If you haven't heard of Johannes great Kickstarter success through the grapevine, Wednesday will be your chance to hear all about it :)
We are very happy that we could get an evening of Johannes busy schedule. So come, listen and ask the man questions.
So, what is dadamachines?
dadamachines is a Berlin-based studio launching the automat toolkit, a MIDI-controlled music toolkit that allows anyone, regardless of music skill level, to turn the real world into their instrument.
The core of the toolkit is the automat, an arduino-compatible plug-and-play MIDI-controller with 12 DC outputs. The automat can be used with your favorite music so ware or hardware. The toolkit includes the automat and a series of solenoid beaters that plug in to 12 outputs allowing you to tap, ping and knock on anything.
Who is behind dadamachines?
dadamachines is the project of Berlin-based Creative Technologist and DJ – Johannes Lohbihler, a product design graduate from Weißensee School of Art and Design, Berlin. Johannes grew up in Bavaria, hailing from a ine of seven generations of carpenters. Growing up among the Weilheim music scene that included acts such as the Notwist, Lali Puna and Acid Pauli - Johannes was interested in music from early on. He started DJing and found inspiration to bring together electronic music production and analog tools - combining his background as a cra sman and passion for music. During his masters stu- dies in interaction design, Johannes began developing a simple plug-and-play kit that made music machines accessible to everyone – that project became dadamachines.
