The ENDE TYMES FESTIVAL is an annual celebration of NOISE, EXPERIMENTAL MUSIC, and VIDEO ART. More than 40 NATIONAL and INTERNATIONAL ARTISTS will perform in 6 EVENTS over the course of 4 NIGHTS. This SECOND-ANNUAL EVENT provides an ACTIVE environment for artists and fans to RAGE to some of the BEST NOISE PERFORMERS in the WORLD.
Performances at Secret Project Robot will present a wide variety of EXPERIMENTAL MUSIC and NOISE ART: drone, avant-garde, electro-acoustic, harsh noise, digital & analog synthesis, and "unclassifiable". Live video playback and processing will be broadcast via their 6-PROJECTOR SURROUND VIDEO MATRIX and will BLOW YOUR FREAKIN MIND.
Events at Outpost Artist Resources will focus on SCREENINGS and LIVE PERFORMANCES of VIDEO ART and FILM. There is a public call for works - please see this link for more information: http://rhizome.org/announce/opportunities/58294/view/
WE NEED YOUR HELP!!! This event is made possible by the support of friends and fans like YOU.
WE ARE ASKING for FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE to provide TRAVEL FUNDING, BETTER ARTIST FEES, EQUIPMENT RENTAL, and FOOD/REFRESHMENTS. The MORE FUNDING we can raise, the MORE we can PAY to the ARTISTS, and the BETTER the EXPERIENCE will be for ALL. ANY and EVERY DONATION HELPS!!! We're producing this on a minimal budget, WILL YOU BE OUR SUGAR DADDY?
If you are not familiar with NOISE as an ART FORM - it's a different way of appreciating and creating sound, with a decidedly idiosyncratic hands-on approach, often leading to unique and profound results. You can read more about NOISE ART here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Noise_(music)
The current lineup includes an AMAZING group of ARTISTS: Astro (from Japan, just added!), Sudden Infant (DE), Cheapmachines (UK), Joseph Hammer (CA), Thomas Dimuzio (CA), Crank Sturgeon (ME), Katherine Liberovskaya (NY), Sickness (CT), R. Jencks (CA), +DOG+ (CA), Mike Shiflet (OH), Zaimph (NY), Telecult Powers (NY/LA), Maria Chavez (NY), Hyena Hive (QUE), Fatale (IL), work/death (RI), Skin Graft (OH), Dog Lady Island (MI), Mesa Ritual (NM), Husere Grav (TX), Paranoid Time (MI), Jeff Carey (MD), and many many more - please see the website for the full list. NOTE: Phill Niblock will not be able to perform unfortunately. We've left him in the video cos we love his work (and lovely beard) and also we're lazy.
