The 2024 FiftySix Design Talk series kicks off with fusion of art and technology, a theme aptly named ‘Sonic Alchemy’, on Wednesday 24th January at Valletta Design Cluster.
This perfectly captures the essence of the evening’s stars, Aidan Somers and Christian Heinrichs, each a master in their respective fields.
Aidan Somers isn’t just a musician; he’s a storyteller through sound. His music, spanning the tranquil depths of ambient to the pulsing rhythms of electronica, has a way of capturing the listener’s imagination. As the founder of AISO Records, Aidan doesn’t just create music; he’s shaping the future of sound by nurturing up-and-coming artists. Whether performing as himself or under his electronic alter ego, Alias 1, Aidan’s work is a testament to the power of musical exploration.
Then there’s Christian Heinrichs, a sound designer who marries art with technology. His creations have graced platforms from Adult Swim to Google Arts & Culture, touching millions with their innovative soundscapes. Christian’s talk promises to be a fascinating journey through his world of interactive audio systems, stretching across various formats like web interfaces, virtual reality, digital instruments, and even the ambient sounds of electric vehicles.
