Loop the Loop 

Wednesday, Feb 25 2009
Artists and scientists should be better friends. These natural enemies have so much to teach one another! Because when they do get together, stuff like this happens: Magnetic Movie. Filmmaking group Semiconductor (scientific name, there, artists) presents a four-minute long looping film about magnets, set at the NASA Space Sciences Laboratory housed at U.C. Berkeley. But it's not your boring BS academic production, it's a gorgeous, colorful, hyperactive, poetic investigation into the invisible force fields of the Earth, the Sun, and Mars.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
