Convergence is a music and technology series taking place between the 18-27 April in the heart of London with a whole host of venues across the city hosting talks and gigs, including Shoreditch venue (and one of our favourites) Village Underground.
The series is hosting some impressive events and there’s some notable milestones; Bleep is celebrating their tenth birthday with a one-off show with Fuck Buttons, Mount Kimbie and Fennesz at the Barbican; Booka Shade are marking the 100th anniversary of the first electronic music concert and Jacques Greene & Koreless will be playing a live show at St John-at-Hackney church. There’s also some exciting talks and exhibitions which include ‘The Photography of Music’ by Bleep and a programme of talks curated by Mixcloud with speakers from The Guardian, Mixcloud, VICE and more.
The focus of the series is on those who use technology to innovate and look to develop unique ways to express their art. Curator, Glenn Max says, “Convergence will celebrate the restless spirit that propels the ongoing dialogue between art and technology. It is an opportunity for like-minded people interested in the convergence of art and technology to come together and recognise a shared sense of optimism and acknowledge the collaborative spirit that carries music into the future.” Which all sounds really rather exciting to us.
One not to miss!
