About this project

What the heck is a monome? Click above to find out!

gridfestival.com

In the spirit of collaboration, as it is exemplified by artistic endeavor, the monome community is once again organizing a large scale event showcasing the broad spectrum of talent of monome users. Artists from around the country and Canada will be attending and performing in a series of concerts and workshops to be held at Corazon and Santa Fe Complex.

Kickstarter funds will be used to offset some of the cost of artists' airfare and accomodations, venue rentals, sound equipment rental, promotional materials and supplies for the arduinome (monome clone) build workshop.

Schedule of Events:

Friday, May 6: Edison (San Francisco), Making the Noise (Boston), and Portable Sunsets (NYC) bring in the beats with live sets of original electronic music at Corazon. Darkseeker (Edmonton) will start off the night with a DJ set of mellow dubstep and Cigarette Operahouse (Toronto) will close with some mashed-up, electro beats. 8pm, @ Corazon, 401 S Guadalupe, 505-983-4559.

Saturday, May 7: Learn the basics of getting started with a monome at the Santa Fe Complex. Afterwards, presenters will discuss various techniques of monome integration with the music software, Ableton Live. Subsequently, monome artists will give short presentations on their setups and allow for hands on interaction with the devices. Performances follow by The Sweaty Caps (Los Angeles), Lokey/noiseflowr (Calgary/Edmonton), Watson (Santa Fe), Anenon (Los Angeles), TheAlphaNerd (Toronto), Cigarette Operahouse (Toronto), % (NYC), Altitude Sickness (Los Angeles). Workshops 1 - 6pm, Performances 8pm-130am, @ Santa Fe Complex, 632 Agua Fria St, 505-216-7562.

Sunday, May 8: Learn to build a monome like device yourself at Santa Fe Complex. Denver based Mike Stacey (Circle Six) will be leading a four hour workshop where you will learn how to create an arduinome (monome clone). All parts will be supplied, including custom enclosures for the devices and participants will leave with a fully functional grid controller. 2 - 6pm,@ Santa Fe Complex.
