>>>> new web site for FUTUREsonic event >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

A web site is being set up for FUTUREsonic that will present selections of 
images, video, text and music representative of the event.

Participants are invited to send contributions to haywire@thelabs.demon.co.uk 

These should primarily be of direct relevance to the conference, although we 
also invite samples of other work, and will consider items from non-
participants if we feel that they engage with or are relevant to the themes of 
the conference.

FUTUREsonic is more than just a single event. It is a process of pushing back 
frontiers and forging alliances. It is an opening towards the FUTURE of 
music, art, theory, technology and pleasure.

The web site will be more than just a window on this process. It will be an 
active site of synthesis and dissemination in its own right.

>>>>FUTUREsonic - music and technology conference/event>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Time:  Tuesday 17 September 1996     Place:  backtobasics, Leeds, England

FUTUREsonic is a multi-media symposium that aims to explore a range of themes 
resonating between music, technology and culture. Artists, producers, engineers 
and people working in music, as well as theorists, are invited to take part in 
a space for discussion, live experimental sonics and technical demonstrations. 
The horizons of sonic expression, innovations brought about through technology 
and its creative use, and connected cultural developments in music, are 
particular points of interest. The aim is to create a fertile environment for 
the development and dissemination of new ideas and initiatives, by bringing 
together leading figures from different domains.

::  Talks by leading musicians and producers  ::  Presentations of new and 
mutant technology  ::  Interactive environments and the convergence of media -
