Time: 18:00 door opens, 19:00 concert starts
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!
