This Friday I’ll be presenting my Perception plugin at Music Tech Fest in London.
I hadn’t heard of the event before, but the more I learned the more I realised just how cool it’s going to be. And that was before I got my invitation…
(Yes, that’s a circuit-bent talking computer toy)
(Yes, that’s a miniature battery-powered Marshal amp)
(Yes, it makes bizarre and wonderful noises)
(Yes, that was all part of the invite!)
So I decided I simply had to talk to director Andrew Dubber to find out more. And once I had, I was even more excited about attending – I think you will be, too.
Take a look at the video above to find out (amongst other things) – why Music Tech Fest is really a festival of ideas, why Dubber thinks all music is “tech”, what a “brainwave quartet” is and whether computers can write classical music or not…
The event runs this weekend – Friday 5th – Sunday 7th September. I’m demonstrating Perception at 6:30 pm on Friday, and you can see the complete lineup here:

And tickets are only £20, or £50 for the whole weekend !
There’s an academic symposium following the event on Monday, and the festival is being filmed and live-streamed – check out the YouTube channel here:
As Dubber says in the interview – “Your brain will fire off in all these different directions, because everything is that interesting”
Maybe I’ll see you there…?!
