Ridgewood NY (Brooklyn / Queens)

A festival dedicated to noise and experimental music, Ende Tymes will feature over 40 artists in live performances, video screenings, workshops, discussions, and sound installations. With an emphasis on bringing in out-of-state artists to interact with established locals, the Ende Tymes Festival will expose younger artists and fans to older and more distant artists.  The festival will occur June 24-26 at the Silent Barn (a DIY music venue, established 2005) and Outpost Artist Resources (a video post-production resource center for artists, established 1990), both located in Ridgewood NY. 

The artists will present work that engages with the many forms of noise and experimental music: drone, avant-garde, electro-acoustic, harsh noise, digital & analog synthesis, soundtracks, installations.  In addition to the musical performances at Silent Barn, there will be screenings at Outpost of videos by selected artists as well as those chosen from the pool of a public call for works, including some with live performance.

We are asking for financial assistance to provide better artist fees, travel funding, local transportation, equipment rental, and food / refreshments.  We currently have door money from the ticket sales at Silent Barn to work with, but we need more.  The more funding we can raise, the more we can provide to the artists and the better the experience will be for all.  Any donation helps!!!  

If you are not familiar with noise as an art form - it's a different way of creating and appreciating sound, with a decidedly hands-on approach to designing sound, often leading to unique and profound results.  You can read more about it here - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Noise_(music)
