More on him:

Bring all of your aural/visual noise-making toys for the festive night to hop into the jam, &/or simply bring yourself to hang out, chat, exchange ideas/headaches/inspirations over drinks in a comfy atmosphere!! Show up early!! Stay late!!! is a multimedia jam session and forum for people interested in art and performance of any type. Participants are encouraged to show and exchange ideas freely by giving each other feedback, catalyzing and developing techniques and philosophies in collaborative performance, all in a non-judgmental environment. Share does not curate or impose an aesthetic. Mistakes and experiments are welcome!

We generally receive audio &/or visual participants - not necessarily digital. Laptops, analog &/or acoustic instruments (analog synths, acoustic string/horn/percussion/etc instruments), homemade gadgets, film/slides (if you'll bring a necessary projector), etc. are happily accommodated! Share loves all kinds of experiments with things including (but not limited to) various sensors, collaborative programming, soldering on-site (if you'll bring soldering equipment), making low-key toy instruments (circuit bent or not), contact microphones, live projections/reflection/refraction, etc!

Share takes place on Sundays!! (But double-check for the occasional change of plans)
Swing by anytime between 20:00-midnight.
FREE admission as always!!


Audio: our own PA system!
Share has its very own sound system, which offers more power and better range (bass!) than the system we've been borrowing for the last few years. Come by and check it out!

Video projectors: digital dual-HD projection system
Two 1080p projectors on a TripleHead2Go video splitter give you a 3840x1080 canvas wrapping around two sides of the beautiful white-walled room C101. Most modern laptops with mini-DVI output can plug straight into the dual-HD setup, or bring adapters and go VGA or HDMI directly to a single projector.
