This Saturday, May 29th, 2021 at 8pm ET, THE PiNG LiVE iN SPACE 10
presents a free DRoNE DAY Concert on Twitch.TV featuring:
dreamSTATE, JP King, Shimmer Crush, Scott LePore, URM+Sylken,
Not Your Average Worker Bees and Weep, O' Mine Eyes

. Electronic ambient artists dreamSTATE (Scott M2+Jamie Todd)
have devotedly performed at every Drone Day since it was created
in 2014. Their album "DRoNE DAY" was recorded at that first show.
This year, they'll present drones oozing from modular synth and
virtual electronics, while safely distanced in the verdant greenspace
of Jamie's back yard. https://www.dreamSTATE.to

. JP King is an artist-designer-educator with a special interest in
sound synthesis, system design, and visual communication. He
currently teaches within the Daniels Faculty of Architecture,
Landscape, and Design at U of T, with a focus on discard culture,
the environment, printmaking, and publishing. In 2016, the Canada
Council for the Arts nominated King for a Governor General's
Innovation Award based on his research about how waste shapes
the world alongside his pioneering experiments with Risograph
printing. He makes experimental music as an extension of his
artistic practice under his own name.  http://www.jpking.ca
and Instagram@jpk.ing

. Shimmer Crush produces starkly beautiful electronic music in an
organic and shifting process currently defined by “enormous, edgy,
deep, hypnotic sounds" (Melissa Devine https://melissadevine.ca/).
Pulsing rhythms thread through dreamy soundscapes that merge in
layers of aural textures following a path often unknown but always
informed by the world around us. Shaped by this experience,
then further explored through live performances, a rich sonic
palette has emerged from which new and dynamic compositions
have evolved. These elements come together to form the basis
for the unique Shimmer Crush sound.

. Scott Lepore is an electro-acoustic musician and composer in Toronto.
He has been exploring the intersection between improvisational
performance and technology for 40 years. He is an active member of
various artistic communities including the Music Experience Movement
and Toronto's Frequency Freaks monthly modular meetups.

. Not Your Average Worker Bees is David Sutherland and Intrepita
(Paul Stillwell). Both are members of the CEE (Canadian Electronic
Ensemble) with strong backgrounds in live electronic music
improvisation. Their focus is live performances in Toronto
and live broadcast performances via YouTube.

. Weep, O' Mine Eyes (Michael Weicker) - Calgary. While PiNG
audiences will best remember Michael's performances in Toronto
from his Eigenharp playing - over the years (since 1984) he has
also created his music with analog synthesizers, drum machines,
eastern hand drums & found objects such as metal canisters
and power tools.  http://www.weepomineeyes.com

. Sylken+URM (Eric Hopper+Jamie Todd) - the PiNG's spaced-out
synthetic house band will be dropping improvised interludes into
the stream live from the secret suburban subterranean studio.
