KCEM2014
Hosted by Kevin Kissinger and Shane Morris, the KC Regional electro-music.com  festival encompasses all styles of electronic music, DIY instruments, performances, collaborations, and demonstrations.

The KC Regional formed from the increasing need for a live performance outlet for experimental electronic music in the mid-western states. The festival is not limited to participants in the region alone, but does seek to consolidate and network with artists in the extended area. The intention is to create a cooperative community where artists and enthusiasts participate and benefit together.

Hosting both stereo and 5.1 surround sound, the Walnut Creek Clubhouse is a wonderful setting just of the Missouri River with the KC skyline on the horizon. The venue has large vaulted wooden ceilings, wonderful lighting, comfy couches, and great acoustics.

New Release: Immeasureable by onewayness & dRachEmUsiK

immeasurable_front_notext

Immeasurable is available as a CD and digital download from:
MCSD Netlabel (mcsdnetlabel.com)
Onomastic Records (onomastic.org)


Immeasurable is the second full-length collaboration from onewayness (Adam Holquist / Erie, PA) and dRachEmUsiK (Charles Shriner / Indianapolis, IN), following 2012’s critically acclaimed The Sound of Thunder, which Star’s End Ambient Radio named as one of their Significant Releases of 2013.

Immeasurable is a long-form piece in four movements, based on the brahmavihāras (the “four immeasurables”), a series of four Buddhist virtues and the meditation practices made to cultivate them.  Metta – Loving Kindness, the wish that all sentient beings, without any exception, be happy; Karuna – Compassion, the wish for all sentient beings to be free from suffering; Mudita – Empathetic Joy, the attitude of rejoicing in the happiness and virtues of all sentient beings; Upekkha – Equanimity, the attitude of not distinguishing between friend, enemy or stranger, but regarding every sentient being as equal.

The piece combines deep drones and ambience, percussive and dub elements, and analog warmth from acoustic guitars, bowed strings, vintage electric piano, voice, and shruthi box, to build an ambient, pulsing, sparkling and joyful whole.
