: JUNE UPGRADE!
We present to you yet another
packed evening of new media & electronic music, experimental turntablism,
mixing & video: what could it be but an Upgrade! ?!
This month we are honoured
to present two of Saskatchewan’s superbly strange artists, curators &
musicans, Carrie Gates & Jon Vaughn. The
duo run the BricoLodge sublabel of Montreal’s NoType.com and are both
producers of experimental music (Carrie as an experimental turntablist with
VinylInterventions.com; Jon, with improvisational electronics & composition).
Carrie is a curator at paved Art + New Media in Saskatoon & Jon is also
a wacked-out DJ. Don’t miss their presentation.
The rest of this motley
crew arrives from all over with a diversity of interests: Doug van Noort
is a doctoral candidate in Music Technology at McGill University and will present
some of his software creations for music production in Max/MSP and beyond; Charles
Stankievich, an ex-Vancouverite, is a performance artist and closet
Lacanian who will also delve into the realm of software and Max/MSP; and Matthew
Biederman arrives from the U.S. armed with his laptop software for
generating digital experiments.
See ya & remember kids:
it’s ALL FREE!
