DOS game nostalgia @ Bazaar of the Bizarre: FrostBite Edition 2017

The itty bitty DOS game canvases have been wildly successful.

I’ve received such amazing feedback on them and many commissions throughout the year.

A new set will be ready for your viewing (and pawing) pleasure at the upcoming Bazaar of the Bizarre: FrostBite edition 2017.

Scroll down for a preview of new DOS Gamer Nostalgia canvases!

Plus come see many new original watercolour pieces and prints of older collections including the Live Wire Series!

I love this arts and crafts show so much!

It’s a wonderful community event, where many local designers, jewellers, artists, tinkerers and makers gather to network and share their wares. The December edition is the perfect time to score unique gifts and get inspired for the holiday season.

Join us December 10th at 6 Noble Street, on Queen Street West just west of Dufferin.

Free admission all day!

The Bazaar of the Bizarre is brought to you by premier community supporter Plastik Wrap.

Modular Synthesizer by Bit Reduction

Burning Chrome featuring Bit Reduction & Prospero electronic improv sessions

On September 12th, Bit Reduction and Prospero took to the stage at Burning Chrome.

Bit Reduction

For this performance he patched a modular synthesizer system from scratch, building the sound up cable by cable, using very little external gear. The only preconceived notion was to exploit feedback paths. As such, the result was unpredictable, harsh, and largely unpleasant – in the best of ways.

The result was an eclectic and memorable experience that left everyone calling for more. Follow Craig Renaud’s project on his soundcloud page and stay tuned for future performances.

Prospero

Born as a solo project in August 2001 under musician and DJ Wade Anderson, Prospero’s music fuses traditional industrial electronics with a variety of acoustic percussion and exotic instruments. In their fifth album “Paradise or Apocalypse” Prospero continues to explore new themes galvanized by the addition of tribal and folk elements as well as vocals from Sandford and Veela.

What is Live Improv?

The idea is for the musician to approach the show with no pre-conceived idea’s about re-producing tracks. Some elements including sounds, instruments and patterns may have been researched but no practiced and no sequenced. There is no plan about what to play or when. What happens at the show will be all created and programmed on the fly.

BIT REDUCTION

Power noise & gritty ambient project, a mesmerizing blend of distortion and harmony.

PROSPERO

Born as a solo project in August 2001 under musician and DJ Wade Anderson, Prospero’s music fuses traditional industrial electronics with a variety of acoustic percussion and exotic instruments. In their fifth album “Paradise or Apocalypse” Prospero continues to explore new themes galvanized by the addition of tribal and folk elements as well as vocals from Sandford and Veela.

Prospero has done this type of show twice in the past. Once with Displacer in 2012 at a Darkrave and once solo at Live Event Sunday’s at the Savage Garden Night Club.
