From Bennett Williamson of Double Happiness
Hello my nimble-fingered friends-
I have a vision, and I need you to help me realize it!
I am organizing a small yet extremely epic live guitar shredding competition called SHRED MASTERS that will take place next month on March 12th and 13th as part of MIXER: OLYMPIAD at Eyebeam.
I NEED YOU TO REPRESENT A FICTITIOUS COUNTRY WHILE SHREDDING AS FAST AS POSSIBLE IN A HEAD-TO-HEAD BATTLE OF GUITAR MASTERY WHILE RIDING 20 FEET INTO THE AIR ON TOP OF A SCISSOR LIFT THAT IS SPEWING SMOKE AND EMBLAZONED WITH A GIANT YING-YANG SYMBOL, IN FRONT OF A CROWD OF HUNDREDS!!!!
THE ONLY WAY THIS TO BE AS AWESOME AND EPIC AS IT CAN BE IS IF YOU JOIN ME!
~ UNLEASH YOUR GUITAR (OR BASS) CHOPS!
~ TAKE IT OUT OF YOUR BEDROOM, AND ONTO A LIFT! (Did I mention the smoke machines? See attached concept sketch.)
Here's the basic info about the event:
Eyebeam is an Art & Technology center, and "MIXER is Eyebeam's quarterly event series dedicated to showcasing leading artists in the fields of live audiovisual performance, interactive and participatory art."
The MIXER parties are super fun and always come through with two nights of great participatory art, performances, and DJs. Here's a good demo reel primer for the unfamiliar: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y9215qZj8cQ
The theme of this MIXER is THE OLYMPICS.
If this sounds awesome to you,
THESE ARE THE REQUIREMENTS:
1. Must be available to perform at Eyebeam from 9pm-12am on Friday March 12th and/or Saturday March 13th.
2. Must be available for a practice in the evening of the preceding week (Monday March 8 - Thurs 11th).
3. Must be able to provide own guitar.
WHAT YOU WILL GET IN RETURN:
1. Winners will receive a sweet medal and GLORY!!!!!!!
2. Free entry to MIXER for you +1 guest
3. Free pizza and free drink!
4. THE RIDE OF A LIFETIME
If you're interested and you're ready to shred, please reply! AND FORWARD WIDELY TO ALL SHREDDERS!
