January 29 in Edmonton


MILE ZERO DANCE presents “BUST” an inter-disciplinary evening of performance and arts!

BUST is curated by Edmonton's original sound twister Shawn Pinchbeck. Shawn Pinchbeck is an internationally known sound and multimedia artist who has been active in Edmonton putting together diverse evenings of performance and festivals of electronic art and music since the mid-1980's. For BUST, he puts on his curator hat and has lovingly assembled a few favorite local and Canadian acts.

BUST is a collection of diverse cutting edge performances and visual art
featuring: sound art, electronic music, circuit bending, dance, performance art, visual art, VJ'ing, interactivity, and installation art.

On the program is sound performances by Vector Rails, Robot Scout (St. John's), Shawn Pinchbeck and Eryn Tempest, Ken Gregory (Winnipeg) with dance by Celine Cattoën-Gilbert, Sonja Myllymaki and Karen Porkka, Zebra Pulse, Mixtur with dance by Gerry Morita, and Wayne DeFehr. There's also visuals by film projectionist Patrick Arès-Pilon, prints by Caitlin Richards and Eryn Tempest, and the Canadian premiere of the computer interactive sound, video and dance installation The Bather by Chris Driedzic (St. John's), Susanna Hood (Toronto) and Shawn Pinchbeck.

This event should not be missed for lovers of cutting edge sound performance, dance and visual art. It's sure to continue the smashing success of Mile Zero Dance's Salon Series; making a fun and diverse evening with some of Edmonton's grooviest up and coming and established artists. See you there!

Art's Birthday 2011 a few pics

My hat for the Hat making contest! I was an organizer so couldn't officially win but as an instigator of the idea I had to make a hat. The skull is animated by a couple servos and a microcontroller. The head moves around and bobbles on a spring. The jaw moves up and down and there is one LED eye.

Every birthday party should have cake! Our lovely host Miss Lizzy Lala serves it up!

DJ Rob Volar provided awesome tunes all evening!

Jaymez provided awesome visuals all night too.

Every birthday needs presents! in Vienna Austria organizes a pool of presents for Art every year. AB2011

Mine is here. Birthday Song

It's that time of the year! A time to celebrate all that Art gives to us. A great way to start the year.

"This year our theme is Holus Bolus, meaning all together, all at once;
whole, in one big lump. Wear your own whimsical handmade hat to win big prizes (we have jurors, it's a serious thing), or make one at the party, at the Table of Imaginative Materials.
