Interactive artwork Noisy Table, an augmented ping-pong table that makes music and sounds as games are played, arrives in FACT on 6th December.
Who better to test it out than some of the city's best-loved bands? Over the next 10 weeks 8 bands will compete to be crowned “Bats & Bleeps Ping-Pong Champion!” in a round robin ping-pong tournament. To launch Noisy Table and get the competition underway, FACT are incredibly happy to welcome Liverpool legends Clinic for an exclusive DJ set and atmospheric electronica artist Afternaut, who will be performing live.
It is no wonder that this artwork is coming to FACT as Mike Stubbs the artistic director at FACT has a Ping Pong table is his back room at home and never misses a chance to battle it out against any unsuspecting visitor - Pity the Watch Tower seller.

Interesting video into the use of Mobile Ticketing by the London Symphony Orchestra, who along with Kodime (the digital Agency) and Salford University are testing mobile marketing and ticketing, allowing students to purchase discounted concert tickets through mobile apps. The apps will also use location data to show events nearby and allow students to share comments via social media. This is an Arts Council England funding project.
I can see there being more more use of this kind of individual organisational apps in the future, but the interesting bit is really when they start joining up and cross promoting events using each others apps.

Liverpool's creative developement agency ACME are launching the brand new network in September. OK it has the same name as the old Liverpool network but we are promised something brand new and a bit more function than the old site, as it has been built from the ground up by Design Agency Splinter. I should know I helped with the user testing, so I hope they took my advice.
Yes, ACME has been busy reinventing this unique site that promotes Liverpool's creative community, and it will soon be ready for creatives to update their profile and portfolio, and re-connect with others and with your Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn accounts.

Closes: 14th September 2012.
