We are glad to welcome (see picture from left to right), Rolf Hellat from micdic, who will show us his invention, special sensors that transforms motion via M4L into MIDI-data. Clockwerk, a legend of finger drumming, will give us an insight view on live performing techniques with Push from sampling and sounddesign to advanced mapping of cells in drumracks. experimental sound artist and beekeeper Bioni Samp will show us his installation Digital Beehive, an audio and visual journey through the sounds and frequencies inside honey-bee hives based on bee frequencies and specially created instruments like the Electronic Beesmoker or the Baby Bee Synth.

Additional artist infos:
Rolf Hellat -
wants to change the way how people interact with music. He is working on a tool to combine music with body movement. A sensor transforms motion into Midi-data in realtime. It empowers the human body to become an instrument itself. In combination with Ableton and Max4Live he will show the actual prototype for the first time in germany.
Jules "Clockwerk" -
is an electronic musician and dedicated live performer who has been around the HipHop scene since 1994. He was one of the first people who played full lenght live sets on MPCs and pad controllers entirely by fingerdrumming and shared stages and studios with many household names of the music scene all over Europe during the past two decades. He is a judge of Europes biggest fingerdrumming competition at SampleMusicFestival Berlin and works with several companys such as Ableton, Akai Pro, Schenker Technologies, SAE Institue and Subpac. Since working with Push2, he established a bunch of techniques for his form of live performance that he wants to share with the world. From sampling, sounddesign, advanced mapping of cells in drumracks to make original soundkits, all the way to several fingerdrumming styles and performance methods.
Bioni Samp -
Digital Beehive is an installation by British experimental sound artist and beekeeper Bioni Samp. As an electronic music producer and seasonal beekeeper, Samp has researched bees and bee frequencies, and makes work to raise awareness about bees and their increasingly fragile ecosystem. This installation is both an audio journey through the sounds and frequencies inside honey-bee hives, and also a visual journey through a non-linear history of beehives, featuring beehives around the world, Samp’s ‘Hive Synthesiser’ (an ever expanding, DIY modular synthesizer made from recycled electrical components), glimpses of Saint Ambrose, the patron saint of beekeepers, and more.
Digital Beehive was created using the following mainly Samp-created instruments: Hive Synthesiser, Electronic Beesmoker, Binaural Beeframe EMF Detector, Baby Bee Synth, Hex Controller and Honey Viscosity Synth, Hive Tool Resonance Detector, and Allen & Heath mixer.
