DIGI SECTION, a digital technology and music symposium, artist Q&As, panels, presentations, and workshops, presents the center-piece of the free day-time program. This year sees a variety of artist Q&As and panels on creation processes, cross-cultural collaboration and creative mindsets, as well as workshops such as Derivative’s TouchDesigner.

Always open to the public as part of the festival’s free daytime program, DIGI SECTION is a gathering that explores the links between creativity, whether it be musical, technological or philosophical, in a discursive and inviting context. It offers opportunities to hear directly from artists and creators, inventors, technologists and industry professionals with the aim of demystifying practices and connecting audiences with stories of personal careers, creation and insight, while providing an outlet for the larger issues facing our community and strengthening the links between festival goers and artists. Combining workshops, presentations, showrooms, panels, meetings and onstage interviews DIGI LAB is a rich mixture of events that cater to the experienced professional, the emerging artist, and the curious observer.

All activities of the day time program are held at Miraikan – The National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation and are free of charge.

We are happy to announce the second MUTEK.JP TouchDesigner workshop!

Instructors Greg Hermanovic and Ben Voigt (from Derivative) show you how to use TouchDesigner to create media art installations and applications. Also joined by Isabelle Rousset (Community Manager at Derivative) and special guests of the TouchDesigner community, this extended 2-day event is the chance of the year to dive deep into the world of TouchDesigner.

TouchDesigner is the visual development platform used to create such spectacular works as
Deep Web, Alien Convenant, Tokyo Art City, Captured Atmospheres, Maotik’s Light Bearers, Amon Tobin ISAM
.
This workshop is hands-on and students are required to bring their own laptop running TouchDesigner to follow along.

There will be 2 groups:

Beginner/novice group - Instructor Led Lessons - Covering a general introduction to TouchDesigner, creating audio visualizations, and working with devices and projectors. Some free-experimenting ‘lab-time’ end of each day. (30 capacity)

Intermediate/Advance group - Touch Create Sessions - alone or in groups work on self-driven projects of your choice. Learn, create, debug, and troubleshoot together with Derivative staff and local artists. Projects will be presented at the end of the 2nd day. (30 capacity)

Local and international TouchDesigner-MUTEK performers will be giving artist talks throughout the 2 days.

The workshop will be in English and Japanese.
