Panel 4: THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS
Society for Arts and Technology [SAT]
THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS: AN ORAL HISTORY OF NECESSARY EVILS
A free-ranging and casual exchange with pioneers from the German techno community, featuring UWE SCHMIDT (aka AtomTM, Señor Coconut etc), THOMAS FEHLMANN (The Orb) and TOBIAS FREUND (Pink Elln, nsi, Sieg Uber Die Sonne).
Led by journalist Philip Sherburne (The Wire), this panel will look back over the careers of three producers who each bring at least two decades of experience to the table -- and continue to map new territory. In the context of the music industry's all-pervasive sense of ennui (aka, the never-ending "crisis"), the artists will explore the creation of artistic illusions, the ethics of the marketplace, the necessary evil of "scenes," What's Wrong With Electronic Music Today, and other light-hearted and amusing topics. Tea will be served
