SUBOTRON/WKW pro games: Hands-On with Unity 5
Event series on the practice of digital games
Venue: Raum D / quartier21
Unity Technologies´ evangelist Andy Touch will give a hands-on, in-editor demonstration covering many of the varied improvements that Unity has made to it’s engine for it’s next major release: Physical Based Shading, Reflection Probes, Exporting to WebGL, 2D Physics Features, Drawcall Visualisation and more! This talk is welcome for all skill-levels of game developers, programmers and artists!
Unity is a cross-platform game creation system including a game engine and integrated development environment. It is used to develop video games for web sites, desktop platforms, consoles, and mobile devices. First announced only for Mac OS, at Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference in 2005, it has since been extended to target more than fifteen platforms.
Ever since he downloaded Unity, added 3D physics to 1000 cubes and watched them bounce around, Andy Touch has been addicted to experimenting with gaming technology. Having previously taught game development to university students, he is now part of Unity Technologies‘ evangelism team helping to spread the word of the game engine and to show off what it can do! When he isn’t talking about Unity, he can probably be found marathoning TV shows or playing “Mario kart”.

TONSPUR 68: Wolfgang Mitterer (AUT): POINTS
8-channel sound composition, 7-part poster series in the TONSPUR_passage
The ordering and forming of silence between sounds:
Wolfgang Mitterer lives in Vienna.
Mitterer studied organ, composition and electroacoustics in Vienna and Stockholm. He is not only one of the Austrian specialists for electronics as well as being equally brilliant on the keyboard and on the slide controls, but is also one of the most innovative composers. His work oscillates between composition and open form. Apart from music for organ and orchestra, a piano concerto and an opera he has produced electronic pieces, conceptualized sound installations, and engaged in collective improvisation with diverse groups, developing a language of extremes, tension and complexity. The pleasure he takes in experimenting leads him to combine contrasting elements in the creation of unpredictable musical events. In one major composition, for instance, he juxtaposes musical bands and children’s choirs with specialized instrumentalists and singers, while filling the hall with surround sound created by live electronics. But his work transcends the merely spectacular, precisely because of his musical presence and the high – deeply moving – intensity and complexity of his compositions. Listening intensely to low sounds has its place just as much as the “installing” of exploding sound fragments in the listeners’ minds. Far from being smoothly pleasurable, Mitterer’s music is still uncannily beautiful at times.
