DICTAPHONIA FEST November 7, 2009

Hal McGee presents:
Dictaphonia Fest
Saturday, November 7, 2009
8:00 PM

The Laboratory
818 W. University Ave., Suite C
Gainesville, Florida 32601

A showcase of microcassette experimental audio art, featuring performances by participants in the Dictaphonia Microcassette Compilation Project.

Larry Bruce, the proprietor and Chief Scientist at The Laboratory, has confirmed the date. The Laboratory is a new cafe located in midtown Gainesville that serves wine, beer, coffee, espresso drinks, and gourmet sandwiches, and snacks.

Performers must use microcassette in some way in their performance and it must be a prominent part of the sound. There will be a 9-minute time limit on performances and performers will only be allowed to use minimal gear, with a plug and play aesthetic and quick gear setups and breakdowns. Performers will play through a small mixer and two 10-watt guitar amplifiers provided by me.

I do not yet have a confirmed list of performers because it is four months away and things can change but these Dictaphonia project participants have expressed interest in performing:

Kathy Burkett (Lady Lake, Florida)
Otolathe (Tampa)
Su Sous Toulouse En Rouge (St. Petersburg)
