Faux Pas Quartet is an Indianapolis based free form improvisation ensemble whose sole purpose is the spontaneous expression of the unconscious.
The resulting music, quite literally, comes from the same stuff of which dreams are made. Archetypes of the psyche rising unfettered through the medium of the unconscious and becoming manifest in the shared conscious reality. The music is soothing, agitating, floating, rhythmic, funny, scary, sad, angry, melodic and atonal.
Relax, open up and take the time to flow with the music. Above all, give yourself permission to explore the irrational.

Earthgirl is the music persona of Jeannie Allen, an experimental electronic musician based in Indianapolis, Indiana. Her mission is to combine analog synthesizers, digital analog modeling, field recordings and vocals to create the sensation of traveling through time and space. Drawing on inspiration from many artists who sonically evoke emotion (ranging from Tangerine Dream to Bob Marley), she explores different genres of electronic music, with tracks that range from ambient to dance to psychedelic pop.

[dREKKa] aka Michael Anderson performs heavily experimental, cinematic soundtracks to films unmade where the accompanying images are unique to each listener; stylistically and empathetically similar to the soundtracks of Tarkovsky’s later films or the more abstract works of Coil and Cindytalk.

[dREKKa]‘s sound is hushed, cinematic, ambient, ethereal and industrial… at times discordant and menacing, more often communicative and inviting. It is performed at a moderate volume, perfect for any small setting, including homes, gallery spaces, stores… music for those who enjoy filling in the gaps and the imagery that accompanies it.
Deeply felt inspiration is drawn from such luminaries as CINDYTALK, COIL, FLYING SAUCER ATTACK, HAFLER TRIO, NURSE WITH WOUND… contemporary examples of shared sounds could include SVARTE GREINER, MACHINEFABRIEK, CHRIS WATSON, STILLUPSTEYPA, IRR.APP.(EXT.) and WOUTER VAN VELDHOVEN.
[dREKKa] has undertaken over a dozen European excursions since 2002, including ITALY in 2010/2011/2012 and over fifty shows in the NETHERLANDS and ICELAND alone.

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.
