Ge Wang and Rebecca Fiebrink ChucK Programming Language workshop is a place where artists and musicians meet, collaborate, support each other, sell CDs, and nurture their audiences. The community exists to create its own critical mass; to enable its members to develop music on their own terms. Electro-music is new music; still undefined; happening all over our planet. Electro-music is the natural result of techno/social trends: the availability of low-cost powerful electronic music technology, and the communication revolution enabled by the internet. Electro-music is not defined by a particular style or sound, but by its primary motivation being the joy of creation, and the love of electronic sounds. It can be slow and spacey, or fast and rhythmic; it crosses many genres.

The Cheltenham Art Center is an ideal facility for a multi-day event like this. It is a beautiful building with a relaxed and informal ambience, located in a secluded wooded section of Philadelphia. We’ll have two excellent concert venues and additional rooms for our activities during the full three days. The Art Center is accessible by public transportation (bus and train) from central Philadelphia.

Philadelphia is a great historic American city with a rich cultural heritage and a very active electro-music scene. Philly has an excellent international airport and abundant accommodations. It is a wonderful cultural/tourist destination in its own right, and is situated between two others, New York City, and the Baltimore – Washington, DC area. Many people will want to combine electro-music 2007 with a tour of the eastern United States.

electro-music 2007 will build on the success of the previous electro-music events in 2005 and 2006. The participants at those events felt it was a ground-breaking and inspirational experience.Many of the artists who were at the earlier events are returning this year, and there are also some interesting and talented newcomers.
