TradeMark at Trinity Church[[ Update 2012.10.26: Rain shmain, we're doing it anyway! Actually chance of rain drops to 10% by 5pm, so come! ]]

TradeMark G.'s composition for church bells is currently ringing throughout downtown Columbus from the bells of Trinity Episcopal Church across from the Ohio statehouse, part of the great Finding Time: Columbus Public Art 2012 project. TradeMark's piece plays through the end of October, with a closing reception on October 27 which I'm giddy with excitement over -- 'cuz we're gonna have a Church Bell Flash Mob.

At exactly 5pm this Saturday 2012.10.27 we will be on the street in front of the church (corner of Broad & 3rd), a motley collection of musicians, stilt-walkers, oddball artists, and a cast of short-attention span witnesses to this ten minute duet of church bells and electronic beats.  That's right -- beatmatched bells, tempo locked and in sync.

Ever heard that before?
No you haven't.

And likely won't ever again.  Don't miss this unique event, and don't be late -- the bells go off automatically at 5:02pm so we must be on time.  Don't bother showing up at 5:10pm; we'll be done and on our way to the Grass Skirt tiki bar for drinks & snacks to celebrate.

WHAT:  Church Bell Flash Mob
WHEN:  This Saturday 2012.10.27 / 5PM EXACTLY!
WHERE: Trinity Episcopal Church / corner of Broad & 3rd Streets / Columbus, OH
HOW MUCH: Free!  And show up in costume!

Here's a video of the full church bell composition for you to practice your street dance moves to:


Big thanks to Trinity Church and their carilloneur Nick!


ECC @ Floorian album release show this Saturday

Floorian show posterThe Evolution Control Committee... in a psychedelic rock show?

Why not?  "The weirder, the better" as psych-rock band Floorian put it to us, describing how they'd like their album release show to be.  This Saturday's show celebrates their release of their new album Cosmosiac, and jangly popsters Psychic Wheels are also on the bill.  Floorian's been around since 1997, refining their sound into "an ideal late-night listening experience" (as The Big Takeover described their previous album).

A TradeMark observation: This show has a dangerous range, in a good way... in Europe, ECC frequently shared the bill with a wide variety of bands in many genres.  In the USA, it's often much narrower.  Nice to get on a local bill like this.  :-)

I can tell you that The ECC will bring the VidiMasher 3000.
I can't tell you just what you'll hear come out of it.
This is the last ECC show for the near future.

WHAT: Floorian album release party w/The ECC and Psychic Wheels
WHEN: This Saturday July 28th, 2012
WHERE: Rumba Cafe / 2507 Summit Street / Columbus, OH
