Friday, February 20, 2015 at 8pm in World Music Hall: “Idiopreneurial Entrephonics” Concert I - “Perambulating, Peering, Prodding and Hearing: The Synthesizer Car Show”

Concerts of live electronic music often end with people wandering the stage to puzzle over the maze of cables and boxes that served as the instrument of the evening’s music. The synthesizer car show reverses that. All of the instruments of the weekend will be available for audition and inspection, punctuated by short informative declamations and needle drops by Thom Holmes (author of “Electronic and Experimental Music,” and possessor of every LP record ever made that features a Moog synthesizer); and Asha Tamirisa (creator of
the digital doppleganger of the ARP 2500 synthesizer).  With contributions from David Behrman, Michael Johnsen, Mark Verbos, Michael Schumacher, Kato Hideki, Luke DuBois, and Matt Wellins; graduate music students Peter Blasser, Cecilia Lopez, and Daniel Fishkin; and many others.

And at 9pm, there will be performances by Analogos (Michael Schumacher, Kato Hideki and Luke DuBois).

Saturday, February 21, 2015 at 8pm in World Music Hall: “Idiopreneurial Entrephonics” Concert II

The festival concludes with a concert of live electronics old and new, with performances by Visiting Assistant Professor of Music Jonathan Zorn, Michael Johnsen, Mark Verbos, Matt Wellins, and a special original instruments performance of David Behrman’s “Runthrough” (1967-1968).
