Villalobos & Loderbauer present Re-ECM live

“REWIRE is an annual festival for contemporary music and related visual arts. The festival showcases relevant developments in the fields mentioned through an extensive music programme, a long run exhibition, screenings, performances and an education programme. The third edition will take place on November 8 and 9 2013 in The Hague city centre. The exhibition will run from November 8 until December 14th.

This year the REWIRE Festival music programme centres on several cornerstones: Nordic Jazz, Indie Classical, Chamber Pop, the Collaborative Programme and Post-punk/minimal wave. It also highlights a number of interesting electronic producers who are developing as against-the-grain vocalists. The night programme focuses on leading, innovatory electronic dance music producers. On Saturday the renowned R&S Record label celebrates its 30th birthday during the ‘R&S Records x REWIRE dance night’. The programme will showcase a few of R&S’ current artists, including Lone, Space Dimension Controller, dBridge and Cloud Boat.”

The Urban Explorers 2009 video interface

The Urban Explorers video interface (live report) from Wilbert Baan on Vimeo.

For the music and art festival Urban Explorers festival I made a special video interface. During the festival reporters uploaded video with their mobile phones. The video was categorized on artists, venues and makers based on the video title. The project used the Blip API.

Give it a try.

The report was done by reporters. I was supposed to be a reporter as well, but missed the festival because of the birth of Benjamin.

The process of building the interface can be found here.

The Picnic 2008 Live Report

Picnic Live Report 2008

Until friday there is the Picnic conference in Amsterdam. A three day event about creativity, media and technology.

With Roeland from Slandr and Mathijs from Mobypicture we created the Live Report for this event. It is a website that aggregates tagged content on services like Twitter, Flickr, YouTube, Blogs, Mobypicture and Qik. And streams this information live next to a videostream from the main conference hall with the keynote speakers. You can follow the keynotes, but also see what is going on and what people are thinking or talking about.

The Live Report:

I Tag Therefore I Am Aggregated
If you want to join the Live Report, make sure to tag your content with PICNIC08 and use the service you like.

Last year I also worked for the Picnic Live Report 2007 hosted by the VPRO. This friday-afternoon Eclectro will be live reporting from the TodaysArt festival in The Hague, a festival about Art, Music and Technology in the Netherlands. Here we will also use the Live Report
