This is the nickname for the South by Southwest festival, one of the new acquaintances from this awesome experience. Sleepless nights/days overtaken by compelling references, some already covered at the conferences, workshops and networking during the interactive week, others from the music field – something like 1900 bands, an insane challenge worth the try!

From the dinosaurs Motorhead at Austin Music Hall,

to the irreverent rock proposals at the British Music Embassy “Latitude 30” with the General Fiasco among others,

the AMODA Digital Showcase experimental approach by the Portuguese Heitor Alvelos, Anselmo Canha and João Cruz at Club de Ville with “Futureplaces @ SXSW”, the Portuguese David Fonseca at the panoramic top floor of the Hilton Graden Inn releasing his new album “Between Waves”, a collection of songs inspired by life on the road and its highs and lows,

and Belmont’s non-stop 12 am-2 pm free access parallel music festival

to all kinds of downtown Austin bars – Maggie Mae’s,

Darwin’s country style,

Speakeasy,

Buffallo Billiards, and the fancy Dixties, just walk by and feel the beat! The photos can give you a quite vivid idea, but you have to experience it by yourself!

I’m looking forward to work towards coming back next year, hopefully with a presentation regarding RTiVISS ongoing research issues on real-time video experiments in digital interactive environments – I’ll let you know when the time comes, stay tuned ;)
