Tonight Holocene presents "Ingredients: a Music and Video Art Invitational"
It's my wildest fantasy come true. I've long been dreaming up an "art battle"
where artists would be forced to create Iron Chef style with limited time and
resouces. Well, somehow Holocene has heard my cry and answered it. Tonight, 10
video artists and 20 musicians create original works in a limited time frame using
provided source materials. There will be two sections, one for sound artists,
and one for video artists. Contributors will be supplied with 10 visual or audio
samples, which they will in turn use as source material for an original piece
of music, sound, or video. Performances will be at least one minute long and no
longer than 5; no pre-arranged sounds or images can be used; only the
given source materials. The evening will be augmented
by DJs and performances, as well as installation pieces related to the event.
To top it all off, the whole thing is FREE to the over-21-year-old public!
Wednesday, July 20th • 9p • 21+ only

Speaking of Art Battles, there's also SCRAP's Iron Artist competition on July 23rd:
I was unable to attend this event, but I'm very interested to read comments from folks who did attend. Anyone?
I was only able to stop in for a half hour so I missed most of the works but the few pieces I saw/heard were great. Some familiar faces and lots of unfamiliar, too, which I liked. I know there were some PORT readers there (I saw you!). Perhaps they can offer a better recount.
