The ECC drops into our hometown Columbus Ohio this Friday!  Longtime sound pals Jeff Central and Stevie Seven opening!

This will be a unique, one-of-a-kind show where we play new music from our new album All Rights Reserved and also deconstruct and dissect each song, revealing some of the sources, samples, and inspirations behind each.  Hope to see you this Friday for an unusually personal ECC show!

Soundasaurus Festival (Calgary)

We're pretty psyched about visiting Calgary, Alberta (Canada) less than a week away!  No, it's not because we love way-below-freezing weather -- but because of the Soundasaurus Festival! Best of all, it will be our rare Nosferatu soundtrack show (aka Reels Of Steel) which we've done just once in the last six years.  We'll also participate in a group Q&A.  There's also sound installations and other events, all at the Epcor Centre for the Performing Arts.

EPCOR CENTRE's Soundasaurus Festival presents

Evolution Control Committee: Reels of Steel and guests
Thursday, January 20, 2011 at EPCOR CENTRE's Engineered Air Theatre
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. 

Guest: 

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: 

Luba Diduch 
I saw you drown...in the Sargasso Sea, is an installation piece employing a microphone and sound booth where environmental sounds and vibrations are recorded and remixed with underwater recordings. 

Dr. Thomas Lawrence 
Three Songs of a Green Eucharist is a soundscape based on spiritual music compositions recorded over three years.

DIENSTbar LogoOur final public stop in Europe: Berlin.

Now that our time in Warsaw is over, we've arrived in Berlin to enjoy Silvester and one last chance to share The ECC with the EC.  We'll set up the VidiMasher 3000 and to jam at the DIENSTbar event tomorrow, along with Hilot Lilanth and Semerssuaq.  Not in Berlin?  Listen online!  The event will be broadcast on FM radio and internet from midnight to 2am (that's 3p-5p in California) ending with a blind date, pitting The ECC on a duet with a mystery musical date!

This is your ONLY chance in Berlin to see what an ECC show is like!

DIENSTbar & Salon Bruit e.V. & NK

presenting

The Evolution Control Committee 
Based in San Francisco and founded by Mark Gunderson (a.k.a. TradeMark G.) in Columbus, Ohio, in 1986. It typically uses uncleared and illegal samples from various sources as a form of protest against copyright law. They also produces numerous audio experiments, such as the disfiguring of compact discs in live performance, known as "CDestruction", and has produced a few video works as well, ranging from re-edited 50's corporate shorts to a Teddy Ruxpin reciting the works of William S. Burroughs. Other activities include culture jamming. They are one of the pioneers of the mash-up or bootleg, where two or more songs are mixed together into a new track.
The Wheel of Mashupis is their latest booty-shaking incarnation, mashing-up unlikely pop music combinations into dance floor mayhem. It’s mixed up live: The audience spins The Wheel Of Mashup to create new mash-ups, mixed instantly with The ECC's amazing VidiMasher 3000

Hilot Lilanth
Is an installation-artist and musician, living and working in Berlin. He is using circuit-bending-devices and effects for a set from minimal music to an abattoir of electronic improvisation.

Semerssuaq
Are WJ Meatball (Jealousy Party, Sistemi Audiofobici Burp) and JD Zazie (B Unit, Sistemi Audiofobici Burp). The freeform Cut’ n Roll duo was born in Florence at the end of the 90′s at the Soul Limbo Studio based in C.P.A. Fi-Sud. From that improvised, freeform/rock and electronic music scene, they developed their technique manipulating sound using basically dj tools.

From midnight on Salon Bruit e.V. will hold a broadcasting of that event for 2 hours with music, interviews and another "Blind Date"-session.
Via FM 88,4 MHz or 90,7 MHz in Berlin and via internet - live from NK.

VidiMasher set at Przetwory (Recycles) 5

Concert and Performance Dates

Monday, 06 December 2010 08:53

Przetwory (Recycles) 5 event posterPoland may not be the first country you'd imagine to be green (in the recycling sense of the word), but this weekend marks the 5th year of their international Przetwory (Recycles) Festival.  Artists will spend a few days remaking unwanted materials into amazing works of art and design, to be judged by an international jury of fine arts movers & shakers.  Hosted in a giant warehouse in the Praga district of Warsaw, the event will draw an audience of thousands.

The ECC will represent at this Maker-Faire-style event with the VidiMasher 3000, using it to create something more than a DJ set, but short of a full performance.  This is your best chance in Warsaw to see what an ECC show is like!

PRZETWORY/RECYCLES 5

OPENING TIMES
Artists start their work on Thursday and Friday (9th and 10th of December)
RECYCELS 5 exhibition will be open for the public
on Saturday (11th of December) between 3pm-8pm
on Sunday (12th of December) between 12am-7pm

[...] After four-year struggle related to organizing RECYLES event we can easily position ourselves on the radical other end of the rainbow towards mass production. We are promoting totally different approach to the product by supporting D.I.Y. idea and by endorsing unique design solutions.

This year we are willing to go one step further by asking the artists a provocative question: HOW TO SURVIVE?

This year‘s fifth edition of the RECYCLES festival will have an international rank.

Organizers with the support of Culture Institutes from England, Spain, France, Netherlands and Latvia invited to Warsaw artists from all over the Europe, who together with Polish designers will ‘recycle‘ during the festival.  [...]
