Prairie Wires Modular (PWM) Modular Meet-up Set for June 14 & 15

"Brandon, Manitoba, Canada -- Hot off the heels of the successful 'Drone at the Global Market' event, Prairie Wires Modular (PWM) is set for it’s inaugural two-day Modular Meet-up. On Friday, June 14 and Saturday, June 15 PWM will celebrate experimental electronic music with a showcase of free performances and a public open-house that all focus on modular synthesizers.

What are modular synthesizers? A modular synthesizer is a highly customizable musical instrument that can be configured and connected in an infinite variety of ways, the sonic possibilities are only limited by imagination and creativity of the user. If you are curious about how they work and what they sound like? Come by the Art Gallery of Southwestern Manitoba (Town Centre) this Saturday for an up close and personal introduction to this fascinating instrument at the Prairie Wires Modular “Patch & Tell” Open House. This unique family friendly event will feature displays, demonstrations, and Q&A with some of Manitoba’s leading electronic musicians working with the Eurorack modular synthesizer format.

There are also three free performance events planned for this year’s meet-up. The opening concert at Chez Angela Bakery and CafĂ© on Friday June 14 at 6:30 p.m. will feature an electro-acoustic performance of Modular Synth and Trombone. Saturday’s program includes another free concert on the Fraser Sneath patio at 10:00 a.m. and finally “Modular on the Spot”, a free out door modular synthesizer “picnic” will take place at 4:30 p.m. in Stanley Park on Princess
(presented in conjunction with Brandon Pride).

Synthesists visiting Brandon for this event include Winnipeg ambient musicians Yoyu (Ali Khan) and Bondegi (Chris Harder) and modular duo Cactus Practice (Grant Partridge and Denys Gareau) also of Winnipeg. Prairie Wires Modular founder and Brandon-based electronic musician Moon Shape Noise (Brendon Ehinger) will also be performing. All the events are free of charge, open to the public and family friendly. Program and map information for can be found at"
