One week to go before I head off to the Electro-Music festival. It’s remote location at Greenkill Retreat Center in Huguenot NY has limited cell signal (it is a retreat center after all), but I’ll try and offer some live tweet coverage on http://twitter.com/markmosher.
If you are in the NY area you should try and come. Press release is below and my show report from last year is here.
The electro-music festival, known as the "Woodstock of electronic music," is the world's premiere event for experimental electronic music. Now in it's seventh year, this year's gathering features three mind-bending days of innovative electronic music concerts, seminars, workshops, demonstrations, jam sessions, video art, a laptop battle, and a swap-meet. Action starts at 1pm on Friday, September 9 and runs until after midnight on September 11. Musical activities will be running continuously throughout the three days of the festival.
electro-music 2011 takes place at the Greenkill Retreat Center in Huguenot, New York. On-site lodging and meals are available. Tickets range from $35 for a single day to $360 for a 3-day pass including meals and lodging.
