Dubspot is proud to partner with Flavorpill and Windows this year to promote culture, technology and wellness at South By Southwest Interactive 2013 by presenting Sanctuary: a music and technology oasis featuring refreshments for body and mind as well as performances and music tech demos by artists including Classixx, The Juan MacLean, Neon Indian, Reggie Watts and Dirty Projectors…
Sanctuary will be a place to relax, take a refreshing break from the South By Southwest madness and check out the latest music technology, an SXSW Interactive oasis featuring yoga and workout classes, massages and fresh juices daily from March 9th through 12th and held at the Austin Museum of Art: Arthouse.
Start with a healthy breakfast brought to you by Kind and DJed by Natasha Blank before selecting from workout, yoga and spin classes, and then end the afternoon with performances from The Juan MacLean (Sat), Classixx (Sun), Neon Indian w/ Reggie Watts (Mon) and Dirty Projectors (Tue).
Windows will have Acer S7 laptops onsite running Windows 8 with the latest DJ software from Serato, Ableton and Traktor, hooked up to a state-of-the-art Funktion One soundsystem. The Acer S7 is a lightweight, ultrathin rival to the MacBook Air that features a built-in touchscreen, opening up new possibilities for controlling your favorite music apps.
We encourage our community to come out to The Sanctuary to have a chance to get under the hood of tomorrow’s technology today and find out why artists like Four Tet are integrating the S7 into their DJ setups. Grab a juice, stretch a bit, demo the Acer S7 and then enjoy a featured artist.
Sanctuary takes place March 9 through 12 at the Austin Museum of Art: Arthouse, Jones Center, 700 Congress Ave, Austin, TX. Healthy food and workout events are scheduled for the mornings, with the music performances at 1:30pm most days. For a full schedule of events and links to RSVP for different sessions head to Flavorpill.
AMOA: Arthouse will also be hosting the SXSW Interactive 2013 Twitter #FEED House, billed as an “interactive experience at the intersection of art, technology and social media.” The #FEED House was a hit at SXSW Interactive 2012 and should be worth checking out again this year. Dubspot Visual Performance course designer V Owen Bush of Glowing Pictures will be VJing all 5 nights of #FEED so be sure to stop by. Glowing Pictures also designed the motion branding for #FEED 2013.
