MoMo Friday Special: Music Meets Technology

You migh have heard that Tartu Music Week will have a different flavor this year. This time the whole festival is designed around our local tech-scene. There will be free pop-up concerts at startups and a special MobileMonday: "Music Meets Technology" event to finish the day!

So this Friday, the 27th we'll meet at  Garage48 HUB Tartu - Raekoja plats 16 at 18:00. We'll start the event as usual, have a more party-like feeling to the whole thing - it's FRIDAY afterall! and will go later to Genialistide Klubi.

This will be a different MobileMonday - different day, different feeling, a very different topic bringing together both important scenes in Tartu - the Music and Tech.

Couple of highlights to raise your appetite to meet extraordinary people from Music scene:

Markku Mäkelä, also known by his producer monicker Marked Man, is a Finnish music producer, label owner and manager of Noah Kin. He is a partner at the Helsinki based record label Cocoa Music that has been gaining attention through their releases and high-end music videos for artists such as Noah Kin, Ronya, Gracias, Biniyam and Femme En Fourrure.

Mäkelä’s background is in the IT sector, where his first company in the mid-90’s was one of Finland’s first internet service providers. This lead him working in various new media companies through the early 2000’s.

Sandra Sillamaa is a renowned Estonian bagpipe player and a member of the bands Trad.Attack!, Paabel and Ro:toro. Sandra is also the author of the idea behind "100 Bagpipes" video blog where well-known Estonians are trying to play the Estonian bagpipe for the very first time.
