electro-music 2005 - Philadelphia - June 3-5, 2005

General information: click here
We proudly announce electro-music 2005(TM), a three day conference/music festival to be held at the Cheltenham Art Center in Philadelphia, June 3 - 5, 2005. The program will include lectures, demos, jam sessions, and concerts.
The scope of this festival is very broad, covering all aspects of electro-music, experimental electronic music, including circuit bending, computer music, electro-jazz, modular synthesis, musique concrete, improvisation, noodles (generated or automatic music and algorithmic composition), multi-media, visual art and much more. The focus will be on participant involvement, sharing, community development, audience education, and great music.
The majority of the activities at electro-music 2005(TM) will be contributions of members of electro-music.com, an international community of composers and musicians that share a passion for electro-music. Electro-music.com is a place where artists and musicians meet, collaborate, support each other, sell CDs, and nurture their audiences. The community exists to create its own critical mass; to enable its members to develop music on their own terms. Electro-music is new music; still undefined; happening all over our planet. Electro-music is the natural result to techno/social trends: the availability of low-cost powerful electronic music technology, and the communication revolution enabled by the internet. Electro-music is not defined by a particular style or sound, but by its primary motivation being the joy of creation, and the love of electronic sounds. It can be slow and spacey, or fast and rhythmic; it crosses many genres.
The following artists and presenters will be participating at electro-music 2005. The final program schedule will be released by March 30, 2005.

A special forum on electro-music.com has been set up to plan this event. There is also a dedicated website. These will be places where our members can share what they would like to contribute, and make suggestions. We are in the process of extending invitations for participation to composers, musicians and technologists. Once we get a handle on who is coming and what they will contribute, we will finalize and publish a program and schedule.
The Cheltenham Art Center is an ideal facility for a multi-day event like this. (see: http://electro-music.com/forum/topic-4390.html). It is a beautiful building with a relaxed and informal ambience, located in a secluded wooded section of Philadelphia. We'll have two excellent concert venues and two galleries for our activities during the full three days. The Art Center is accessible by public transportation (bus and train) from central Philadelphia.
Philadelphia is a great historic American city with a rich cultural heritage and a very active electro-music scene. Philly has an excellent international airport and abundant accommodations. It is a wonderful cultural/tourist destination in its own right, and is situated between two others, New York City, and the Baltimore - Washington, DC area. Many people will want to combine electro-music 2005 with a tour of the eastern United States. Europeans, the exchange rates have never been better for you.
electro-music 2005 will be a defining event for our electro-music community. Not only will we ourselves find it enriching, informative, fulfilling and fun, but we will get unprecedented public exposure. It's time for the world to take notice of the electro-music scene. To paraphrase Dylan, something is happening and they don't know what it is. We are about to change all that.
This event will also serve as the annual Nord Modular users' group meeting which has previously been held in The Hague and London.
Keep a close eye out for the latest news about electro-music 2005 here on the dedicated site. Start doing whatever it is you've gotta do now to get yourself to electro-music 2005 and Philadelphia in June. This is going to be something you don't want to miss.

|yo electro-music! spiz here from Chicago-based, Spizm.
This event sounds remarkable in its conception and open
possibilities. I am wondering if there are already groups,
and artists booked as of yet. Spizm is all about the city
of philly. We had a great show with electro music's own,
M.E.S.S, and being from baltimore, i've always loved
heading up 95N to catch some philly jazz, techno, industrial
dance party, culture, and south st food. need i say more.
the DNB scene there is hot as well, which draws me there
instantly. Keep spizm in mind for some kind of electro-
acoustic jazz/idm/jungle jam session...possibly incorporating
any number/type of instrumentation over live drums and
bass--laptops, turntables, guitars, homemade moog/synths,
vocals/mc's...i know that this would one hot timale!
"jazz isn't dead, you just think it iz!"
