Beat Tech Fest brings together the people behind electronic and digital music instruments/tools and music producers and beatmakers. It is a celebration of the informal dialog between technology and culture.
Conceptually speaking, Beat Tech Fest seeks to challenge and inspire the aesthetics of innovation, by way of appropriation. If innovation (and creativity in general) is a social process, how can it be organized? Where and when does innovation happen? How does creativity emerge? And What does that emergence look like?
These questions are approached by doing. In practice, the events are organized at different locations, in different scales, and in collaboration with a variety of actors; creatives, institutions and tech companies.
