Create Digital Music is celebrating 5 years of digital music love and to do it, they are throwing a free digital media event:
Link love, chip love, software love, music love ? Create Digital Music is celebrating five years, and it?s time to spread some of the love back to you here in New York City. Wednesday night, we?ll be celebrating five years made possible by our incredible readers with a big party at Love Nightclub in Manhattan.
We?ve got one of the best sound systems in the city. We have eclectic, handmade, heavy beats from the likes of David Last, King Britt, Ganucheau, and IJ Catling (and me, opening up the sets). And because the Honorary Official Language of CDM is Portuguese, we have the baile funk princess Zuzuka Poderosa on vocals.
It’s December 2nd, 7-11 pm. It’s free.
And if that isn’t enough to keep you from staying home and watching Glee, they are buying the drinks.
There’s even going to be a Twister contest! No word on whether they’re turning the Twister mat into a OSC control surface using PD or not – you’ll just have to show up to find out.
Congratulations to Peter Kirn and the CDM crew!
Synth.nl’s Michel van Osenbruggen mentioned an upcoming electronic music festival in his latest blog post:
I’d like to inform you about a very nice Electronic Music Festival that is taking place soon. It is called ‘Electronic Circus’ and it is organized in Bielefeld in Germany. It will take place on the 12th of September. There will be several concerts there and I will be present there as well with a stall. On this stall you can buy my current CD’s directly from me and I will also bring a special preview version of my upcoming ‘OceanoGraphy’ album. It will be almost finished by then so you can get a real sneak preview.
I have visited this event last year and I must say it is very professionally organized and the concerts where great. The concert hall is in the middle of the town so there is plenty to eat just outside. You can find more information on this event on this URL: http://www.electronic-circus.net/. I hope to see you there! It would be nice to meet in person of course.
