Announcement and Invitation: Sonoj Convention (November the 4th and 5th 2017 in Cologne, Germany)
Music and technology come together on November the 4th and 5th
2017 in Cologne, Germany. See, hear and learn how music gets
created using free and open source software and hardware. Meet
new people and their exiting creative techniques; and show your
own, if you want! The only requirement for participation is an
interest to make and create music. You do not have to be an
expert of any kind to enjoy the event.
The theme of the convention is making music with free and open
source software and hardware. That includes a single program up
to a whole operating system. No matter the technology, the music
is at the centre of it. Every talk, demonstration or workshop
will be focused on music. This also includes a top-down approach
e.g. we advise our speakers to start with a piece of music and
refer everything after that to it.
You are invited to apply to present anything that matches the
theme of Sonoj Convention. To apply please fill out the form on
the website or write an e-mail to [hidden email]. We only require a
preliminary text that broadly outlines your idea. Mention at
least how much time it will take and the format of your idea
(e.g. demonstration of your own music and workflow, tutorial
with audience-participation etc.). We will get in touch with you
shortly after your submission.
