Subject: [spectre] Brighton Digital Festival - 1-30 September - 1st announcement

Dear spectres,

I just wanted to give you some advanced notice about a new community-run festival we're helping to put together here in Brighton.

I hope some of you will be able to join us for some of the exciting exhibitions, performances, conferences and workshops we're planning this September, which will bring together leading international artists such as Blast Theory, semiconductor, Ben Frost and Random Dance, alongside thinkers and storytellers like Don Norman (Design of Everyday Things) and Matthew Sheret (last.fm).

There's an introduction to a few of the projects we're presenting below, and we'll be releasing more information in the coming weeks and months.

Best wishes,

Honor Harger

Improving Reality

A one-day conference that shows how artists and designers are working with digital technologies to radically re-engineer the world in which we exist. Thinkers and makers from the technology, film, education and art worlds will explore how the current generation of makers is not only attempting to augment reality, but rather to go one step further, and improve reality.
Organised by Lighthouse, it features Julian Oliver, Tassos Stevens (Agency of Coney), Matt Adams (Blast Theory), Alice Taylor (Makieworld), Matt Hanson and many many others.

- FAR by Random Dance

Wayne McGregor's Random Dance is a truly ground-breaking dance company, incorporating digital technologies into live choreography. This all embracing approach has led to a string of truly unique works. FAR is is danced by an ensemble of ten incredible performers and set to a new, haunting score by critically acclaimed composer, Ben Frost.
