MORE ON THE SYNTH_DRONE COLLECTIVE
Synth_Drone Collective is a group of like-minded sound artists, each with one synthesizer improvising ambient drone music. Players perform together focusing on single tone holds and sound manipulations as inspired. Synth_drone collective is kuxaan-sum, bios+a+ic, Wes Milholen, Mark Mosher, and Sean Patrick Faling.
The collective’s first performance was in December at Textures Ambient Showcase in Denver.
Here is an hour and half live recording of that show. If you dig it, consider a buy.
Note for [LEAF] event we’ll be focusing more on mellow minimal and atmosphere sounds :^)
On Friday I’ll be performing with the amazing Nord Lead 4 performance synthesizer which I’ve been devlopmening my mastery on for over 2 years.
MORE ON [LEAF]
Lafayette Electronic Arts Festival [LEAF] is a showcase of experimental musical forms that bridge the classical music world with contemporary electronic and new media arts, including sound and visual components combined in new and novel ways. Sometimes called “visual music”, or “live audiovisual performance” or even “expanded cinema”, the one-night only event brings together international level artists from both coasts with artists from Denver/Lafayette to challenge the senses and explore the potential for sound and image in concert for a live audience.
The event starts at 7pm on Friday April 1st, 2016 and will be held in Founders Hall at the Colorado Music Festival & Center for Musical Arts, 200 E. Baseline Rd. in Lafayette, CO. The event is open to the public, with a 21+ cash bar available. Tickets are Pay What You Decide – the festival is free to attend and you may donate what you choose.
