    i will be playing a show to celebrate the grand opening of my friend's store, AEQUANIMITAS, located at 811 E. Burnside #119, on 2010-11-05 (friday) around 8:00 PM.

    monome beats played within a geodesic dome accompanied with improvisational dancing from the Northwest Professional Dance Project. we haven't rehearsed this at all; should be interesting.

  • sounds fun. in spirit!

  • Planning on attending. Thanks for the heads up.

  • i played a dome show at Together Gallery a few years back... i wonder if it's the same dome?

  • ~~~~~~~~~ video please ~~~~~~~~~~~

    @mapmap — i remember that show! twas a sweet dome, quite huge. the one i'll be using will be somewhat smaller:

    i do have a bigger one, but it's a bit too unwieldily to transport in its current form:

  • that's sweet. i dig the dome and the trippy dancing..

    also % rocking out indian style is the kittie's titties, he looks real comfy

  • i looked at the first tumblr link there to find out what the dome was like and i didn't really get it. but watching the video, it looks really cool. kind of a cosy fort without walls.

    @ % - are you running everything out of the little guitar amp or something?

  • and really good stuff too! forgot to say!

  • micro cube!!!

  • thanks eeerbody • • • it was a really fun show, one of my personal favorites. this was my first time running everything out of the dome; it felt totally awesome. and the dancers did some wicked wigglin'

    @bononcinid — yo, thanks for the video! & thanks for coming out; apologies if i was not around to say hello.

    @stephen — i used my housemate's makeshift PA + the microcube for a center channel.

  • so many rhythms ;; so much wiggling ;; portable space

    i can imagine you sitting in the dome for hours on end bashing out incredible sounds.. seems like a wonderful breeder of fresh ideas — thinking inward, but without the solid walls to allow the sounds to travel out into the ether...

  • GAHHH
    i live in Ptown....why the hell didnt i find this before i missed the show...guh.

  • That video is sick...

    ...everything about it.

  • tehn: please invent a teleporter for us east coasters

    i dunno how many times i wish that

  • @%

    the whole thing is sick
    but

    from 2:50 onward
    embodies everything i love about beats

    the skratching at the end? what??!!!
