4-99 logoAs we settle into our artist-in-residency here in Warsaw, we are starting to meet people of all sorts of artistic persuasions.  One kindred spirit goes by the name of Micha? Libera, and under the guise of Fundacja Cztery Dziewiecdziesiat Dziewiec he moderates a series of panel discussions on topics that you evolvers would appreciate -- his previous one was on John Oswald.  And the next one?  Subversion and Dispepsi, the 1997 Negativland album.

The ECC's TradeMark G. and Christy Brand will join Jacek Staniszewski in a discussion moderated by Micha? Libera on Tuesday October 12th at the Zach?ta National Gallery in Warsaw.

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

Greetings evolver, and hello from Warsaw.

Yes indeedy, The ECC's Poland headquarters are now operational and in a few hours TradeMark and Frilly will prove it.  This week's episode of The Sound Of Plaid will be live from the Centrum Sztuki Wsp√≥lczesnej (aka the Center for Contemporary Art) in Ujazdowski CastleWe'll still getting our feel for things here, and missing gear like mic stands have caused us to go rogue with some inventive alternatives, like in the photo to the right.  With that in mind, this week's theme is: ROGUES.

As previously announced, the week's live show will now be Thursdays at 9am west coast, noon east coast, and 6pm here in Warsaw.  The DFM chat room is a great way to find us then.  Previously we would often be in the chat room for the repeat, but since the repeat show is now at 4am on our Wednesday mornings, that's a lot less likely nowdays.

Many chances to hear the show, and if you can't make the times below, you can hear it at The Sound Of Plaid Archives later in the week.


LIVE Thursdays on DFM Radio:

9a-11a PDT
noon-3p EDT
1800-2000 GMT

  ...and DFM's Tuesday repeat: 8p-10p PDT
11p-1a EDT
0500-0700 GMT
  Sundays on KAOS Austin:
11a-1p PDT
  1p-3p CDT
1200-1400 GMT
  Thursdays on Shouting Fire:

6p-8p PDT
9p-11p EDT
0300-0500 GMT

Maker FaireT'is the season to be geeky
-la-la-laaa la D I Y...

Yes it's that time of year again... spring is in the air... probably fired from some crazy spring-shooting canon.  And that kind of thing would perfectly embody the aesthetic of Make Magazine's Maker Faire, a juggernaut of an annual event blazing a path somewhere between Burning Man and a really, really cool science fair.  And this year the attendance will likely exceed both -- even Burning Man has never cracked 50,000, and Maker Faire is expecting 65,000+.

65,000+ geeks.

Geeks, nerds, mad scientists -- when you're one of them (and I am) those words are compliments.  Make Magazine has unified that whole motley DIY crew under the flag of "makers", and the Maker Faire is your chance to watch them emerge from basements everywhere with new inventions, and in spite of the duct tape and zip ties holding it together, one of them might completely revolutionize the world of energy... or computing... or music, or light, or textiles, or... getting the point?  The Faire is packed with a huge variety of the greatest, weirdest tinkerings from every hue of the smarty-pants spectrum.

And The ECC has been part of it from the beginning, the literal poster boy showing off our Thimbletron to thousands.  Now we get the pleasure of debuting our VidiMasher 3000 before the geekerati, and if our fantastically fun shows from this year are any indication, this should be a show that should NOT be missed!

WHAT: The ECC's Wheel Of Mashup & VidiMasher 3000 at Make Magazine's Maker Faire
WHEN: Saturday and Sunday, 30 & 31 May 2009 / ECC: 7pm Saturday on the West Stage
WHERE: San Mateo County Expo Center (i.e., Fairgrounds)
HOW MUCH: Day pass $25 / student etc. discounts available
