Fri Dec 13th Ultima Bazaar: Apocalypse [A/V theme night]
Posted on Monday November 18, 2019

Announcing…

||| ULTIMA BAZAAR |||

A new event concept featuring short sets from up to a dozen
artists creating and performing original music or video projections based on a specified theme.

The first showcase is on Friday December 13th with the theme…

APOCALYPSE

15-min apocalypse sets from artists

RUSSEL HOFFMAN
GLO PHASE
XYLANTHA
JOY TOUJOURS
MORGANTICS
JITTERS
PRIMITIVE CONSTRUCT
EPHEN
ALEX IS

paired with live visuals created by
KYLE THE SAINT

The concept:
• A general prompt / concept is released to the public. This is one word or very few words to allow open interpretation.
• Artists create a ~15 min set/piece based on that promptperform them live at the final showcase.
• Anyone of any level of experience can enter as long as they can perform/play a piece that fits the theme.
• Any genre is accepted, but please match the theme!
• Samples, synths, vocals or other audio sources are fine, but you’ll need to be self-contained. We’re thinking of something that can be performed with a laptop or gear in an approx 3×3 table space and have a single pair output. (we’re not externally micing – one output only).
• This isn’t a competition, but a thematic exhibition – have fun with it!

The final showcase party is set for
Friday, December 13th at brillobox.

If you’d like to sign up to participate, read the details below and then, DM https://www.facebook.com/ultima.bazaar.pgh or contact geoff.maddock+ultima.bazaar@gmail.com

More info on the showcase / party as the date gets closer!

Thanks!

||| Additional info for participants…

Participants of any level of experience are welcome, as long as you can produce a 15 min audio set on the theme. To submit, send me your real name and your performance name as well as an email for contact and any additional questions. If we get an abundance of responses (over the allotted number), I will ask for a demo from non-established artists.

We’ll be looking to fill up to twelve (12) 15-min audio slots, and up to eight (8) 30-min video slots.

I’ll have an open sign-up for one week, or until all of the slots have been filled in each category (audio and video). If we end up with more participants than slots, I’ll do a drawing to select participants, and offer anybody who did not make it first chance to participate in the next edition.

With 30 remaining days on Nov 13th, we’ll do a check in and finalize the lineup. Just want to make sure everybody who has signed up has some material in the works. If anyone has to drop out, we’ll revisit the people interested for additional participants.

Due to the number of sets we’d like to facilitate for this, we ask that all artists keep their setup to approximately 3’ x 3’ and provide one pair of outputs (ideally 1/4”, but we will provide conversion). There is no limitation on type gear, but please consider that there will be minimal set-up and breakdown time. We won’t be able to facilitate full bands, and ask that for this edition, each slot is filled by one person. The more fun and interactive a set you can put together the better!

Depending on interest we’ll also compile the results onto some sort of free or pay what you want digital release (this is 100% opt-in).

The first edition is scheduled for Friday December 13th at Brillobox, and the initial theme announcement is on October 10th 2019.

Thanks for your interest and stoked to see how this comes together!

||| FAQ
Q: Can i pre-record my set / video?
A: Yes, but making it interactive, either through controllers, performance, on the fly elements or something else is highly recommended! For video, a pre-rendered set is more acceptable, but live manipulation even better.

Q: Is this a competition?
A: Not a competition, but a showcase and theme party showing what local artists can do with a theme and two months of time. You should wow us, but fun is the bottom line!

Q: Can I do both an audio AND video set?
A: The intention is for participants to sign up for either a 15 min audio set or a 30 min video set. But if there are open slots, you can sign up for both.

Q: Can I plan a collaboration with an audio or video artist who is also participating?
A: If you’re both in and you want to have them match up, we’ll try to facilitate that, but depending on the complexity of the schedule, we can’t guarantee that.

Q: For the showcase, who is getting paid?
A: After any base costs for the venue etc., we’ll split any cover between all participants.

Q: What are the future themes going to be?
A: Open to suggestion, but some ideas: Robots, Space, Supernatural, Conspiracy, Animals/Nature

Fri Oct 4th Heavy Handed w/ N-Type & Joe Nice! @ Cattivo
Posted on Thursday September 26, 2019

Come one, come all, to Pittsburgh’s 2019 Heavybass title bout:
HEAVY HANDED

We bring 2 of the world’s best deep dubstep selectors in a match-up of epic proportions.

***HEAVYBASS DIVISION TITLE BOUT***
N-Type (Croydon London, UK) – Wheel & Deal Records / Rinse FM
Since the beginning of dubstep, N-Type has been truly instrumental in its progression as a DJ, producer and label boss. His heavy and dark sound is known to smash dancefloors to smithereens and this performance will no doubt, be the same.
https://soundcloud.com/n-type

Joe Nice (Baltimore, MD) – Gourmet Beats / Sub FM
Matching N-Type in nearly all categories, Joe’s musical selections are almost as infectious as his presence behind the decks. A true force to be reckoned with both mentally and physically, Joe’s gym bag will be overflowing with fresh dubplates to work over.
https://soundcloud.com/JoeNiceDJ

***WELTER WEIGHT DIVISION 3-WAY BOUT***
Cutups – Grime Set
Void – Dub Set
Varden Armstrong – Deep Dubstep

Event Details:
$15 limited advance tix / $20 at door

Cattivo – downstairs & non-smoking
146 44th St. (Lawrenceville)

Top quality sound re-enforcement by Mike Maddas

Heavy Handed is a collective dedicated to pushing the heavy, but mature sounds of deep dubstep, grime and dub.

Posted on Thursday September 26, 2019

Warehouse gig at Collision: email collisionpgh@gmail.com for address

LIKE A VILLAIN (PDX -> NYC)
Holland Andrews is a singer, composer, improvisor, multi-instrumentalist, visual artist and touring musician recently relocated from Portland, OR to New York City. Andrews, a self-taught extended-technique vocalist and musician, has garnered reputable attention for their lush array of vocalizations and sonorous arrangements that consist mostly of their voice, clarinet, and effects. The compositions of Andrews can begin sparsely, almost uncannily; a single measure to begin the momentum of which only builds and destabilizes, builds and restabilizes until, at a point of pure catharsis, when the layered orchestration has reached its completion, Andrews begins to wail, connecting to something unseen and powerful in full control of their own voice; a feat that feels both energetically raw and impressively curated. Andrews’s influences are as wide-reaching as their performance, ranging from Arvo Pärt, Stephen Sondheim, and Diamanda Galas to the experimental terrains of ambient, improvised and noise music.
