lab30 – 9th Augsburg Media Art Laboratory (Nov 4th-Nov 6th, 2010) presents

See it, hear it, feel it

lab30, Augsburg’s Media Arts Festival, is going to take place this year for the 9th time. From November 4th to November 6th, Kulturhaus abraxas in Augsburg will be transformed into an international arts laboratory for media and installation artists, for sound, electronics, technicians and digitals artists who make up the offspring of the European arts academy scene. This festival of electronic arts has found its level within the relevant festival landscape, moving on from being an insider’s tip to becoming a constant in the yearly agenda of visitors and artists who travel the scene.
For lab30 2010, over 100 presentations from all over Europe reached the city of Augsburg’s cultural department (Kulturamt). The team of curators has chosen 30 installations, sound experiments and visuals that can now be visited, looked at, played with, worked on in the exhibition or experienced live on stage in three densely packed festival days. The "lab award" will again be given to one of the most innovative exhibits. After the big success in 2008 and 2009, lab30 is also open on saturday afternoon.
Already legendary: the IndieTronica Club Nights at abraxas Nordflügel and Kantine (Kulturpark West). They feature electronic web sounds, hand-made song structures, ingenious soundscapes and digitally animated tracks, all of them presented in a structure that moves between DJing, computer live performance and analogue showcase.
