DigitalSoul events
Our events are created by a collective of graphical and audio artists and promoters from all over the place. We work on the principle of collaboration. The results can be unusual but are always exciting - basically an excellent laugh. You'll hear as diverse a selection of sounds as anywhere and see a mixed mash of sights. Many have cried but none have EVER fallen asleep at a gig except me, but I was so comfortable I thought I was at home in bed.

S.O. BAR bOURNEMOUTH - 18.03.2004.1530.0200.

flyer This event looked at how computers are being used to perform ‘live’ music. Our attempt to express human gesture through digital media is one way of defining our era. Music is the perfect arena to explore this issue as it divides purists and experimentalists in equal measure (eg ‘Keep Music Live’ vs the DJ). The subject was approached through live performance and discussion of music using technology – from high-end studios to lo-fi equipment. We hope we intrigued artists, students and clubbers alike by offering them something more thought provoking than a rave or club night, and more stimulating then a lecture.

The event was divided into 3 areas; master-classes and seminars during the day, performances and sets in the evening and long-term through the online forum. Dance or electronic orientated artists (certainly those that attended this event) tend to have particularly strong and informed views on the work they produce and the issues surrounding production so it made for interesting viewing and listening.

We were prepared to have our thoughts provoked and our ears stimulated by the finest music philosophers, live dj's and performers. In 2004 DigitalSoul and The Arts Institute of Bournemouth invited the gurus of electronic music to present their views and demonstrate their skills to a tuned-in crowd.

Kicking off in March with 'Expressing Computers’, we looked at how 'live' sets and performances are delivered through digital media. We considered those 'moments' of bliss on the dancefloor, the connection with the DJ, the complexity of gesture and expression, the mess of composition and the accident of creating music within the world of the 'live' PA.

We started the day by relaxing on the comfy couches of Bar SO in Bournemouth in the company of some of the most ground-breaking ambient, techno, electro, experimental and generally far-out music producers around. We had a drink while they offered their thoughts on the meaning of 'live' then pondered the creation of sound over a delicious lunch. We took a break as we watched the experts who design the software and hardware instruments demonstrate their wares. We met others as we signed up for a master class with a favourite artist. After being well and truly inspired, we went crazy, lived for the moment and played back 2 back with the others as the doors opened for the night-time crowd. Then to finish it all off we danced the night away to the cutting edge sounds of our mentors, the live PA.
