OXM #3 - Live Music Showcase
Date:Thu, Oct 14th, 2021
Time:7:00 pm to 00:00:01
Flock of Arts Flocka Flocka Arts and Wounded Humans with Lyle Hopkins.
The third event in the OXM Series will be held at Affinity Hall (1405 St. Paul St. #201, Kelowna) and streamed live online on Thursday, October 14th at 7 pm PDT (Vancouver).
Emerging out of the apple fields atop Summerland’s clay banks, Flock of Arts Flocka Flocka Arts is the modular synthesizer/theremin due of Devon Scott-Leslie and Katie Sardinha.
Devon was drawn to synthesizers while playing with shoe-gazy guitar pedal feedback loops. He played around with digital synths and VSTs until discovering modular synthesizers. He soon learned you could build the things yourself, and probably spends as much time tinkering with circuits as he does playing the damn thing.
Katie first encountered the theremin at the Exploratorium in San Francisco. She took up the instrument soon after, playing late into the night in her attempt to ward off insomnia during an intense phase of writing a dissertation in Linguistics.
Flock of Arts Flocka Flocka Arts is an experimental attempt to reconcile the very different, and often non-linear, musical constraints of modular synthesizers, theremins, and what have you.

Katie can be contacted through her website, www.kaotiva.ca
