Jan. 18, 2008
Vinology, 110 S. Main St.
Ann Arbor

COLOR ++ FORM is a new semi-regular residency featuring experimental electronic music and video in an Ann Arbor wine cellar. The night is a collaboration between Jeff Owens, the label manager at Ghostly International/Spectral Sound and co-founder of the weekly dance-lounge party Bloom, and Paris '68, a sonic art collective based in Detroit and Pittsburgh. The event will feature special guest artists mixing live music and videos, and DJ sets.

On Jan. 18, COLOR ++ FORM welcomes Chris McNamara, a member of Thinkbox, a loose collective of sound and video artists based in the U.S. and Canada. The group performed at the Detroit Electronic Music Festival in 2003 and at Mutek in Montreal in 2004. McNamara's sight and sound installations were part of the Shrinking Cities exhibit in Berlin and Detroit. In 2007, he delivered a lecture at Cranbrook and performed with Paris '68 at the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit (MOCAD) as part of that same exhibition. McNamara, who teaches at the University of Michigan's Screen Arts and Cultures Department, has directed a new film that will screen at the Rotterdam Film Festival later this winter.

The first version of COLOR ++ FORM is Jan. 18 in the wine cellar at Vinology, 110 S. Main St., Ann Arbor. The music and video program starts at 9 p.m. The event is free. There is a full cash bar at Vinology and food is also available.

Since this is my first post here on Burnlab, I thought I would direct readers to my websites, and Paris '68 for more information.

Most excellent! As an Ann Arbor local, myself and friends will be checking out this event. Always nice to have things happening in town.

Good to see Thinkbox continuing to be active. I knew Mark Laliberte back in the days when he was doing industrial-music 'zines (circa 90's)...
