June 2015 – Urban Gaming and Pixelplay

Bockspringen No. 1 – Urban Gaming in Köln-Deutz

We have a small urban-gardening crew in Köln-Deutz and tried a first event around “playing games at urban sites” called “Bockspringen”. It was a spontaneous, experimental event but lots of people were there. Take away learnings: Urban games are games really at its roots. And the kids later outplayed all the grown ups.

Demoscene for Goodness

Inspired by the demoscene I put together a mixtape of demoscene-music available on Soundcloud. Get yourself a ticket to spacetravel and press play!

Misc?

A.Along the way a sketch of the first Arduino-Harware synth. Dubby conquerors.

B. Last not least I suggest this Book “Making Music – Creative Strategies for Electronic Music Producers” by Dennis DeSantis. It is good for music producers – not only for the ones who use Ableton Live.
