Daedelus at a BV SXSW day party (more by Tim Griffin)

We are curious, just like you. Because of this, we decided to bring those that inspire, move, and challenge us together to write, make, perform, and teach.

Musicians and artists huddled together to learn and share the secrets of computers. How to make them do the things we dream, how to control them to do those things, and hopefully stumble across some happy accidents along the way.

So join us for a time of sharing, learning, and experimenting in creating computer programs and designing control interfaces for audio and video performances. Let us rejoice in all things open source!

As you can tell by the description above, the In/Out Fest, which goes down in Brooklyn from 11/11-11/13, is primarily concerned with the collision of music and technology.

Workshops will take place at Death By Audio from 11/11 - 11/13, while showcases will be spread across two days at Knitting Factory -- 11/11 and 11/12.

11/11 will see a headlining performance from Daedelus with Comandante Zero, Ander, n0izmkr, PROGRAMS, tehn, and Sarah Dahnke/Round Tuit Dance Project, while 11/12 will see Bit Shifter with Super Mario Brothers 2, Island Dweller, Ivan Franco, Figure Zero, Smomid, Portable Sunsets, and Christopher Willits. Tickets are available in both single day increments (Friday, Saturday) or two day pass form (select two day pass at either of the previous links). In addition, you can help support the festival by donation.

In/Out is not to be confused with the Brooklyn Electronic Music Festival which happens this weekend too and with some of the same artists.

More details on the festival, including the flyer and a video, are below...
