LoveTech presents LearnTech

learntech_logo_470w

Old friend and “controllerism” evangelist Matt Moldover is one of the founding members of a new group called LoveTech that has been throwing various interesting events in the last couple of months dealing with music and technology. Their previous gatherings have been mostly performances out in various warehouses in the nether regions of San Francisco, tomorrow night they are presneting LearnTech, more of a Salon based event where electronic music practioners can meet and unravel some of the mystery behind their craft. There have been a great many of these electronic music “salon” type of events springing up recently with my own Overlap.org Max/MSP/Jitter/Live Salon, the BArCMuT meetup group events, and this new event, but LearnTech is worth keeping an eye on as their events have an different vibe than the previous.

Of note at this event are Vlad Spears, who presented an excellent controller + Max combo at the Overlap Salon last month, and Preshish Moments, whose custom MIDI Controller + software combo has produced some of the most interesting beat oriented music I’ve seen that is really live controlled. If you didn’t have plans on Tuesday night, don’t miss this event.

Digital Jam Lounge by Rich DDT and Twiita:
Bring your laptop, synth, or any electronic instrument, plug in and play! A perfect environment to teach one another new music hardware and software.

Moderated by Rich DDT

Education and interaction have been integral parts of LoveTech since the beginning, with 1 hour workshops at the start of every event, interactive multimedia art installations, and a Digital Jam Lounge for trying out new audio (and visual) hardware and software and becoming a part of the performance. LearnTech expands on this idea by having engaging performers/presenters demonstrate their audio (or visual) craft and explore the technology behind it in an engaging and discussion friendly workshop, connecting the brilliant minds in our hyper creative community in a stimulating and fun environment.

Our 2-story location features mixed media art and a full service bar

This event is absolutely FREE :)
21+ only
