AutumnLEAF 2016 :: October 7 and 8


AutumnLEAF is a FREE event scheduled for October 7-8, 2016 that will feature live experimental and audiovisual music performances from an international cast of players.
Friday night’s performances have been curated to showcase various approaches to using electronic media in a live performative context. Combining narrative with abstraction, synthesis with sampling, collecting with fabricating, each of the invited artists creates a hybrid universe of sound, image, story and perception. Join us for an evening of challenging and rewarding experiences.
On Saturday morning join us for talks by each of the artists to gain insight into their creative process, the tools and technologies they employ, and what it means to practice this kind of art in today’s culture. Following the talks we will be screening a selection of short films examining the history of various strains of electronic and visual musics, as well as showcasing some contemporary artists and approaches.

Friday Performances 6-10pm
Saturday Talks/Films 10am-3pm

“Based on feedback from the almost 200-person audience for the first LEAF we held in April, it became immediately clear that people were open to new and experimental forms of sonic and visual hybrid arts” said LEAF curator, David Fodel. “Lafayette is home to a growing community of creative and informed people that want high quality music and art. I think the small-town charm is also attracting people from Denver and the metro area as well. We continue to curate a program that rivals bigger festivals and we’re keeping it free to encourage folks to take a chance on something new and different”

LEAF is sponsored by Arts Lafayette, a 501c(3) organization, and presented by The Colorado Music Festival & Center for Musical Arts.
