This is the last music tech meetup event in 2023. Let’s hang out before the Christmas holidays and watch innovative projects made by the community.
This meetup will shine a light on creative projects from members of the Berlin Music Tech community. We will learn about prototypes, products in the making, and more.
Meet and connect with like-minded individuals from diverse backgrounds, network, share ideas, and enjoy having fun and free drinks.
We are grateful that the Berlin Senate Department for Economics, Energy and Public Enterprises provided us with some funding for this event.
See you at Forum Factory on Monday, December 4 from 6.30 pm on.
Entry is free!

Alaa Elhada – CEO DJOID
Alaa will introduce Djoid, an AI-powered music library management software designed for DJs, Record labels, and Music curators.
DJs are inundated with an overwhelming immense amount of music audio files. The sheer volume of content creates a huge challenge for DJs in terms of file management, music curation, and gig preparation. DJOID emerges as a solution to streamline the process of music management and curation for performing artists. Alaa will delve into DJOID’s core functionalities and explain how AI algorithms are intricately woven into the software to offer a seamless workflow and experience for curation. This talk is tailored for music tech enthusiasts, especially DJs, music producers, and anyone interested in music curation.
Dennis Walton – Founder of büene.live
Dennis created büene.live as a novel service for video content. büene lets musicians and creators monetize their digital content – live events, on-demand videos, masterclasses, products, and services – on their own terms from day one, a place where you can watch curated content and your favorite music concerts live from the comfort of your couch.
Lori Baldwin – Interdisciplinary Performance Artist
Baldwin’s current work is centered around NEKRA, a humanoid bot that brings humanity face to face with their deepest existential questions. In her lab, performance, music, neuroscience, blockchain, and AI meet to explore (im)mortality. The project bridges art and research, with the development and training of an AI model running in tandem with the artistic output. As AI gains access to language it gains access to culture. Both aesthetically and conceptually, NEKRA synthesizes the identity of the artist with AI, as human creativity grapples with its future collaborator, or its replacement.
Thor Diogo Hagedorn – CMO Granola Studios, Co-Founder Diasporic Arts Alliance
In his presentation, Thor will share his experiences as a curator in the live music game Yabal, along with insights from his visits to VRChat parties and concerts. He will delve into the dynamic interplay of virtual reality and live performances, illustrating how these platforms are reshaping the landscape of interactive entertainment. Additionally, he will explore the fusion of digital and physical realms, offering a unique perspective on the evolving world of virtual concerts and social gatherings in VR spaces.
