Every time we assemble a diverse group of brilliant and talented people from the wider MTF community, something happens beyond even our high expectations. A jaw-dropping moment. We keep seeing it: not just a clever invention or a brilliant performance – those are a given – but a genuine breakthrough.
At our recent #MTFLabs: Industry Commons pilot at Slush in Helsinki, blockchain tech, intellectual property and the rights of creative innovators took centre stage – literally.
We spent an amazing #MTFLabs week at the end of November with some of the most brilliant people you could imagine – most of whom had never met or worked together before, and yet managed to put together an incredible orchestrated performance in just a few days…
Music Tech Fest today announced the launch of a new innovation management methodology – The Industry Commons.
New technologies are often blamed for an array of societal problems including precarious employment, economic exclusion and social division. Innovations don’t just affect us as consumers, but as citizens. The reason for this is clear, but all too often overlooked: all technologies are human technologies.
For the past five years, the MTF community has been exploring the intersection between music and innovation. It’s key to what we do at Music Tech Fest, and the innovation that comes out of this space often goes far beyond musical performance.
In Liège, we gathered 14 young people aged between 12 and 16 and spent the day with them building handmade musical instruments, software and devices.
