The Media Centre and Bates Mill
Ultrasound 2005 presents a diverse programme of live performances, installations, workshop and talks by UK and international artists working in new interdisciplinary ways across the interrelated fields of new media, contemporary electronic music, software production, new technologies and audiovisual performance.
We are pleased to announce the 'Finnish Partition' of the festival, programmed in collaboration with Helsinki based artist, organiser and curator Juha Huuskonen. The 'Finnish Partition' represents a cross-section of the new and emerging creative talent practising media arts in Finland today, supported by established names such as Pan Sonic.
The festival takes place at The Media Centre and Bates Mill, two contrasting venues. The Media Centre is home to over 60 creative industries enterprises, while Bates Mill is a traditional Mill complex just outside Huddersfield town centre. The performances at Bates Mill are located in the old 'Blending Shed' a 5,000 sq ft industrial space.

Open software / open hardware
TileToy is an open project. Both the source code and the hardware will be made available via open licenses. The aim of TileToy is not just to create something that we ourselves can use to create interesting games and demos for, but as a platform that anyone can use to create unique content. Making the software open will allow people to create their own applications and games and feed these back into the community to spark further innovation. The open hardware will also allow people to make their own TileToys cheaply without paying a third party potentially leading to new projects that branch off to make new versions of TileToy based on the original hardware.http://www.ultrasound.ws/tiletoy.html
Further additions to the programme will be announced soon. Please visit the website or sign up to the electronic mailing list.
