Çonic Social launches on Tuesday, 1st April, 7-11pm – the first in a regular monthly night at Bar Vinyl, Inverness Street, Camden NW1 hosted by Cybersonica – London’s annual festival of music, sound, art and technology.
Çonic Social creates a slice of Cybersonica for a few brief but enjoyable hours the first Tuesday of every month in the friendly, vibey surroundings of the oh-so-easy-to-get-to Bar Vinyl (just 300m from Camden tube). With DJ and VJ sets, live music and audiovisual performances, screenings of short music films and promos, playful interactive audiovisual artworks and demonstrations of music production techniques from established names and emerging talent we’d like it to become a regular ‘hang-out’ for progressive electronic music makers and fans looking for somewhere to meet like-minded people, share creative work and techniques and enjoy fresh, vibrant music and performance.
If you make your own music or audiovisual work with interesting technology, are keen to play your music live (as opposed to just pressing play in Ableton Live) and would like to perform at Çonic Social then we’d love to hear from you. Contact us – conicsocial [AT] cybersonica.org – with some personal info and links to your music, videos and images. We’ll check it out and get back to you.

“She plays lots of different styles but predominantly minimal groovy bass heavy electro, in a style, we think, comparable to Andrew Weatherall and Keith Tenniswood.” DJ MAG
Co-promoter of the art-inspired electro night ‘NERD’, London-based DJ, Shelley Parker has become a firm fixture on the UK & European underground electronic circuit – adeptly flicking between genres yet maintaining a brooding dark minimal edge underlying the mix. Working on her own studio productions, as well as developing her label Structure, she also forms part of the Ammunition radio team for Combat Recordings on Play FM, where she has explored a more experimental side to her sets.
Audio Aubergine is an online label serving electronic fruit+veg sonics. No artist on the roster accepts payment for their music which is licensed under a Creative Commons License and free for download. It can then be listened to in kitchens/public transport/sheds etc. At Çonic Social, DJ Audio Aubergine will be playing a selection of unreleased new tracks from purple fruit affiliates off his hard disk.
