Ingenuity Fest 2011 – Cleveland, Ohio

By September 22, 2011 June 21st, 2015 Uncategorized

Ingenuity Fest is Cleveland’s yearly festival showcasing art (mostly music) and technology. Patternbased and Akron’s Center for Audio and Visual Experimentation (CAVE, run by Rubber City Noise) teamed up to create a space at the festival. We had the weekend filled with electronic and experimental artists, hand-built walls of art and mobile electronic busking units powered by car batteries. Some of my favorite acts to bless our stage over the weekend were _node, Ondelette and Giant Claw. Two projects I am involved in, Low in the Sky and Bellows both put on their best shows to date. In general, it was a very positive event and even though we had a shoestring budget, our space and artists greatly added to the festival. Special thanks to Pat McNulty on the sound boards, all the artists, experimedia for the initial hookup and everyone who manned the merch table all weekend. If you missed it, Frank J Lanza’s Flickr contains some great photos of the festival. Up next on the festival front for Patternbased is the VIA festival in Pittsburgh, PA where Kendra Minadeo and I will be doing handmade film workshops and VJ’ing as Bellows for Tim Sweeny.
