Quantopia

Quantopia barcode logo

Quantopia (formerly called Sonic Web) is a multimedia hip hop concert experience about the history and exponential growth of the Internet. DJ Spooky will create live loops and layers of sound and data visualizations using a one-of-a-kind touch screen instrument designed by Greg Niemeyer, Internet Archive and data artist. The hour-long experience will feature a local string ensemble and a narrator, resulting in a multi-sensory journey. A celebration of the history of the Internet, Quantopia is a tribute to the depth and high stakes of free speech and creative expression involved in our daily use of media.
