Airports are a cultural black hole. You are scanned, poked and prodded by TSA, then left to bad coffee, shopping, and boredom. As a result everyone escapes to the virtual via smartphone and/or their computer... You have an audience.

I Love Presets (w/ Duplicates)
Wednesday, 03/09/2011 8PM!
The Nightingale Theater, 1084 N. Milwaukee Ave., Chicago, IL [map]
After battling a renegade tribe of yetis hell-bent on stealing I Love Presets' gear during Chicago's Snowpocalypse 2011, Rob Ray, Jon Satrom and Jason Soliday are back at the Nightingale for an evening of realtime audio/video.
Duplicates, a collaboration between: Joseph Kramer and Ryan Dunn will kick off the evening at 8:00 p.m.
------------
I Love Presets (Rob Ray, Jason Soliday, and Jon Satrom) creates websites, videos and live multimedia performances that simultaneously exalt and heckle the contemporary digital lifestyle.
I Love Presets—equipped with their woodchipper of bizarre shareware, custom video games, circuit bent electronics, handcrafted synthesizers, and modern audio software— warp, agitate, mulch and re-digest 909 kick drum hits, computer error messages, Internet pop-up ads and screen capture videos into a quivering and spastic audio-visual cacophony.
The band’s stuttering, shrieking, hardcore explorations of computer history, Internet humor, digital boosterism and social media performance crack open and spelunk a technological present that lurches between enhanced and encumbered, contemporary and obsolescent, and utopic and dystopic.

Groundhog's Day with I Love Presets!


Dates:
Wed Feb 02, 2011 20:00 - Wed Feb 02, 2011

Location:
Chicago, Illinois
United States of America

recent study found that Groundhogs successfully predict the future only 37% of the time.
At 8PM on February 2, 2011, at the Nightingale Theater, the Chicago
realtime audio/video group I Love Presets will offer a much more accurate prediction of the impending future. Through the manipulation of home-brew gear, glitch-ware, and mangled samples, I Love Presets will forecast more than just weather. Shadow or no-shadow, Rob RayJon Satrom, and Jason Soliday will hack the dark-fiber of the future, crack the crystal ball, and unleash a fury of realtime audio/video prognostication.
Duplicates, a collaboration between: Joseph Kramer and Ryan Dunn will kick off the evening at 8PM.
