Prairie Wires Modular (PWM) is set for it’s inaugural two-day Modular Meetup on Friday, June 14 and Saturday, June 15, 2019.
PWM will be held at the Art Gallery of Southwestern Manitoba. The event will feature a showcase of free performances and an open-house, all focusing on modular synthesizers.
There are three free live performance events planned for this year’s meet-up. The opening concert at Chez Angela Bakery and Café on Friday June 14 at 6:30 p.m. will feature an electro-acoustic performance of modular synthesizer and trombone. Saturday’s program includes another free concert on the Fraser Sneath patio at 10:00 a.m. Finally, “Modular on the Spot”, a free out door modular synthesizer “picnic” will take place at 4:30 p.m., in conjunction with the Brandon Pride festivities.
Synthesists visiting Brandon for this event include Winnipeg ambient musicians Yoyu (Ali Khan) and Bondegi (Chris Harder) and modular duo Cactus Practice (Grant Partridge and Denys Gareau) also of Winnipeg. Prairie Wires Modular founder and Brandon-based electronic musician Moon Shape Noise (Brendon Ehinger) will also be performing.
All the events are free of charge, open to the public and family friendly. See the event site for details.
