DUBLIN (PRWEB) October 04, 2019
beatvyne’s Music x Tech Experience returns to Dublin on October 11, 2019 at the Aviva Stadium. Bringing together global leaders and innovators to discuss the future of the entertainment industry, the conference encourages groundbreaking collaborations on the intersection of tech, creative and sustainability.
#MxT2019’s Featured Speakers include Sigur Rós Creative Director Sarah Hopper, Magic Leap Alumni Stephen Mangiat, IBM Telco, Media and Entertainment Lead Alison Davis, Lollapalooza Berlin Festival Director Fruszina Szép, Music and Film Producer/Director Count Eldridge, Beat Games Co-Founder Jaroslav Beck, Adobe Senior Experience Designer Susse Sønderby and many more.
“We live in a rapidly changing world,” emphasises Kenn Davis, CEO of the Music x Tech Experience. “beatvyne’s Music x Tech Experience offers an exciting opportunity to keep up to speed on current developments that are redefining all sectors working with music and sound, and to find the next big breakthroughs by getting together with the leading technologists, entrepreneurs and creative professionals. Even if you’re not an expert in tech, understanding its limitations and applying creative to it can open a range of possibilities. The most important part, we believe, is to look outside of your own sector and see what can be adapted from other industries in order to make products and services more relevant, efficient and sustainable by adopting a ‘fan’-centric approach.”
The Music x Tech Experience is organised into 10 programming tracks, covering key topics such as the Psychology of Sound, Artificial Intelligence, 5G and Extended Reality, Voice Control and Spatial Audio, Blockchain, New Live Experiences, Smart Production, Legislation in the Digital Age and more.
“A second digital revolution is setting the bar for a more sustainable, efficient and experimental ecosystem. The most important and defining factor for all these innovations however is the behaviour and expectation of the end consumer, the fan,” says Isabel Thomas, co-founder of the Music x Tech Experience. “From learnings about the emotional feedback towards noise pollution in cities and the use of music for wellbeing, over expectations into the sound of your newly purchased electric vehicle, VR and live experiences to the infrastructures that surround and power them: #MxT2019 aims to leverage technology for a smart future that enhances the human experience on all aspects of the entertainment and media industry.”
With the central theme, ‘Music is in everything,’ #MxT2019 highlights how music permeates through many facets of our lives, it’s influence on our behaviour and its use across multiple disciplines, from video games, to sports, advertising, design, film, health tech, finance and more.
The event features hands-on, immersive experiences, talks by the world’s leading companies and disruptors, intimate Q&A sessions and workshops, networking opportunities to collaborate on groundbreaking ideas as well as music performances by the best emerging artists from across Europe.
An overview of the event is available through the #MxT2019 trailer.
Immersive showcases include the first ever AI-Artist live performance in Ireland as well as Extended Reality experiences such as a VR Cinema, and follow in the footsteps of great experiences such as Björk Digital’s “Not Get” VR and Gorillaz’ “Saturnz Barz” VR experience which were on display in 2018.
A curated line-up of the best emerging artists will play on multiple stages at the #MxT2019 Launch Party in Dublin’s iconic Windmill Lane Recording Studios on October 10, as well as the MxT ‘Hive Stage’ on October 11.
