We've been itching to announce all that's in store for Thursday 14 July. Here are full details of the programme for our Make, Do and Bend One-Dayer...
Our six hour day in the heart of the King's Cross creative campus will include:
- Two big-picture panels, one focused on the direction of travel for live music and technology, and the other exploring what good digital R&D looks like
- Postcards from the future of how composition, live music and digital technologies will interact
- Tasting menu sessions, where some of the biggest innovators in the country share their favourite live performance and digital projects
- Hands on demo opportunities… your chance to explore how VR, augmented reality, 3D audio and the internet of things could provide new directions for your gigs and performances
- Workshops exploring some of the ideas developed in our Ideas Lab
'Who's going to be there?', I hear you ask:

Remember, tickets are free but space is limited so you need to book your place here. There’s a £10 deposit which will be refunded when you attend. (Why? Because free events can be sold-out but then under-attended.) We can't wait and hope you'll be able to join us.
