The Indiana Electro-Music Group & the Irving Theater proudly announce the Third Midwest Electro-Music Experience (MEME) Festival being held in Historic Irvington at The Irving Theater. MEME is also supported by Sun King Brewery, World of Vapor Indy and Wyliepalooza Ice Cream Emporium.
MEME 2014 is bringing 38 of some of the world’s finest experimental electronic and electroacoustic musicians to Indianapolis, Indiana. They will be joined by local artists for two days of concerts, workshops, demonstrations and collaborations. Musical styles cover a broad spectrum, guaranteed to be creative and original. Live video art will accompany the concerts, for an immersive multi-media experience. The musicians employ a wide variety of electronic and acoustic instruments, from synthesizers and theremins to found objects and custom controllers. Saturday afternoon features workshops and an open collaboration stage.
IEMG is the local chapter of the international electro-music.com community. Electro-Music is new music comprised of synthesizers, homemade circuits, computers, voice, found objects, signal processors, wooden flutes, ambient recordings—virtually anything that makes a sound. It crosses many genres and is created out of the intrinsic need for artistic and spiritual expression. For information on other EM festivals happening all over the planet from NY to Cairo to Kansas City and points beyond as well as more info on the electro-music community general, go to http://www.electro-music.com.

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.

Bright, shiny, beatless wonder.

This one is kinda fucked up and narcotic sounding. Slow motion, falling, drifting, Muted, swirling, purple, black, gray. Clicky perc sounds. Cloudy and murky.
Faux Pas Quartet weekly post. Improvisation from Jan. 6, 2013. Bustling sci-fi, dark, metallic cityscape. @fauxpasquartet @mcsdnetlabel
Improvisation from 04-07-2014. Noisy, lots of percussion, voice, bass and some “compy” piano.
“Yestergone” from 03-2013
This week, Faux Pas Quartet began posting a new piece of music each week on Soundcloud. We figured with over 400 hours of recorded material we might as well start getting it out into the world. None of the music being posted has been released so it’s all fresh. The music will only be up for a week so give it a listen or a download.
