Ahhhh, what a shame -- EcoMotion Mendocino has had to cancel.  Looking forward to a future successful reincarnation...


The ECC goes north!  We're jumping in the new ECC tour bus to head up to Mendocino for EcoMotion Mendocino - "Block Rockin' Beats for Sustainable Eats!"  For those north of the Bay Area this is a chance to see The Evolution Control Committee's Wheel Of Mashup show right on the coast in downtown Fort BraggPlenty of great names on this bill; we're pleased to share the ranks with Missy Elliot, Beats Antique, and plenty more great musicians and DJs.  Best of all EcoMotion is a benefit for Mendocino county non-profits and school nutritional programs, and even bester, it's FREE!

WHAT: EcoMotion Mendocino street festival of art, music, education, and healthy choices
WHEN: Saturday October 10th / noon to 10pm
WHERE: Downtown Fort Bragg / directions



Ingenuity Festival Cleveland

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

As June breaks and the beginning of summer proper approaches --  and yet only 11 days from now The ECC will fly south for the winter.  Are we overly eager?  Perhaps slow travelers?  Neither -- because where we're going, it's winter right now.

The Evolution Control Committee goes Down Under: AUSTRALIA


First Stop: Sydney and the Liquid Architecture Festival!  To mark it's 10th year, organizer Shannon O'Neill wanted to do something special, and we're quite gratified that he remembered The Evolution Control Committee from our 2001 shows and thought we would be that special thing.  And The ECC will not disappoint -- we'll bring nothing short of the full Wheel Of Mashup show including VidiMasher 3000 to the Sydney stage, the first time this ECC show has crossed the equator as well as the international date line.  This is our only Sydney/NSW show, so DON'T MISS IT!

WHAT: Liquid Architecture Festival - 10th Anniversary
WHEN: 24-27 June 2009 / ECC on Saturday, June 27th
Hermann's Bar, Cnr City Rd & Butlin Ave, Sydney NSW

Second Stop: Cairns and the On Edge Festival!  Halfway to Liquid Architecture's goal, On Edge Contemporary Media + Performance Festival enjoys its 5th year of performance, sound, screen, new media and installation from nationally and internationally acclaimed artists.  ECC will kick off the whole thing, performing for the festival opening Friday July 3rd at Mofo Gallery.  And only $7!  On Edge is our ONLY Cairns/Queensland show, so DON'T MISS IT!

WHAT: On Edge Festival
WHEN: 3-12 July 2009 / ECC at festival opening on Friday, July 3rd
Mofo Gallery, McLeod St, Cairns QLD

ECC @ SubZERO Festival in San Jose

SubZERO Festival 2009After such a lovely trip south to San Mateo for the Maker Faire last weekend, how can we not sample what other treasures the south bay holds?

Set sail for SubZERO!

San Jose's SoFA district will host the SubZERO Festival, a "diy, artistically bent, hi/lo-techno-mashup" (ECC will handle the "hi" part, thank you).  Over 100 artists will represent, including Author&Punisher (which we posted a video of) with whom we'll share the William Street stage.  You are cordially invited to spin the booty-shaking Wheel Of Mashup and witness the head-turning VidiMasher 3000 for the first time in San Jose!  And if all the attention we got at Maker Faire and elsewhere is any indication, it'll be the just the thing for The ECC to make a good first impression.

There's plenty more representing -- even other Wii-hacking artists like us -- so check the Street Guide and make a night of it!

WHAT: SubZERO Festival
WHEN: Friday, June 5, 2009 / ECC @ 8pm-9:30pm
SoFA district in downtown San Jose, CA
