Polymedia publisher Rizosfera, on the occasion of the celebration of the 40th anniversary of Officine Schwartz (1983-2023), a historical reality of the Italian industrial music scene, will open its media archive to the creativity of the students of the Transmedia course. In fact, on May 17, from 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., an educational workshop in the form of a hackathon will be held at Room 8I of the Polytechnic University of Turin, where Rizosfera will make available videos, songs, texts and images tracing the career and works of Officine Schwartz. Students, divided into working groups, will use the archival materials to create short transmedia narratives (video clips, webdocs, micromeasures…) on a theme of their choice (a song, an instrument, a place…), related to Officine Schwartz, and using Klynt software. Osvaldo Arioldi, founder of Officine Schwartz, will be present in the classroom to introduce the event and dialogue with the students.
