Resonate – The Best Kind of Noise

The cutting edge of contemporary creative industry met in Belgrade for RESONATE 2013, three days of intensive networking, information, knowledge sharing and education. Live coding, sensing touch, audio reactive mapping, digital kaleidoscope, augment anything, motors and music, open frameworks & asymmetric game design are just some of the workshops. Resonate brings artists together into a forward-looking debate on the position of technology in art and culture, from software engineering to visual arts theory, and aims to create a bridge between culturally separated segments of the artistic and intellectual scene.

We want to show that future is in the hands of those willing to experiment, individuals with simple desire to feed their inquisitive nature for knowledge and experience. We do not know what the future holds but the only way to find out is to create a platform where the most inspiring individuals can meet and share their ideas. Whereas internet has given us power to communicate to many, we need more events like Resonate where these ideas can flourish and “resonate”.

Excellent online archive where you can watch all the talks from last year and the latest as they happen.
