Finally back from tour and boy are my arms tired! (This joke is especially funny if you saw my set because it did make my arms tired)
Saturday will be the third installment of the 2018 Experimental Education Series. The brilliantly raucous Victoria Shen will be coming to town, showing off her music and leading a contact mic building workshop. I hope all of you can make it! The facebook event is here and all of the details are below.
The third show of the 2018 Experimental Education Series, a quarterly concert series with accompanying workshops designed to illuminate the often opaque genre of experimental music while simultaneously amplifying the voices of female and non-binary composers in experimental music.

ABOUT THE FEATURED ARTIST:
Victoria Shen is a visual artist and musician hailing from San Francisco and working out of New England. Shen's sound practice is concerned with the spatiality/physicality of sound and its relationship to the human body. Shen’s music floods its location acting as a form of sculpture. Her music features analog modular synthesizers (Flower Electronics), contact microphones, and other hand-built electronics. These instruments are designed to electronically reproduce chaotic systems, systems which are highly sensitive to small changes in their initial parameters. The resulting music eschews conventions in harmony and rhythm in favor of the extreme textures and gestural tones.
