Hacked Human Orchestra
Join us as we blend soft fabric electronics with creative technologists to transform your threads into wearable musical instruments. Come hack your outfit: learn to stitch synths into shirts, turn trousers into trumpets and redesign dresses into drums and help create the world’s first mobile electronic human orchestra. In the final act, we will assemble en masse for an impromptu orchestral performance unlike any other, led by composer Florian Lunaire who will score our singular soundtrack as we wind our way throughout the festival. Produced in collaboration with tech artists MzTEK and sponsored by the Royal Academy of Engineering.
Check out this short film by the manager at our headquarters The Centre For Creative Collaboration, Debbie Davies, to get a better idea for how it’s all come together…
Future Cinema presents: Bugsy Malone
We’ll be joining the Friday night site takeover by the Future Cinema with our medieval-style catapults for a grand finale unlike any you’ve ever seen! Come see us get messy Friday night.
Join us as we tango with Spiritualized, Wilco, The Midnight Masked Ball with the Old Vic Tunnels, spas, banquets, lakes and debates at one of Britain’s newest, loveliest festivals – a bit like the sophisticated, chilled-out big sister of the Secret Garden Party.
