This was a very interesting lecture about radio. Starting with some historical facts and outline the importance of that medium through the decades, Schlag also pointed on the medium’s importance for the future.
Really cool to see some sophisticated work from Graz! The design Studio Innocad and 13&9 had some really interesting projects combing several disciplines.
This was a very fascinating lecture to me. It started quite shocking with a lot of devastating facts about our lifestyles. Not necessarily new, but still like a punch in the face when you get to see the hard facts. Personally, I have also thought a lot about this and even asked the question if I am even studying the right thing when you see all the negative consequences that the profession partly could be held responsible for.
Altogether I liked the collection of lectures. They have truly widen my horizon. Below there are short summaries and comments for the first six lectures.

This was a very interesting workshop and lecture! The portfolio of Playdisplay has some really advanced projects, and it was fascinating to hear about how it is to work as a designer in Russia. I liked the starightforwardness of the workshop, and it was fascinating to see the procedure working with projects of that size.
Reading through several papers at the NIME archive, the title Expressive potentials of motion capture in the Vis Insita musical performance by Bazoge et. al . catched my attention. It is about using optical motion capture technology with passive infrared markers (MoCap) to influence the sound in the live-performance Vis Insita.
