Beats & Ord visits Oslo

tos

On the 10th of October Beats & Ord will take part in Music Technology Days 2017 (Musikkteknologidagene 2017) at the Norweigan Academy of Music (Norges musikkhøgskole) in Oslo, Norway. Beats & Ord will be presented in a new and more refined version that is all digital, using video instead of physical signs.  It will be great fun and interesting to meet the public, and see the installation in action again.

Time to start kicking of the spring and summer events. We start of with a special edition of Beats & Ord at Brunnen, as part of the International Science Festival in Gothenburg the 12th, 13th and 14th of May (next weekend).

On the Friday evening we open the exhibition with Beats & Afterword. Saturday morning we begin with buckets of coffee and breakbeats, Breakbeats for Breakfast. Sunday we finish of with Beats outside the Box.

And if that was not enough we also take part in the School Programme with a 90 minutes workshop-version of WordJam.

So we will keep ourselves busy 🙂

March and already April

 

CEPP

It has been a couple of hectic months and all of a sudden it was April. During February and March we hosted four Word Jams at Brunnen. We could have wished for more participants but other than that it were brilliant and creative events. At present we are evaluating and working with the reports for the funding we received.

Next time will be during the International Science Festival Gothenburg in May when we will guide six school-classes through the word-jam-jungle. That will be great fun!

During the festival we also host three events together with Brunnen all with a focus on hip hop and our exhibition Beats & Ord.

At the end of May we are of to Bergen, Norway, with Slot Car Music were we will participate in the conference Digital Technology in Arts Education.

Last but not least we have repainted Cat Eyed People’s Playground so that it is ready for take off in June.

Looking forward to 2017

The last months have been hectic and a bit chaotic. But now with the end of 2016 approaching we can conclude that we did not win the lottery this year either but learned more than money can buy and had fun while learning (and lacking sleep at times).

2017 already have a bunch of dates crossed in the calendar – feels great!

To begin with Cat Eyed People’s Playground will stay at Masthuggskajen, at least for part of 2017, for how long we will know during January when the contract is signed.

WordJam will take place in Gothenburg during the first part of the year. Thanks to additional support from Pronto, City of Gothenburg, 2 or 3  Swedish WordJam will held before mid-April.

WordJam together with Beats & Ord will then be part of The International Science Festival Gothenburg May 8 – 19, both as a part of the School Programme and as a part of the Public Programme.

In the end of May Slot Car Music head of to Bergen, Norway, where Cat Eyed People will host a workshop at and participate in the conference Digital Technology in Arts Education.

At Cat Eyed People’s Playground the exhibitions and playfulness will continue and a new exhibition will open in the beginning of next year.
