FACT’s ex-Director, Eddie Berg, is coming up to introduce Toshio Iwai’s key note lecture. Japanese wunderkind, Toshio Iwai also presents a UK-first live performance of the aptly-named TENORI-ON- Japanese for ‘sound on your palm’.

I’m interested in the Manchester Soundmap project and sCrAmBlEd?HaCkZ! which allows you to speak into a microphone and hear and see an 80s pop star mimic your every word, in real time. Unique software analyses your voice and matches it to outtakes from a database of 80s music videos.
