Inspired by a trade fair scene in the 1974 Francis Ford Coppola film
“The Conversation”, jumble sales and the excellent Make magazine maker faires, Interface Amnesty plays with the conventions of interface design, music technology products and
the presentation of interactive art.

Invited artists hobbyists and makers show and tell self made, developed and hacked devices for playing sound and music on Saturday day and evening in a free trade fair/market style setting at STATIC.

Come and play with the artists wares and see key lunchtime and evening show-offs and performances with food and drink available at the lovely STATIC bar and café.

Featuring PIXELH8 Artist and Techno anthropologist with a FREE BETA release of his Tech Pro Performer Synthesiser for Nintendo DS and Nintendo Gameboy. Come along and make your DS the envy of all your friends!

There is an emerging & developing sector and a growing scene of artists, hobbyists and makers in the UK experimenting with electronics and DIY interaction design often beyond multimedia & music academia and crossing over into sound art, new music and the moving image.
Its an opportunity for sharing between artists, musicians and the
public with live music, food stalls and that elusive country fair
feeling
