Next week, Wilson and I venture to the great Kingdom of Steel (known formally as Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania) to cover for Sick Chirpse the VIA MUSIC & NEW MEDIA FESTIVAL. This year’s VIA festival will feature performances from BATTLES, FOUR TET, ZOMBI, BRENMAR, WALLS, as well as workshops with REWIRE: HACK LAB, NOISE CRAFTS, and the THE WARHOL MUSEUM, plus much much more.
For this Foreign Correspondence Live piece, Wilson and I decided to approach our Chirpse coverage of the VIA Festival in a manner as innovative as the festival itself. We will have a daily written narrative of our experience at VIA 2011, as well as photographs and videos (thanks to Will’s Canon 5D) documenting the experience.
Check out the full line-up of all of the artists and events here and be sure to check out the VIA site and Facebook Page for more information regarding the festival. You can purchase tickets here. More to come in a week’s time.
