Panel – 5. September

Using an iPad to Make Music Intuitively

13:00 - 15:00

Antje Greie-Ripatti, best known as AGF, lives and works in Hailuoto, Finland. She’s the initiator and artistic director of the “Hai Art” cultural platform in Hailuoto, where she also directs the iPad orchestra that she brought to life. She’s bringing this concept to Berlin for both adults and children as part of the VUT Indie Days. Here, it’s not about making music in the traditional sense, it’s more about the intuitive, playful discovery of sounds.

The German electronic music producer AGF (Antye Greie-Ripatti) also coordinates a children’s iPad orchestra on the Finish island she calls home. She works with 5 to 14 year olds making mobile electronic music in a sound lab and in nature. She has also created sound and music apps with the local primary school and a code artist, as well as developing an app based on field recording. “Sound Map Hailuoto” can be downloaded free of charge in app stores.

Now she’s bringing these experiences to Germany. In a two hour workshop, she will introduce 20 fantastic iOS music apps that are just as interesting for novices as for professional music producers.

The workshop can be attended by guest of all ages, ranging from 3 to 70 years old. The main thing is that there is an iPad or iPhone and headphones or mini-speakers between two participants. The workshop is also suitable for teachers and other workshop leaders, as well as all who are interested in sharing this technology.
