This month we are very fortunate to have the multi-talented Matt Nish-Lapidus aka New Tendencies with us talking about and performing with some very unusual instruments. He will be bringing along an assortment of Ciat-Lonbarde doodads, including the Cocoquantus and Plumbutter, so that he can demonstrate that nobody really knows how they work. He’ll cover the basics of playing them, their different components, some fun patch basics, and how to integrate them with your other systems. He will also perform!
There is always room for more music! Bring your gear, show it off, ask questions, get answers, play a short set! If you are open to doing a short impromptu, improvised set with someone else who brought there gear, let us know… stranger things have happened!
About Matt – he is a musician, artist, and designer focused on exploring our relationships with technology. He has his own practice, teaches art and design at the Copenhagen Institute for Interaction Design, and is the lead curator of digiPlaySpace at TIFF. Matt has done some very cool things and you can find out more about him along with links to some of his music at his web site here.
A short word about Arraymusic. They have been very kind to Frequency Freaks by sponsoring us in the use of their space. This is a benefit to both Frequency Freaks and Arraymusic. However, they have run into some financial difficulty this year. If you are interested in helping out, and every small amount does help, please follow this link. If you get the opportunity to leave a note or message please let them know that you attend or follow Frequency Freaks.
Looking forward to seeing you all soon!
