Time to do some musical racing at Cat Eyed People’s Playground in Copenhagen, Denmark. On Friday 6th of July 5 pm the gallery opens with the musical installation Slot Car Music, and it is time to drive som cars again – racing with the small sounds on the slot car track. Looking forward to hear the sounds again and have a go at the track.

Slot Car Music film

We give you the film from our workshop in Bergen last sumer. Slot Car Music was part of Digital Technology in Arts Education at Western Norway University of Applied Science. This film is a snapshot of all the fun we had. Thank you Centre for New Media for all the work with it.

Digital Technology in Arts Education, DTAE, Bergen Norway

 

A couple of weeks ago we had the opportunity to both be part of and attend the conference Digital Technology in Arts Education DTAE, at Western Norway University of Applied Science, in Bergen Norway. Thanks to a Mobility Funding from the Nordic Culture Point we were able to go there and thanks to an invite from the conference we held a Slot Car Music workshop with the conference participants. A thoroughly inspiring conference, new acquaintances and beautiful surroundings.

Looking forward to 2017

clock

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.

 

Fun and a bit cold

 

Spent the Saturday at Cat Eyed People’s Playground with Slot Car Music Part II. Great fun and nice to have the company of Invisible Sounds and Göteborg Art Sounds (GAS festivalen) at Masthuggskajen. The day was rainy, grey and cold. We got stuck in the rain so we were not ready to open until 1 pm (not 12 as planned) but after that the time run by quickly.

People enjoyed having a go at the track and the synthesisers and even though the track was a bit smaller than last time the sound got really great, almost mediative as the strings of the ‘guitar’ was played and the drums drummed on. Everyone was happy including us 😀

Slot Car Music Part II

The autumn is here but at Cat Eyed People’s Playground we will try to keep the warm summer-spirit at least until December.  This Saturday we will do a part two with Slot Car Music. At the same time the GAS-festival will present the work Invisible Sounds Anders Hultqvist, Stefan Östersjö and Per Sjösten at Masthuggskajen beside us.
