The ACADIA 2010 conference at The Great Hall at Cooper Union starts later this week on Thursday, October 21st and runs through October 24th. The conference will focus on the changing nature of information and its impact on architectural education, research and practice. With the ever-increasing integration of information technologies in the design laboratory, the discipline of architecture has changed profoundly in recent years. The emerging fields of digital fabrication, generative and evolutionary modeling among others, are now at the core of investigations in a growing community of digital design practitioners and researchers.

Dubspot is the proud sponsor of the live performance and visualization aspect of the ACADIA conference. On October 23rd at The Great Hall at Cooper Union, a three-hour event that will bring together architecture students with musicians and technologists who have pushed the limits of software, stretching the status-quo of digital production to a technical “breaking point.” The event will host 20 students who have competed across the New York Tri-State region to offer a platform for their talent in spontaneous 4-minute interval presentations. Student innovation will be bolstered by DJs, producers, technologists, and visualization artist performances by some of New York’s leading talent in music production industry, including turntablists and members of  legendary New York DJ crew the X-Ecutioners Rob Swift and DJ Precision, Create Digital Music‘s Peter Kirn, Dubspot Instructors; Native Instruments product specialist Mike Henderson aka DJ Endo, and music technologist Zemi17. The event is open to the public, a showcase of talent you do not want to miss!
