With plenty to catch up, both the business-minded and the casual tech enthusiast, this festival is made to get you thinking along with an infectious inspiration. Here’s our top five must catch instalments for the creative minded, at this years Pause Fest:

 My Idea! – Ego, Authorship And Collaboration In The Pursuit Of Great Work
Tim and Lindsay will explore the moments when we have an idea, find out it’s already been done and then give up altogether. Should we be giving up, seeking collaboration or rethinking the problem? They’ll show examples of DT’s work and sprint process, how the agency collaborates with OpenSource and OpenDesign communities and look in detail at exciting collaborations with The Guardian and GPT/Melbourne Central.
@ Deakin Edge: Wed 10th

The X-Files Of Teenage Engineering
Come behind the garage door and past the luxury European cars; find out what makes Teenage Engineering tick. Known as one of the most exciting engineering collectives in the world, they’re redefining the creative process. At the helm is Jesper Kouthoofd – a wunderkind that’s turned his 1980s childhood into a production playground. This fascinating inside look will explore how the company is bringing together the physical and digital.

Music Streaming In The Creative Economy
Whilst music has remained central to the lives of almost all, consumption patterns and distribution have shifted significantly. Australia is seen as a leading light in terms of music streaming and live performances, bringing us a crowded services market and not enough consumers. This session will discuss the music streaming landscape, where everybody fits in and how it will play out in the years to come. Jane will talk specifically about the role of Pandora streaming radio in connecting bands, brands and fans, diversifying business.

As you walk along the path, the sounds of river system are layered with sonic art and river stories for Pause delegates to discover between sessions.
