As far as the festival David is talking about, one of the main persons involved with helping with the event used to travel the world DJ ing. He has played at 15k person venues and with others such as the Chemical Brothers etc. I mentioned this to him last night and will forward him the info and get him in the loop.

I don’t know any techno people, but here are two artists who are LE activists. Infy snow (rock/metal0, and Matreya One (hip-hop).
As far as having a festival, be sure to hold it in a big population center and consider hiring an event promoter or someone who has organized successful music festivals before. Heales (and a few LongeCity volunteers) tried a music festival once but it didn’t turn out well. Hardly anyone attended. I had a fun time. Great bands, food, and drinks, but only a handful of people were there.

Sure, David! By that time we may already have the Longenesis collective and a dozen aging-oriented tracks akin “Aging is a terminal disease”. We will be exhibiting at the Nvidia GTC again at around the same time to recruit more HPC for Insilico Medicine and partner, so it will be a good time to get a few composing techno DJs together.

We are planning a big extreme longevity festival about this time next year Alex (see attachment) which could incorporate the techno party. We’re already planning live music and some celebs.

Thank you, Roman! Excellent idea.
If we get enough DJs to compete and the famous ones join the cause, it may be possible to publish a complete album and think about organizing Aging Research Techno party to popularize the cause and make it a bit more mainstream.

great idea. What we can do is to write our favourite artists directly in Soundcloud or Twitter and ask to participate

Some of the longevity enthusiasts come from IT. We will see more and more of this, since the availability of cheap big omics, clinical and biomedical text data coupled with cheap computing and rapidly advancing deep learning technologies allows small teams to make substantial contributions to the field.
Many programmers like to listen to techno while coding and one of the ways to get them interested in aging research is to compose several tracks that may help for narcolepsy and mention aging at the same time. To get a few of these tunes I started a DJ competition on http://www.AgingKills.org and produced a first sample track together with a brilliant young DJ from Hungary called “Aging is a Terminal Disease”:
Can I ask you to help invite more people in the community to contribute their tracks for the competition?
