Still from I Am Sitting In A Room

GLI.TC/H is an international gathering of noise & new media practitioners in Chicago from September 29 thru October 03, 2010! GLI.TC/H is a physical and virtual assembly of artists, hackers, moshers, dirty mediators, noise makers, circuit benders, p/h/i/l/o/s/o/p/h/e/r/s, and those who find wonder in that which others call broken. GLI.TC/H seeks: Realtime + time-based performances (audio/video), utilizing broken/bent technologies/strategies. Workshops, sharing knowledge of hardware/software hacking, cracking, breaking, kludging, piracy, & tool building. Artworks and Projects, artware, videos, games, films, tapes, code, interventions, screen-captures, systems, websites & installations. Texts, lectures, essays, code, articles, & hypermedia.

I’m really excited to be attending the festival to meet other glitchers and hackers. If you’re in the Chicago area or otherwise just interested in keeping up with the festival I highly recommend keeping watch of the GLI.TC/H blog for info of events and exhibitions happening at the festival

When I Saw Pavement

All the way back in May I went to see a band called Pavement. About two months later I finally finished off a mini zine documenting parts of my time there.

If you know your way around jpdftweak or other imposition software you can even combine it into a rather awesome poster!

Speaking of zines, I’m helping to organise the Birmingham Zine Festival that’ll be taking place in September. If you make zines you should get in contact through that website.

I was at Reading Festival this year dontcha know. It was a great lineup this year, though I’d seen most of the bands already so didn’t both seeing much after RATM and QOTSA on Friday.

What I always find funny is watching the gates to the arena open and the rush of people dashing to the stage:
