In 2017, SeaNaps has been the setting for 3 conferences, at the crossing between ideas and actions.
A reflection on the past, the now and the fate of tools, economies and cultures.
Friday the 8th / Grassimuseum stage / 18:30H:
The concert of Rabih Beaini on Friday the 8th will be a most special occasion, for him as for us. Inspired by the concept of our French friends Les Siestes Electroniques, we proposed to Rabih Beaini to explore the sound archives from one of the most renowned ethnographic museums of Europe: Le Musée du Quai Branly.
From the result of his researches, Rabih Beaini will produce a musical set, exploring the music, culture and nature from a specific region of this world.
Before to unfold his creation, Rabih will take part in a short conference, describing the process and the responsibility it bears towards the original “material”. Together with Samuel Aubert, the founder of Les Siestes Electronique’s concept, they will evoke the risks and joys of working with such a precious legacy.
Sunday the 10th / Westwerk
17:00H: Live SeaNaps experiment – What the hell is happening here?
You’ve been wondering what this is all about? Why we gave these strange bracelets to all persons attending the festival? Why “No Human is an Island“? Why we even bothered creating a digital currency for our little fresh-born festival? In short: What the hell is happening in SeaNaps?
Come to our live presentation, drink a juice or a beer with us and we will show you what your impact has been, not only on SeaNaps, but also within the economy that surrounds you every day.
18:00H Art and blockchain communities – What is today made of?
An exciting panel and a review of some already existing projects, through a specific lens:
The capacity of these blockchain initiatives to bridge the gap between different fields (private, associative, academic), disciplines (visual arts and music f.e.), “intra – declination” (recorded and live music e.g.) and geographies (national regulations, currencies,etc.).
In other words: How to create an ecosystem aiming at the common good of a decentralized and heterogeneous community and able to deal with a multiplicity of assets, situations and interests, which existed long before the rise of the digital era?
In clearer words: what perspectives is the blockchain giving to those who want to re-organize the wealth creation and distribution, out of the classic top-down schemes?
