ELECTO ELECTRO 2020 – Interactive Workshop and Artist Talk

Electo Electro 2020 is an interactive installation combining audience participation, music, news footage, and politics. The project allows participants to remix videos from political rallies, debates, and news in a structured sixteen beat loop. The touchscreen design is a parody of the system employed by the Accuvote, a voting system that is difficult to audit and susceptible to hacking. The parody continues into the format of the installation itself which will resemble a polling station. There will be an artist talk at 6:00 followed by a Max MSP Jitter workshop at 7:30 pm.

VIRTUAL TUESDAY NIGHT RECORD CLUB: Stevie Wonder: Songs in the Key of Life

We have decided to continue with Record Club in virtual format using the ZOOM app. When you register you will be provided the meeting link to join the conversation. It’s just like book club but with albums! With new advances in technology, the way we consume music through our devices, apps and on demand streaming services like Pandora, Spotify and iTunes is making the idea of the “album” as an art form extinct. Get together with other music enthusiasts on Tuesday nights to discuss some of the greatest records of all-time! Listen to the album beforehand and then come prepared to discuss. This event will feature Stevie Wonder: Songs in the Key of Life

Go Now! The Music of The Moody Blues LIVE streamed from the Harlequin Theatre

Gordon Marshall, drummer with The Moody Blues for over 25 years, knew that there was a hunger in the market for Moody Blues music.  To fill the void, he put together an amazing group of musicians and formed the band GO NOW!, a tribute to the music of The Moody Blues. Mick Wilson, the lead singer of GO NOW!, was the lead singer with 10cc for over 20 years.  Gordon and Mick are joined on stage by Patrick Duffin, Ryan Farmery and Nick Kendall, and together recreate the magical music we all know including all the major hits.  With 25 years experience with The Moody Blues, Gordon has created true-to-the-original arrangements, making every performance truly magical. The live streamed performance at the Harlequin Theatre in London marks the first time since early spring that the band will come together and perform, on stage at this beautiful theatre, with a brand new, never before seen concert! One-third of all profits made from your purchase will go directly to supporting the Center for the Arts!
