Next Generation Visual Programming with VL / Elias Holzer & Sebastian Gregor 


With vvvv we’ve been on a mission to tackle those issues for around 15 years. In April 2015 we released a preview of VL, our new approach to visual programming that we claim will solve many of the known problems and open visual programming to a wider range of audiences.

Volt, Amp, Synth & Sound / Joshua Noble 


Deep down inside code is really just electricity and that means if you have a way to control electricity you have a way to make input, logic, and output without any code at all. All you need is electronics to structure electricity.

Resonate is also for the first time involved in two European projects, partnering with other festivals and institutions world-wide. Both projects will be present within Resonate’s 2016 programme.


We Are Europe, a collaborative project that gathers together c/o pop (Cologne, Germany), Elevate (Graz, Austria), Insomnia (Tromsø, Norway), Nuits sonores (Lyon, France), Resonate (Belgrade, Serbia), Reworks (Thessaloniki, Greece), Sónar (Barcelona, Spain) and TodaysArt (The Hague, Netherlands) and aims to develop a prospective vision of electronic culture, technology and entrepreneurship, contributing to positive new social and political developments with an interdisciplinary approach.


The European Network for Contemporary Audiovisual Creation (ENCAC) intends to foster innovation based on a combination of the knowledge, experience and resources of its members. Their different natures contribute a interdisciplinary and complementary vision. Their contribution to the process of creators, in the various fields covered by the project (i.e. research, production, education and dissemination of the new audiovisual practices) will result in a more effective implementation of innovative solutions that can be exported, that are sustainable and that bring the new audiovisual culture closer to the general public and to the audiovisual industry.

ENCAC partners include: Ars Electronica, Mapping Festival Gèneve, LABoral Centro de Arte y Creación Industrial, LEV festival, humain TROP humain (hTh), Le Lieue Unique, DISK, Avatar, ELEKTRA & MUTEK
