Design Night is an events program at the Autodesk Gallery. At each event, guests explore a different theme — such as biomimicry, light, or robotics — that challenges the conventionally narrow definition of design. The theme is reflected in all aspects of the event, from the activities guests enjoy to the food they eat to the music they hear. The result is a fun and fascinating venue for exploration, networking, and the exchange of ideas. So far we have had:
- September 6, 2012: Small is the Next Big Thing // more
- October 4, 2012: Public Interest Design // more
- November 1, 2013: Future of Transportation
- December 6, 2012: Leaps and Bounds // more

On Thursday, August 1, 6-10 p.m., the Autodesk Gallery in San Francisco will host another Design Night: Techno? Tech-yes!, where we will explore the design's impact on music. So get your musical self over to Design Night and experience:
Talk by Tyler Kicera, stage and automation design guru from Tait Towers // more
Live performance from musical alchemist Elizaveta // more
Self-playing drums (or Arduino if you want to sound "with it") // more
Musical Instructables // more
From classical opera and jazz fusion to rock ‘n roll and techno funk, music is more than just entertainment — it’s art, communication, a way of connecting us all. More than just listening to music, we feel it. And the rapid evolution of design technology is changing the way we experience it—how it’s delivered, how it’s performed, and the music itself. But what hasn’t changed is its spirit and why we create it.
So come to Design Night if you're curious about music and what it means to be influenced by the future of design. Also enjoy an open bar, food, activities, and much, much more so...um...hurry!
