Future Everything #1

Attending the Future Everything conference (http://futureeverything.org) with its theme for 2012 ‘Future Everybody’ gave me a fascinating overview of what’s current in the digital sector. The conference was described as exploring the interface between technology, society and culture, and it was a really valuable in that it enabled me to connect to and deepen my thinking around the digital.

I attended a few events in the festival programme too. SuperCriticalMass’ Voices was an atmospheric sound performance which took place in Manchester Cathedral on Fri 18th May. The performance was a meditative experience; a chorus of voices, singing long slow tones, which resonated with each other and were sometimes discordant. The context of the performance, the building itself was integral to the piece, with the performers carefully positioned in between columns, whilst the audience moved about whilst watching and listening.
