X-Day logoIt always seemed like those fans of The Evolution Control Committee would have good overlap with The Church Of The SubGenius.  The long-running clench-klatch of Bob"-worshippers has been at it for decades and since 1998 have been expecting X-Day any year now, when the SubGenius faithful will be swept up in party UFOs while the remaining pinks and normals are clear-cut wholesale from the earth.

This year is 18X-Day and The Evolution Control Committee will join the throngs with our songs (again, that is -- we've been doing this for a few years now).  Hopefully the extra noise will help attract the UFOs for real this year; past years have fallen well short of the "Whole Camp Missing" headline desired for July 5 (presumably the date's certain, just not the year).  Regardless of success, it's a lot like sex: it's fun just trying.  And with bedmates like The Amino Acids, Ask Dr. Hal, Mystery Penis Of America, and Rev. Suzie The Fluzie, how can you miss?

WHAT: The Church Of The SubGenius X-Day XVIII
WHEN: June 30 - July 5, 2015 (ECC performs Friday July 3 at 10pm)
WHERE: Wisteria Campground, southern Ohio
HOW MUCH: (see their web page)

Starwood logoAnd then there's Starwood, the even-longer-running (35 years!) pagan festival which is conveniently at the same campground the following weekend.  SubGenius types have suggested there's good reason to think that the Starwood types would appreciate The ECC's participation so this year we're taking the hint.  The ECC will perform at Starwood and additionally lead a workshop called "How To Reproduce Without Having Children".

WHAT: Starwood 35
WHEN: July 7 - July 13, 2015
WHERE: Wisteria Campground, southern Ohio
HOW MUCH: (see their tickets page)

The Ingenuity Festival Cleveland returns
...and so does The ECC

The Evolution Control Committee has had great times performing at Cleveland's great IngenuityFest art & technology festival in the past (2008, 2009, 2011...) so when their call for artists came out for this year's event we applied, but then wondered -- what haven't we done already?

They've invited us so often before that we've performed every kind of show we've ever made (except for our radio show... hmmm) and we'd rather not repeat ourselves.  Then we remembered our great time earlier this year at Columbus Museum of Art's Connector Series, letting anybody and everybody come up to play with our custom-built music controllers, devices, and toys... ahhhh, good times.  Yes!  That's it!

So this coming weekend The ECC hauls up a full load of tech magic for you, yes YOU, to play with. Ever wanted to try your hand at our amazing VidiMasher 3000 (from our The Wheel Of Mashup shows)?  Or the Thimbletron?  The Object Turntable?  Come to Cleveland and play with these and more!

WHAT: IngenuityFest 2013 Art & Technology Festival
WHEN: This weekend, Saturday and Sunday (we are unlikely to make Friday)
:: Saturday, September 21 - Noon to Midnight (or as long as we can last)
:::: Sunday, September 22 - Noon to 6pm
WHERE: Lakefront Docks 30 & 32 (near Browns Stadium), Cleveland Ohio (map)


ECC Church Bell mashup live - last chance show!

Concert and Performance Dates

The Church Bell Flash Mob crew poses in victoryLast year The ECC's TradeMark G. created a composition for church bells which played throughout October 2012, climaxing in a Church Bell Flash Mob that added a beat-matched electronic track DJ'd live from the street below... unique, to say the least. That was part of the great Finding Time: Columbus Public Art 2012 project which included different bell compositions every month during 2012.

This Sunday there will be a concert of the six pieces from the last half of the year, featuring compositions by Derek DiCenzo, Brian Harnetty, Bobby Floyd and others. For ours we'll be restaging the electronic component as we did in October, a live duet of electronics on the street with the bells in the tower.  If you missed it at the flash mob, here's one last chance!  Don't worry about costumes; just come, listen, and enjoy.

WHAT:  "Finding Chime": The ECC Church Bell mashup live
WHEN:  This Sunday 2013.06.09 / 12:15pm
WHERE: Trinity Episcopal Church / corner of Broad & 3rd Streets / Columbus, OH



RURobot? Robot Art Show this Friday

RURobot? Art Show posterRobots!  Who doesn't like robots? Those shiny, lovable, and oh-so anthropomorphic icons of the future have given us decades of dreams of owning our own guilt-free slaves... as well as nightmares about them becoming our guilt-free subjugators.

They've also given us decades of art.  Years ago it was all science fiction, back when the term was so new they pronounced it "ro-butt" with no emphasis on either syllable.  But now we live in the future, where actual robots make many of your mass-produced goods and a few find a place in the geekier homes for vacuuming duties.  And although the Roomba isn't as wise-cracking and multipurpose as Rosie from The Jetsons, it nonetheless bodes well for a bright future of robot butlers and metal maids for all.

The Evolution Control Committee joins the celebration with a new live performance exploring the vocoder, that unique device that makes your voice sound like a robot. Expanding on our two-part radio special we combine DJing with discussion and readings all about the surprising history of the vocoder, using music and text from Dave Tompkins' excellent book How To Wreck A Nice Beach.  Learn a little while gettin' down to some great retro robot jams!

WHAT: RURobot? Robot Art Show (presented by Gallery 831 & Art Party Columbus)
WHEN: This Friday, June 7th 2013  /  6p-9p (ECC after 7pm)
WHERE: Clayspace/Gallery 831  /  831 S. Front Street, Columbus, Ohio 43206  [map]
HOW MUCH: ** Free! **
