I'm a member of the board of directors of a small nonprofit organization that, among other things, runs two (mostly acoustic) musical events each year at the electro-music 2009 site. Would it be OK if I posted a pointer to the website for these events? It has pictures, and perhaps some of the electro-music readers might be interested in attending -- our next events are in April and October, so both of them would be before the electro-music weekend.

OK... The organization is The Folk Project, which puts on about 100 events each year, mostly in northern New Jersey, and which include regularly scheduled and irregularly scheduled concerts, contra dances, house parties, storytelling festivals, and two weekend festivals each year, which we are currently holding at Star Lake Camp.

I expect to be coming to electro-music 2009.

There are only three main rooms (dining, assembly, and lounge), compared to the four we have used in the past, which means that seminars and jams will have to share the lounge.


Count me (and likely the rest of the BS crew) IN! I think (as I look at Ark's photo links) that some of us will be drawn to some of the more-interesting OUTdoor areas in which to perform... I particularly like the "Cupola on the Hill" area. With a small generator or VERY long extension cords, I'm sure some of these alternative performance sites will be magnets for the more ambient performers (weather permitting). I like the idea of combining the scheduled stuff with lots more open jam opportunities, like "All circuit benders meet dockside on Sunday at 2pm to meet, trade tips, and jam!" Ah, the possibilities... who is going to get ANY sleep??!!! Wink

The idea of a 24/7 live-in environment will be more like the camp thing that Greg tried to put together a few years ago, and that'll make EM09 a BIG deal for all of us.

So, a big YAY to a TOTAL immersion weekend!!! Can't wait! -Ken

Also...Right next to the basketball court is a small structure with a roof. You can see it in some of the pictures. It has electricity.

It sounds like it!!! Why does October have to be so far away?? Laughing

I've never been to this event so I have a question. What do people do about musical instruments? Do they bring a big synth, stand, Amp, the whole rig? Do they bring something portable (banjo, kazoo)? Do you set up a space & have a bunch of amps people can plug into? (I really HATe moving an amp around.)

What are the jams like? I've been to folk events where everyone carries a guitar around & they just jump in on various jams. Can't really do that with big keyboards & electric instruments. Are they basically performances, or can anyone join?

I also wonder if anyone hosts workshops or places where people can learn. I haven't yet met anyone who could teach me something about synths & MIDI, except my son. Cool

I'd also like to learn lots of other things, like about light & electronics. Tell me all about what goes on!

Laura

Yeah!! It's awesome!
But is everyone at the festival a pro who brings 100 lbs of gear?

Laughing no some bring way more, so others can bring less ... at least that was the case in 2005. Some came just to enjoy as a listener, of which some then choose to be more active the year after ... you don't need to do anything, and you can do everything. And when you'd like to do something for which you can't bring the gear with you, people will be glad to help you out.

Anyone can join in the jams, sometimes there is no one there, other times the room is full. They have ranged from acoustic drum circles to pure noise fest, with some structured sessions. We set up a PA with mixer in the jam room, so all you need to bring is your instrument, stand, and cables to connect to the mixer (20 ft recommended). If people want to have a session with a particular theme, we allocate a time slot in the schedule, so others that are interested can join.

Is it too early to ask what kind of connectors the mixer wants?

Yes, it's too early - since we rely on volunteers to bring the equipment we will use, we don't know what it will be yet. However, I think it's safe to say that any mixer we might use will accept 1/4" phono inputs, and XLR inputs for microphones.

There are usually lots of seminars and demonstrations. Check the previous years to see some examples:

Might I suggest Kingsport again.

February 2009 saw a major new music festival (highly electronic-based) in Knoxville, Tn called Big Ears. Just to mention some of the electronic artists/composers there; Fennesz, Jon Hassell, Nagativland, Pauline Oliveros.

It would be great to build upon this growing emphasis on new music in the East Tennessee area.

Big Ears sounds like a great festival! Laughing
Please consider posting events like that on the forum ... I would love to come to the next one. I am just one state over.

Oh, goodie, the Man with the Bhang Lassie!

Every time I register for a U.S. domestic flight online they ask, Are You a Member of the European Union? (Why do we ask?) I've never looked, although, last I checked, you Brits weren't neither.

Greg just sent out this email:
Quote:
We are pleased to announce electro-music 2009(TM), the world's premiere
event for experimental electronic music.
This three day conference/music festival will be held at the Star Lake
Camp in Bloomingdale, New Jersey, October 29 - 31, 2009. The program
will include three full days of concerts, seminars, demonstrations, and
jam sessions. Now in it's fifth year, we expect this to be the biggest
and best electro-music event ever!

The scope of this festival 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.

You can actively participate in electro-music 2009 by performing music
or visuals, giving a seminar, workshop, or demonstration, joining the
jam sessions, or by volunteering to help with various tasks. Please
visit the web site for instructions on how to participate:
http://event.electro-music.com/

Bring whatever you feel like bringing. When it was within commuting distance outside Philly, I'd just bring a banjo on days that I wasn't officially performing/demoing, and I'd lug in the usual ton of cables + amperage pushers on the other days.

Hand drums are good. There's a drum circle Sunday morning. Rebecca Mercuri carries an ocarina. I carry a jaw harp at all times.

Last year one of the high points of the noise jam was a screaming woman whose screams were modulated by someone else's theremin. Bring your voice!

Edit: PS, you can catch 30 seconds of my banjo at the very end of the movie Mosc cites above. That's from 2006.
