Summer Happenings

Greetings Collectiv fans! It’s been far too long since we’ve had a fireside chat. And now that the summer heat is upon us in full force, let’s all slather on some sunscreen and find a good spot under the Astral Fire where this can take place. Get comfy…

I think it’s safe to say that as far as kicking off the season in style goes, we’ve done a pretty good job.

June brought us to Chud Fusk’s Hangrr 18 performance space in Hudson, NY for a night of experimental/noise/drone.

We were thrilled to feature Ben Surman this time around, in his debut performance with the Coterminous Collectiv under the moniker, “Mutant Starcamel”. And a big thanks again to TJ Spurge and Chud Fusk for organizing this and bringing our presence to Hudson, NY!

Early July brought us to the BSP Lounge once again for our monthly residency at The Revue! This time we featured four diverse beat-oriented acts, each with their own unique influences and set of tools.

This was a great chance to see rhythmic (and dare I say, at times, danceable?) electronic music presented in a unique and artistic way. AND, if you missed the show, you’re in luck, because TJ has it all on YouTube!

Stay tuned for more soon. Early September will bring us an Industrial night at BSP, The Cubes in New Paltz, and we hope to also be able to start doing some community outreach via knowledge-sharing/workshops and youth mentoring.
