Once again… big thanks to all who entertained us at Çonic Social v0.2 and to everyone who who came along. Despite a slightly fraught start (cheers to everyone who rolled up their sleeves and pitched in early on) the night was as varied and entertaining as expected. Boep managed to just about squeeze into the DJ booth and still stretch the venue sound system with their improvised loop-based live set, DJ Cylob showed off his Cylob Music System (there’s an mp3 of his software demo below) and Ben Osborne grooved us out with some progressive disco – albeit a bit too late in the evening for most (sorry Ben!).
And just to make it clear… these mp3s are recordings of the live sets and DJ mixes from the night made available with the permission of the performers – topped and tailed, normalised and and mildly processed but otherwise undedited and untreated. Essentially you’re hearing what you would in the venue.
Check back soon to see some photos and watch a short video from the night…

The next Çonic Social is the second 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.
For those of you interested in the technology, methodology and production behind the music then starting at 7.30pm we have a demonstration by DJ Cylob of some of the music software he’s been working on – the Cylob Music System written in the Supercollider language which includes his use of a monome 128 adaptable, minimalist interface (watch the YouTube video below). A real treat – not to be missed.
With style-shifting electronic music from DJ Cylob, serious beats from Ben Osborne, break-steppin trunk-funk from Boep and squidgy electronica from DJ Çonic this has to be the ‘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.
