GOGBOT: Enschede, 10 – 13 September 2020

Par : Marco Savo



Gogbot is an audiovisual event for creative technology, science, new media arts and music.

Out and about robots, hard-techno futuristic music, crazy bonkers live performances, audiovisual extravaganza with a general cyberpunk attitude to bond it all together.

All of this and much more is offered by Gogbot Festival, the techno-hardcore-sci-fi audiovisual event based in Netherlands.

Basically the kind of event we would go on a normal weekend if we were living in the Mad Max universe. The main aim of the event is showcasing the most avant-garde and cutting edge trends in the audiovisual and new media world. And then push a little further!

There is nothing quite like Gogbot on the audiovisual scene: AI meets AV, Science meets music, art meets activism during 4 intense days of multidisciplinary activities across Enschede.

Every year, the organizers propose a controversial and thought-provoking theme set to trigger reflection in the community and cutting-edge experimentation by the selected artists. Innovation in digital creativity is key and the festival creates a sonic space for this.

Every year, the result is an insanely powerful and immersive artistic rendez-vous that leaves a lingering impact awhile after the end of the festival.

This year theme is Quantum Supremacy, a mind-blowing, controversial, but extremely urgent theme.

Big companies such as Google, Microsoft, and IBM are competing to build the first quantum computer, a ‘supercomputer’ expected to be a staggering one billion times faster than today’s best computer. What will the quantum future hold?

In this Age of Pandemic, we are made acutely aware of our dependence on digital technology for work, education, and healthcare. Now more than ever, the growth of digital technology demands critical reflection.

Globalization and economic growth have brought us pandemic and environmental destruction. How can we break this cycle? Can we harness quantum technology to protect ourselves and the world we live in?

LOST HORIZON FESTIVAL – GAS TOWER: 3 – 4th July, Online



Glastonbury, VJ showcase and a virtual reality event. Did I get your attention yet?


That’s right, in a moment where the ‘new normal’ is beginning to establish new ways of working in the world of audiovisual events, Lost Horizon Festival presents us with some of the world’s first responses to Corona Virus brought to us via the Gas Tower.

The team behind Glastonbury’s Shangri-La presents Lost Horizon festival, with 360º immersive visual shows from a healthy list of audiovisual artists that will make you forget we were in the middle of a pandemic, just like Woodstock (hip-hip-hooray!)

With the branding slightly reminiscent of a Madonna track ‘A REAL FESTIVAL, IN A VIRTUAL WORLD’ we are in for a treat, not to mention a fantastic list of VJing sumptuousness to explore and discover!

From the likes of Bertie Sampson, blinkinLAB, Bob Jaroc, DDL, Delta Process, Dr and Quinch, Enjoy Kaos, Fade In Fade Out, Greenaway & Greenaway, Joëlle, Koolik, L’Aubaine (check out the our interview with her) Lazershaft, Lazersonic, LEDS Akimbo, Limbic Cinema, Matt Lee Vs The Positronic Man, More Eyes, Primary Visual Cortex, Rebel Overlay, REM Visuals, WeAreMidnight.

Audiovisual artists



Yes, that’s a lot of new, fresh audiovisual artists coming soon on Audiovisual City, with great thanks to Creative Giants, for curating this mind blowing line-up, promising us a fully immersive digital art and music event.

“Taking the Gas Tower from the fields of the festival world into a groundbreaking new reality, Creative Giants are excited to be joining the team Shangri-La on their voyage of discovery to Lost Horizon, which redefines what a festival can be, creating ways for people to come together and experience music and art in a way we never would have previously imagined.”

Simon Vaughan, Creative Giants

A virtual audiovisual event



What’s more, is nothing sells a virtual festival like the mouthwateringly designed website by Manchester studio, Instruct Studio. If this website were food, I’ve already been eating with my eyes and gotten pretty fat.

“We are thrilled to showcase some of the world’s leading VJs and visual artists in this way. The physical structure of The Gas Tower has been recreated in exact detail in virtual reality, allowing viewers to look around in full 360 degrees to fully immerse themselves in beautiful visuals. We are proud to be leading the way into the digital domain, presenting ground-breaking artists with innovative and mind blowing visuals as part of this ambitious new form of live experience.”

Pete Thornton, More Eyes

Rebel Overlay

Light based minimalistic blade-runner-esque visuals that will make you feel retro futuristic, with everything from lasers to LED totems and 3D structures in the portfolio bag, all with a dash of Resolume control.

WeAreMidnight

No messing about, this studio based in London have done whopping great visual productions for the likes of Coachella, Boomtown and The Human League (for those of you who are old enough to know who they are).

Enjoy the Kaos

Interesting looking 3D abstract visuals that look like candy cane, sweet enough to hang off your Christmas tree. If you’re into 3D animation, mapping, photogrammetry, and art in general then Enjoy the Kaos should definitely be an audiovisual show on your AV hit-list.

blinkinLAB

Immersive tour visuals for Adam Beyer, and for Booka Shade, what’s not to inspire any keen audiovisual festival goer? Primarily focused on content creation, blinkinLAB is a motion graphics design studio based in London.

Their portfolio of work includes tour visual content creation, motion graphic design, music video, tv commercials, idents and title sequences, as well as live audiovisual performance, vj-ing and projection mapping installations.
