In the framework of its programme “Chaging industries”, the British Council supports the visit to Sónar+D of Andrew Melchior who will share a conversation on stage with Robert Del Naja, musician, visual artist and visible face of Massive Attack.
Andrew Melchior has been connecting music and technology since the 90s when, among other endeavors, helped David Bowie to create his website and e-commerce, and a virtual world way before Second Life. More recently he was technical advisor for the exhibition Björk Digital, and he produced the Fantom app for Massive Attack. But the collaboration with the Bristolians didn’t end up here; Melchior has been appointed Chief Technology Officer of the band, and his mission is to introduce them to the most innovative technologies.
Both will talk about the connection between music and technology that has a potential yet to be discovered. Music and technology are a regular couple: music challenges technology and pushes its limits, while technology provides artists with tools to build new languages.
