WCMF (Windsor Canadian Music Festival) is coming! You showing up?

The Windsor Canadian Music Festival is unleashing itself in many locations from now until February 6th.

As described by the WCMF website: 

"The 2010 Windsor Canadian Music Festival looks at music and media, bringing composers, musician and video artists to create gesamtkunstwerk--comprehensive, all-embracing work of art."


Here's the schedule. Plain and simple. This is some unique stuff on display, within and outside of Phog Lounge, and I think it's going to imprint some new ideas to the people who decide to support this great event.

* Free Event       ++ $5 cover at Phog.
† Adults/ Seniors $20; Students (with ID) $10 available at the Chrysler Theatre Box Office. Call (519) 252-6579 to order by phone. Tickets available at the door.

According to those on the inside of this festival, the show on Thursday at the Armories is going to be unreal. Virgil Moorefield is doing Five Ideas About the Relation of Sight and Sound. This guy has worked with Bill Laswell, Elliot Sharp, Damage, and the Swans.

And the show on Friday with the Windsor Symphony Orchestra, video artists will be mixing live while the orchestra plays. According to Shelley Sharpe, "At least one of the pieces has the orchestra split into sections that will be placed in different areas around the Armouries."

Can you imagine a symphony playing AROUND you while video art is being displayed?
INSANE.
Take another look at this schedule, and try to make it to some of these events.
All events are marked as to whether they are free, or if a cover charge is applicable.

I can't wait...the surround sound and video with the WSO at the Armouries is going to be amazing to behold....I am particularly looking forward to Jordon Nobles "Aurora", a musical/visual interpretation of the Aurora Borealis...oh yeah and there's BAR SERVICE to boot!
