DIY fundraisers Kickstarter have invaded Austin's art and music scenes, and its latest hostage is Church of the Friendly Ghost, which is proposing a three-day festival in June, entitled New Media Art & Sound Summit.
What are they looking for? Organizer Aaron Mace explains:
"Experimental music, video art, intermedia works, new music, progressive sound, bits, art pop, creative improvised music, graphic scores, alternate controllers, antler fancy, electronic expression, queerness, handmade devices, twee, fidget blip, doom construction, bayou skuzz, jazz, Wii core, glow core, neo fauxie, art damage, art dandyism, other, more, maximum. If you’re smiling by now you might want to submit a proposal to participate."
Deadline for submissions is May 14. Visit their Kickstarter site for more details on how you can help.
