CEAIT Festival at REDCAT Feb. 7 and 8

REDCAT, CalArts' downtown center for contemporary arts, presents two nights of innovative electronic music featuring celebrated artists Bonnie Jones, Keith Fullerton Whitman and selections from South Korea's Balloon & Needle record label. CEAIT Festival 2013 will be held at the Roy and Edna Disney/ CalArts Theater Thursday, February 7 and February 8, 2013 at 8:30 pm.

The two different programs that make up this year's festival from the CalArts Center for Experiments in Art, Information and Technology (CEAIT) offer a triad of avant-garde techno musicmakers. The first night features Bonnie Jones, whose "no-input" style of sound-text performances make use of internal feedback mixers, cracked delay pedals, hacked electronics and other custom-made instruments as she short-circuits her board and plays her electronics in ways that manufacturers would never recommend.

The second night features Keith Fullerton Whitman's compositionally masterful electronica, which generates shimmering drones and deep waves of sound, together with improvised guitar. Both nights are anchored by selections from South Korea's Balloon & Needle record label, founded by members of Puredigitalsilence and Piwacot to highlight the pioneering musicians of Seoul's burgeoning experimental music scene.
