Today I’m writing about yet another reason that we love Fluxible here at Zeitspace.
Earlier this year, Zeitspace sponsored the Open Ears Festival of Music and Sound, for reasons that I wrote about when announcing our sponsorship. In short, it’s a great music festival that does innovative programming.
On Wednesday this week, Fluxible is presenting a concert at Open Sesame in downtown Kitchener. The preformers are Ben Grossman (hurdy gurdy) and Matt Brubeck (cello) in a duet performance, as well as JoJo Worthington (ukulele/voice/electronics). Ben and Matt both played at Fluxible Conference in 2016. In fact, Ben is also doing a presentation at this year’s Fluxible Conference on the user experience of playing instruments. JoJo is new to Fluxible, and its great that she’s playing this concert.
Now here’s the connection back to my earlier mention of Zeitspace sponsoring Open Ears.
Fluxible is presenting the concert as a fundraiser for the Open Ears Festival of Music and Sound. All proceeds from ticket sales (except for Eventbrite fees and HST) will go to Open Ears. And the concert is a “pay what you can” model, as Fluxible didn’t want ability to pay to exclude anyone from hearing this wonderful music.
So check it out, maybe even buy a ticket, and come here some great music at a cool venue.
