Event Description

MIDI SYNC is hosted by Garden City Electronic Music Society and the Copper Owl.

This is the 4TH night in this series. MIDI SYNC performances include a local cast of curated synthers carefully navigating the maze that is MIDI technology. An educational experience for players and non players alike.

How it works:

- 8 players take one MIDI clock signal to sync to their gear
- then players are randomly selected in pairs to jam out 20 min pieces
- once the first round of 20 minute performances are complete, performers are then placed in randomly selected groups of 4
- master jam! all 8 musicians work together to create one sonic masterpiece

The set up is open concept on the dance floor so that spectators can observe how each player is putting together their sonics. Each player is available to answer questions about their setups and chat about how they approach MIDI. If you're curious about hardware MIDI tech, this event is for you. Also lots of cool gear to check out as performers bring purchased hardware and stuff that they built. This is a strictly a no laptop, no ableton affair.

Performers are chosen based on their sonic palette and experience with MIDI equipment. The evenings music although unpredictable in nature will delv into the experimental and psychedelic sonic spectrum as well as encompassing anything from ambient soundscapes to minimal/glitch/downtempo/house electronic beats.

As usual there will be super rad projections.

Confirmed performers so far:

Daniel Demers aka Overseas Territory

Lorne Hammond aka Sea Lion

Jay Hammer aka Porta2Note

J. Schuuurman aka Psychic Pollution

Chris Rozek aka Rozek

Alexander aka Spiral Coyote

Craig Huxtable aka Landscape Body Machine

+ one more ( that could be you, pm Jro J Schuurman if you're interested in playing)

It's only $5 at the door which is super cheap considering the massive talent usually involved.

this event is 19+ :(
