Evolution Control Committee: Reels of Steel and guests

Doors open 6:30pm | Show starts 7:30pm

Evolution Control Committee
What happens when you make a movie soundtrack using only soundtrack albums of other movies? The Evolution Control Committee composes a score to the silent horror classic Nosferatu resulting in a fun collage of familiar tunes, DJ’d live. In Reels of Steel a tightly-composed soundtrack is spontaneously created using only vinyl records, pushing the limitations of copyright. Followed by a Q&A with the artists.


Ivan Reese
Mary Everest Boole is a narrative performance of stochastic musical cybernetics featuring a unique software program which allows a computer to listen to its environment for sounds and resynthesizes them into musical phrases.

Festival installations by:

But we're not finished yet: tonight we hit the airwaves for an East Bay radio double-header!  Here's the details, gleefully swiped from Otis Fodder's site:

Thursday July 8th — ECC vs BRAN Death Match
7-9pm (Pacific), 10pm-Midnight (Eastern) on KALX 90.7 FM, Berkeley, California
The KALX Death Match 2010 is a one hour music face-off/smack-down featuring the mash-up mayhem of The Evolution Control Committee vs. cut-up confectioners The Bran Flakes, refereed by your Tumble Weed. And you, the listener, decides which of these artists dies. Are you ready to rumble?!

Thursday July 8thOver The Edge
Midnight-3am (Pacific), 3am-6am (Eastern), 8am-11am (GMT) on KPFA 94.1 FM, Berkeley, California
Money Music – Mixing and creating music all about money with Don Joyce of Negativland, Otis Fodder of The Bran Flakes, TradeMark G. from The Evolution Control Committee, Wobbly (Jon Leidecker) and Phineas Narco of The National Cynical Network. The show starts at Midnight, the night of July 8th, 2010; which is technically July 9th 12am (PST). Running time is 3 hours.
Visit the facebook event page.

The KALX Death Match is a great concept; can't wait to see how it plays out for us.  And of course Over The Edge is the legendary long-running radio show of Negativland and this collaboration should make for a great episode.  Tune in!
