Tickets Now on Sale for Electro-Music 2014 Festival and Conference in NY (Sept. 5-7)

 

This year’s Electro-Music NY Festival and conference is on September 5-7, 2014 at the Greenkill Retreat Center in Huguenot, New York.

ABOUT THIS EVENT

The electro-music(TM) festival is the world's premiere event for experimental electronic music. Now in its tenth year, this three day conference/music festival includes concerts, seminars, demonstrations, jam sessions, a swap meet, and a laptop battle. The scope is very broad, covering all aspects of electro-music: experimental electronic music, circuit bending, computer music, electro-jazz, modular synthesis, musique concrete, improvisation, algorithmic composition, multi-media, visual art and much more. The focus will be on participant involvement, sharing, community development, audience education, and great music.

INFO ON MY SETS

This will be my 7th Electro-Music event and my 4th time at the the NY version. Getting involved with Electro-Music festivals is one of the best things I’ve done as a solo artist. It’s just an amazing event where you’ll see and hear some amazing performances and forge life-long friendships with other artists.

Cinematic Electronica with Invader Cam Set

I’ll be flying out to this show from Boulder to play my Cinematic Electronica set with Invader cam. Here is a video of the song "New Heart Beating" from my new album Fear Cannot Save Us.

A.I. Winter Set
I’ll be playing a set as in a brand new duo called A.I. Winter with Atlanta-based artist Michael O’Bannon.

A.I. Winter is a self-appointed harbinger of the progress of Artificial Intelligence toward world domination.  It imposes its musical interpretations of cosmic machine consciousness on the world at large. To learn more about A.I. Winter visit the microsite http://www.AIWinter.net.

See You At the Festival

I’m excited to announce I’ll be returning to Electro-Music 2012 Festival in NY for the third year running. Here is a blurb for my events that will appear in the program.

Friday Sept. 7, 10:30 PM - Expressive Visual Controllerism Concert
In his third year at Electro-Music, Mark will continue to explore the boundaries of controllerism with Ableton Live coaxing even more expressive real-time performances out of his various virtual synthesizers. It’s all about original sci-fi techno songs and experimental improvs filled with classic and signature synth ear candy performed on keys, grids (Launchpad/Tenori-On), Theremin, AudioCubes, and Lemur.  Visual feedback FTW!

Saturday Sept. 8, 4:00-5:00pm - Creating and Controlling Signature Sounds
with Camel Audio Alchemy
Alchemy offers a great blend of performance features combined with deep synthesis, sample manipulation, resynthesis, granular synthesis, and built-in FX. There is also a mobile app that can act as a wireless multi-touch controller for Alchemy on your computer.  The goal of this talk is to shorten your learning curve so you can start creating your own expressive signature sounds for production and performance. Topics will include: Anatomy and signal flow, programming walk-throughs, tips on incorporating field recordings into patches, overview of modulation mapping, overview of FX, and performance mapping.

Photos of My Recent Tour of Moog Music Factory While at Mountain-Skies Electro-Music Festival #celebratebob

Self-portrait out front. Note Moog is right downtown.

A few weeks back I was in Asheville, NC to do a play and attend the Mountain-Skies festival. On Friday morning  May 11th, the participants of the festival were invited to tour the Moog Music factory. I thought I’d share I’d share my photos to help celebrate what would have been Bob Moog’s 78th birthday. A big thanks to Greg and Hong Waltzer for setting up this tour.

Of course this is something I’d always dreamed of doing so I'm wearing my "kid in a candy store" grin as I entered the showroom. The showroom is filled with Moog products that you can try hands-on.

I can't belive I'm here. Fantastic!

We also got to go behind-the-scenes into the factory. Below is a photo of Moog Voyagers being burned in.

Voyager's burning in

Note that ALL Moog products that ship world-wide are made in this one factory and are hand-assembled. So running at full production that means about 4 voyagers a day. Of course they run at much higher rates of production with smaller less complex products.

The tour then takes you through shipping and the loading dock through to the Moog Studios where they film all those groovy promo videos.

Drawn to massive rack

The whole touru took about 45 minutes and I took quite a few photos of the whole experience which you can view the set on flckr or via the embedded player below. See photo titles for a description for each picture (“Show Info” when running the player full screen). Enjoy! Oh and, don’t forget, you can help keep Bob Moog’s legacy alive by contributing to the http://www.moogfoundation.org/.
