HEX-A-DECIMAL (Toronto Experimental)
A chance to witness a special performance piece Josh based entirely around the synth that he bought off Mike years ago that led to their friendship. According to Josh “Its pretty unusual, but i think Mike would have had it no other way”
INFINITY’S ASTRUM (Ottawa Live Instrumental Modular)
Nick Doyle (a true gem in the Ottawa synth scene) is back performing not-of-this-world instrumental compositions on his Eurorack Modular Synthesizer. No one can tame a modular beast like Nick. Expect unholy noises held together with commensurable & hypnotic electronic rhythms.
ONLOOKER (Ottawa Working Class Electronics)
synth wizardry from Ezekiel Hagar. Minimal techno, techouse, acidhouse. Zeke will be doing some live analog (modular) shenanigans mixed with of his own studio productions
ANNIE SOCORIA (Ottawa Experimental Audio & Visual Feedback)
4 track cassette, Dictaphone, obsolete Palm Pilot PDA, Modular Synths, Video Feedback… circuit bending experimentation at its best. Excited for their 1st performance at S.O.S.
PLUS we will be showing footage of MUFF WIGGLER’s final performance:
We are also working to live stream this event so that muffwiggler.com community members and synthesizer enthusiast from all over the world can join in on this celebration. Stay tuned for details.
