wetgenes, the feral games developers and the creative technologists behind DRIFT (part of the touring OUTLANDS experimental music network, Tour 3 ) will be gently introducing the OpenGL Shading Language in a workshop at STEAMhouse, Birmingham.


Participants will be creating their own interactive digital pieces responding to improvised movement and sound in this workshop presented by Supersonic Festival as part of the Outlands touring experimental music network. 
No prior programming knowledge is required to benefit from the session!

Participants are advised to bring a laptop with a working camera and microphone. You will be using ShaderToy for the entire duration of the workshop. Modern laptops should be able to load the website but please check before coming.

This workshop is part of OUTLANDS upcoming UK Tour: DRIFT ft. KYOKA / GRISCHA LICHTENBERGER / YTAC


wetgenes are Bradford-based duo and long-term collaborators Shi and Kriss. They are self taught fierce believers of simple, open and accessible tech for all. Their recent work has explored neuroscience and synaesthesia, including developing an interactive installation experimenting with sound through touch, visuals and movement via augmented reality using sand, commissioned by the National Science and Media Museum.

The workshop will be taking place at STEAMhouse, a new centre for creative and collaborative innovation and cultural production. Developed by Birmingham City University in partnership with Eastside Projects, and funded by the European Reginal Development Fund and Arts Council England, STEAMhouse runs a range of programmes and houses facilities including co-working and project spaces and the Production Space – a substantial, new makerspace with equipment and technicians to support production and prototyping in a range of media.

Spaces are VERY limited. Email to grab a spot...
