Information: The 13th Emergent Content Workshop, conducted by Kim  
Cascone, takes place at Bilgi University in Istanbul Turkey.
The participants spent 4 days breeding sound files which comprises a  
sound library which will be used in their performance as a laptop  
Then Kim Cascone will perform a piece titled 'Spectral Space', a 30  
minute soundscape constructed from a sound library he has been  
developing for the past 10 years.
The venue: The Energy Museum is housed in the old Silahtaraga Power  
Plant, which was salvaged then renovated by the Turkish government in  
2007 and is now a center for education and the arts. It is also an  
amazing space to hear electronic music in; surrounded by hulking  
rusted dynamos, huge levers and switches, glass dials the atmosphere  
can only be described as 'industrial surreal.'
The decor is one part mad scientists laboratory and one part David  
Lynch meets the boiler room of a Russian battleship -- this is an  
event not to be missed!
