Forms celebrates and explores the interconnected and growing worlds of independent music, art, and gaming.
With a goal of showcasing the creativity, independence, innovation, and interactivity happening in the growing platforms of music, art, and gaming, Forms looks to go where other music-centric conferences haven’t by giving equal weight to these mediums and bringing them together in unusual and exciting ways. Musicians will work with visual artists, game designers with musicians, game designers with artists. We’ll present bands in galleries, artists in clubs, games everywhere in between. Forms will surprise and bring new experiences to audiences by presenting musicians, artists, and game designers finding common ground and drawing inspiration from and beyond their primary field.

This sounds like a good time, if nothing else. But you know it will be so much more. Collaborations, remixes, and mashups are what the new art culture does best, Pitchfork is just reading the writing on the wall (which they wrote) and bringing it together. With some luck New Rockstar Philosophy will get out to see it.
