We Are Robots: Future and Innovation of Music
  • The Old Truman Brewery, 91 Brick Lane, Greater London, United Kingdom
    E1 6QR
Following the electric atmosphere of last year's run, We Are Robots will plug back into the Old Truman Brewery to explore the pioneering ideas, movements and technology shaping the future of music.

This year's festival will consist of three days of thought-provoking talks, workshops, and interactive exhibitions, featuring some of the most cutting-edge companies in music technology. Hardware heavyweights Source Distribution and Red Dog Music will be setting up shop in the Old Truman Brewery so expect to get hands-on with a wealth of Moog, Arturia and Modular synthesizers, and other tech yet to be made publicly available. Meanwhile, the Audio Engineering Society will be on hand with a packed schedule of talks and presentations, including "Technologies in Music: How far have we come and where do we go next?".

Masters of minimalism and pocket power, Teenage Engineering will be on site sporting their range of products, including the hotly anticipated OP-Z, the compact, mixed media successor to the iconic OP-1. London-based tech innovators ROLI will also be showing off how they're changing how we make music, one block at a time. Both will offer the opportunity for music lovers to experience the future of music technology themselves through hands-on demonstrations and sessions.

There'll also be the opportunity to experience some amazing live shows brought to you by the legendary Rough Trade, who have curated a fantastic line-up of acts which will be announced soon.
