Ahead of Mycelia going on a World Tour Autumn 2018-2019, we organised the Mycelia World Tour Pilot. Here we officially revealed our tour plans and launched the Creative Passport.
In the fancy (but slightly chilly) Tipis, after Imogen’s opening keynote (some of it is featured below), followed two guests speakers Vanessa Reed (PRS Foundation) and Vinay Gupta (Mattereum). Following and discussing the keynote, was a panel consisting of Cliff Fluet – moderator (Eleven, Lewis Silkin LLP), Eva Kaili (Member of the European Parliament), Sammy Andrews (CEO & Founder at Deviate Digital) Panos Panay (Berklee College of Music, OMI) and Zoe Keating (Cellist, Composer and Independent Artist Advocate).
During late afternoon, in The Round House, people explored the exhibits showcasing the mi.mu gloves system, Dolby Atmos, Imogen’s residential studio, Life of a Song Project, TheWaveVR experience and Streemliner.
The evening continued in The Barn with Imogen and Frou Frou’s performance powered by the 360 soundscape system from D&B Audiotechnik and closed with an awesome set by Tim Exile!
Keynote by Imogen Heap: It’s time we got music makers and their works open (data) for business. Curated data leads to pretty much everything these days and when something you need can’t be found, someone, somewhere is losing out. Let’s get music ready for all it can give to the world for generations to come.
