The Wire


Ahead of this year's music and technology meeting in Berlin, watch The Wire's Frances Morgan hosting a live Invisible Jukebox at the 2016 edition with Gudrun Gut

Ableton's Loop summit for music makers will return to Berlin this year for its third edition between 10–12 November. As with 2016, the three day event will take place in the Funkhaus and feature workshops, performances and discussions on the topics of music, technology and creative practice.

Following on from 2016's programme which featured Lee 'Scratch' Perry, Moritz von Oswald, Suzanne Ciani and many others – as well as The Wire's Frances Morgan hosting live Invisible Jukeboxes with both Gudrun Gut and Morton Subotnick – the event promises “new ways to collaborate and exchange ideas with others”. The full programme for day and night events will be announced in July. Online registration for tickets is now open.
