Prairie Wires Modular (PWM) gives signal boost to Prairie-based experimental audio artists

Inaugural event 'Drone at the Global Market' brings experimental music spotlight to Brandon Manitoba

Brandon, Manitoba, Canada -- Prairie Wires Modular (PWM) is a new music and art organization created to shine a spotlight on emerging Prairie-based experimental artists with a focus on modular synthesis, experimental electronic music and sound art.

PWM’s inaugural event Drone at the Global Market on May 25, 2019 will fill downtown Brandon with some new and interesting sounds. Organized as part of International Drone Day celebrations, the event —beginning at 2:00pm at the Global Market (1215 Rosser Avenue)— will showcase local artists experimenting with drone music including Moon Shape Noise (modular synthesizer), Jeff Smith (guitar) and Abby-Jade (cello duo). The event is free, so bring a chair, blanket or yoga matt to relax and enjoy the drones. Attendees are also encouraged to participate in the Drone Jam at the end of the performances. Program and map information can be found at http://www.prairiewires.ca/droneday

“The recent resurgence in popularity of modular and semi-modular synthesis is exciting. It’s evident in large cities around the world, it’s all across the internet and in the air waves,” said Prairie Wires Modular founder Brendon Ehinger. “Prairie Wires Modular is bringing these synthesizer happenings to Brandon, first with Drone at the Global Market and then throughout the summer with even more local events planned. Great things are happening on the Canadian Prairies.”

Recognizing the unique intersection between art and experimental music that modular and semi-modular synthesis represents, Winnipeg expat, electronic musician and graphic designer Brendon Ehinger established PWM to promote and present artists, musicians and events in the Prairies. Based in Brandon, Manitoba, PWM is positioned to serve as a hub and meeting place for artists from across the prairies. Situated almost half way between Winnipeg, MB, and Regina, SK, and with an airport servicing direct flights between Brandon and Calgary, AB, Brandon is an accessible location and a logical centre for Prairie modular enthusiasts to congregate.

In addition to Drone at the Global Market on May 25, PWM has a two day Modular Meet-up planned for June 14-15 which will feature free concerts from regional artists, a public open house and modular synth show and tell, and more.
