Type & Sound 2: MEEK.FM + Paint Speed Dating at 11:11 a.m. / p.m.03 Nov 2011, Posted by Uncategorized in
Dear lovers of type & tech,
Welcome to the second part of our Type & Sound series. We’re still running Roland Lößlein’s impressive interactive installation “Digging in the Crates” (see our blog for more details!) in our showroom, but gonna release another interactive inimitable synthesizer installation by Rob Meek & Frank Müller. Yes!
The famous MEEK.FM typesynthesizer modulating music synced to type. – It is the only one-of-its-kind, and has been shown at the Typo2007 and some other festivals, but since then disappeared in a bookshelf of his createurs. It is just the right time, to resurrect it.
What else is happening on this one-time AM / PM event?!
Due to this unique date “11.11.2011-11Uhr11” Letters Are MyFriends want to invite you two times at this day at 11.11 a.m. / p.m. -sharp- to come over to our showroom, each time for a special paint-speed-dating session limited to 5 minutes.
This means: we are playing music and in the meantime all participants – separated in two people vis-à-vis – are drawing on the same paper. Dedicated to get known your counterpart better, it is meant to show off your personal typetype and at least your name. 😉
Aside from all of this Ingo Italic, will also create a new fassade painting over our frontwindow.
So there are many reasons, why you should definitely join us next friday, even if the installations run till mid of december.
We looking forward to meeting you!
Yours Letterfriends Gerrit Grotesk, Ingo Italic & Bärbel Bold
