Two months in advance of #MTFBerlin, a group of artists, designers, hackers and makers gathered on a quest to create a new icon for the music industry. The result was a series of concepts, including ‘Smokification’ by Anouk Wipprecht for Viktoria Modesta and ‘Sonified carbon fibre body suit’ by Selina Bond and Adam John Williams.
This series is a collaboration between several artists and makers under the creative direction of Viktoria Modesta and Joanna Hir. Carbon fibre body by Selina Bond with shoes by Iris van Herpen X United Nude and creative concept for electronics by Anouk Wipprecht, sonification of the carbon fibre body by Adam John Williams. Prosthetic by the Alternative Limb Project. Photography by Nhu Xuan Hua. Styled by Joanna Hir, assisted by David Asmutis. MUA by Lan Nguyen-Grealis, hair Kim Roy, and set design Helen Sirp & Lisa Jahovic. Produced by Michela Magas and Viktoria Modesta.
Between the 23rd and the 27th of May 2016, some of these amazing minds joined specially invited artists, makers, designers and inventors to explore interactive performance and ‘Music as Extension of the Human Body’ in a secret chamber of the legendary Funkhaus. Results of this collaboration were accessible by hackers on Friday 27th and audiences on Saturday 28th of May, during #MTFBerlin.
The results of the week-long blockchain laboratory were showcased at the festival. Industry insiders had an exclusive preview of new #MusicBricks products and startup ideas at the #MTFAmplifier networking event that brought together the entire music tech business ecosystem.

The MTF ecosystem includes music innovation, sonic arts, music hacking and making, music as a tool of social inclusion and social change, and projects that use music technology in media, medicine, public space, everyday life and transversally across industries beyond the normal reach of music. The #MTFResearch Network explores these ideas in the symposium on Monday 30th, following the festival. The 4-day ticket provides entry to the symposium and membership of the international research network as well as the full weekend festival programme.
