From 26th-28th September 2014 Network Music Festival explores the impact of internet technology on musical creation and performance practice with a weekend of innovative musical performances, installations, workshops and talks.
Now in its third year, the festival brings together communities of artists and researchers in venues around Birmingham’s creative and digital quarter Digbeth along with leading performers and artists from around the world. The main theme for 2014 is collaboration through online environments and networked live coding, exploring the aesthetics, performance practice and technologies around topics such as multi-location performance, web-streaming, collaborative live coding environments, interactive participatory activities and more.
Participating artists include Clamour, Hugs Bison, LaptopsRus, Canute, Andrea Young, and Alo Allik.
Tickets are £10-12 (£8-10 concs) for a day pass or £30 (£25 concs) for a weekend pass including all events and concerts. They are available now at http://networkmusicfestival14.brownpapertickets.com.
