André Wakko hosting Cocktails & Synth
Friday 21 June / Top Floor / 19:00–21:00
Activity / General Admission
The concept of this event was initiated by Bernd Plontsch, who had the wish to combine two of the greatest inventions in the world; Coffee & Synths!
For Agora Collects we adapt ths great idea into a festive concept hosted by André Wakko.
This is how it works: Bring your iPhone, OP-1, Animoog, Nintendo DS, MPC or any other mobile music device or app and join the open session.
There will be four tables set up, and each table will host three people that will jam together for a session of 15 minutes. Each table will be hosted by an artist that will lead, suggest and guide the group in its musical journey.
The event will have the needed infrastructure but feel free to bring any portable sound device equipped with a headphone jack.
The second and very important aspect of the event, cocktails, will be hosted by a fresh cocktailbar hosted by Hecate.
Cocktails & Synths will be hosted by André Wakko. André is a composer, sound designer, software developer, installation artist and multimedia performer. His work is an investigation of computer music, sonic space and generative art. His explorations are rooted in academic sound research as well as in club culture.
He explore identities, materials and behavior in interactive sound installations and audio-visual performances.
The developing process in his work is part of an artistic production and the documentation thru objects, photographs and videos culminates into a sensitive memory of the work.
