LIVESTREAM featuring Gordon W (Berlin), Still Boys (Toronto) on Sunday, Nov. 21 at 4 pm ET

Gordon W will stream live from Berlin and the Still Boys will stream from the Funny Farm in Meaford, Ontario

or later on the EE Youtube channel https://www.youtube.com/user/electriceclectics1

4 PM ET: Gordon WSmells Like Teental Spirit”. Gordon W is a cooking-performance artist and musician who traveled to India in the 1970s to study Hinduism, Indian cuisine and Tablas. During the 1980s/90s he was active in Toronto performing many “bread-actions” and culinary interventions such as the Chapati Cart, which was a fixture on Queen Street West. He has continued to cook and perform in Berlin since 1995. He has performed with Jack Smith, Henning Christiansen, Tony Conrad, Alexander Hacke, Gordon Monahan and Laura Kikauka.



4:30 PM ET: Still BoysBreakfast in Bognor”. Still Boys is a grand cyclopean pop spectacle. Members of a well-groomed boy band have been fused into the facial features of a pyramid-shaped alien being that performs music and enthusiastic dance.  With equal doses of catchy riffs, grotesque prop drama, and absurd lyricism, Jason the Eye (Charlie Murray), D-Wayne the Lips (Sebastian Butt), and Randy the Tongue (Randy Gagne) steer the audience down a delicious rabbit hole. 

Breakfast in Bognor finds the boys in their first virtual rendezvous, marooned on the sprawling grounds of The Funny Farm. Battling the elements, they are forced to entertain scarecrows in order to survive.  With no humans in sight, will they subsist on locally foraged straw effigies? Or will they be forced to travel to Bognor for brunch? Featuring a special guest appearance by Frosty Valentine.

LIVESTREAM featuring Alexis O’Hara, Bill Coleman & Gordon Monahan Sunday, Oct. 24 at 4 pm ET

Live from somewhere in the Laurentian Mountains, Quebec, and Peterborough, Ontario

Watch it live at:

/experimental_sound_studio

or https://www.twitch.tv/electriceclecticsfestival

or later on the EE Youtube channel https://www.youtube.com/user/electriceclectics1

4 PM ET: Alexis O’Hara is a transdisciplinary artist whose work comprises elements of cabaret, pop music, spoken-word, stand-up comedy, vocals and electronics, photography and installation.



4:45 PM ET: This collaboration by Bill Coleman and Gordon Monahan uses brainwave sensing technology to produce sound, music, and movement. An EEG interface worn by dancer-choreographer Coleman sends data to several Max/MSP software patches in real-time. As Coleman shifts through various states of mental and physical concentration and movement, he is able to produce and control alphabrainwaves while dancing. He uses these alpha waves in conjunction with Monahan’s software manipulations, to produce various responses in musical instruments such as piano and percussion, to control the fading of stage lights, and to control sound spatialization and audio processing, all in realtime. Monahan simultaneously controls several Max/MSP software patches on stage that harness Coleman’s brain signals to sculpt soundwaves, light, instrumental composition and kinetic actions into a progressively layered multi-media artwork.

Historical note:

This piece follows in the tradition of brainwave music composition pioneered by Alvin Lucier, David Rosenboom, Richard Teitelbaum, and others, beginning in the 1960s. In fact, the history of brainwaves and sound reproduction dates back to 1928, when the British scientist Edgar Adrian (1889–1977) successfully sonified human brainwaves (EEG) in laboratory experiments.
