Musician turned inventor, Matan Berkowitz, started experimenting with the translation of physical signals (such as heartbeats, brainwaves and moon) into music and found himself on an unexpected journey: developing unique wearable instruments, creating interactive art installations for museums and galleries, and performing conceptual, tech-infused shows for the likes of TED, Forbes, Google and Microsoft on stages worldwide. Seeking to deepen the potential impact of his work, Matan founded an innovation lab and set out to build and collaborate across different industries. After co-developing devices that help blind, paralyzed, amputated and autistic individuals to express themselves in new ways, he is currently unveiling his latest invention - which can change the lives of millions.
5:30-6:30 The talk will include Q&A and a live demo of the Airstrument, a device that turns hand movements into music and makes music more intuitive and accessible than ever before.
6:30-7:30 Meet and greet to follow.
Pop-Up Kosher Cafe open from 4:30-7:30.
