I’m very pleased to be a Mentor / Speaker on the KYUB Innovative Sonic Culture programme for Ukrainian artists, that is running from December 2022 through to Spring 2023.
As part of this I gave the lecture “New Horizons: creative tools, connections, communities” in 2022, looking at new music tech, and opportunities in AI, VR and more.
It was followed by a great discussion with the participants, and I’m looking forward to their online residency work, and final event.
“KYUB is a new collaboration programme between the Institute of Sound in Ukraine & IKLECTIK funded by The House of Europe. Originally initiated just before the invasion of Ukraine and therefore halted, it recommenced in December 2022, with an open call for 15 Ukrainian artists based in Ukraine and working in experimental music to be a part of an online residency.
The core aim of this initiative is to create new network opportunities, increase engagement internationally & promote cultural diversity whilst boosting Ukrainian visibility within the music industry.
Each of the 15 selected artists will attend online workshops developed in collaboration with Music Hackspace and Ableton alongside public talks, panel discussions with established academics and music professionals and be asked to create a new sonic piece specifically for the project.
The tracks will be featured on a release & be a part of the final online KYUB event, streamed live from IKLECTIK [UK] and Gasoline Radio [UA].”
