Workshop - Festival, October 22 - 24, 2022 at Palais Carli, Marseille Conservatory
Improtech is both a musical festival and an interdisciplinary workshop bringing together actors of research and creation from all over the world fostering musical improvisation in interaction with digital intelligences, in an assumed approach of human-machine co-creativity.
After praised editions in New York, Philadelphia and Athens, Improtech @ Marseille ! (ikMA'22) will be held from October 22 to 24, 2022 at the Palais Carli, in the beautiful spaces of the Conservatoire National Pierre Barbizet, along with satellite events in the city during the week of October 17. Furthermore, it will be the tenth anniversary of the creation of Improtech, in NYC in 2012.
A New alliance
Improtech is dedicated to the explosive alliance between the age-old art of improvisation and the emerging cultures of digital intelligence. It fosters the co-creative dynamics that can exist between humans and machines, and in so doing, creates new meeting grounds between people, artists and audiences of all backgrounds and levels.
Exploring the relationships between music and science, composition and improvisation, writing and performance, music and other performance arts in "cyber-human" settings, Improtech has established itself as one of the major events of contemporary research and creation.
For the first time, Improtech will be centered on a major French city: Improtech @ Marseille!
