Futurism and Techno: A Discussion With Techno’s Originator Juan Atkins
15:30 - 16:15
DeLaMar Theater (D5 Panel Room) | Marnixstraat 402, Amsterdam
What do a small group of innovators in Detroit manipulating and repurposing physical tools such as record players and speakers, synthesizers and drum machines, have to do with world-renowned physicists working to crack open the matter mysteries of the universe?
These three thought leaders will discuss their parallel trajectories; of transport to alternate realms through experimentation, theory and practice, repeating and refining until breakthrough and transcendent revelation occurs. The session will be an examination of the way this music relates to the universe itself, and of the ways in which Techno’s cosmic nature has formed such a compelling call to motion across the globe as we collectively contend with ever-accelerating global change. Futurism, vibrations, particles, matter, frequency, amplitude, motion, communion…..join us as these explorers reveal their journeys into sound and space.
