ECC URL du jour: Where did the term "mash-up" come from?


Back now from Australia... just long enough to write this and then go to Cleveland.  Try to keep up, people... 

The Ingenuity Festival Cleveland returns... and so will The ECC.


The Evolution Control Committee had a great time performing last year at Ingenuity Festival 2008, so when their call for artists came out for 2009's event it was a no-brainer to apply.  Guess they liked us too -- we're in!


This coming weekend The ECC brings The Wheel Of Mashup and our amazing new VidiMasher 3000 to Cleveland Ohio to do FOUR great shows for the 2009 Ingenuity Festival Cleveland.  After appearing in the festival's Preview Party on Thursday July 9th, The ECC hits the street to perform on the All Go Signs alley stage.  We'll do a fresh show for every day of the festival:


7:30-8 pm  •  Friday, July 10, 2009
10-10:30 pm  •  Saturday, July 11, 2009
5-5:30 pm  •  Sunday, July 12, 2009


Every show will be different with new mashups being created as audience members spin the Wheel Of Mashup.  But the rest of the music changes too: one of the great things about our new VidiMasher 3000 is that it makes improvised mashup music possible, cutting and pasting on the fly -- anything can happen!


Last year's festival was one of our highlights of the year.  Join us this weekend and see why!


WHAT: Ingenuity Festival Cleveland
WHEN: One show each day, 9-12 July 2009 (see times above)
Playhouse Square/Star Plaza, downtown Cleveland Ohio (map)
TICKETS: From $10 / Order tickets online


Down Under: Done!


Thank you, Australia -- it was great to see you dancing and partying with The Evolution Control Committee and our little Wheel Of Mashup show.  Our shows in Sydney and Cairns were both great times, as were the rest of the festivals our shows were part of.  We have many recordings, photos, and videos to sift through and share after our next travels -- until then, check out the Liquid Architecture blog for a very favorable review of our show there.  Here's hoping for a quick return and the chance to hit more cities across Australia!


Big thanks to the festival organizers: Shannon O'Neill and Jen Teo (Liquid Architecture Festival), and Nicholas Mills (On Edge Festival), and to Brent Clough (The Night Air, ABC), Jamie and Aspa (Mu Meson Archives and The Naked City), Hermann's Bar, and Mofo Gallery.
