This year's Art's Birthday celebration features a diverse group of performers that explore a range of electronic and experimental music making approaches. From Blipvert's frenetic beat/glitch/noise and jumping up and down a lot, to Raylene Campbells dreamy layered drone compositions. It promises to be a great night of listening, creating and enjoyment!

This show features the electronic and experimental sounds of Blipvert, K. Burwash, Raylene Campbell, D.N.E., and Wayne DeFehr.

Art's Birthday originated in 1963 when French surreal artist Robert Filliou declared that art didn't exist until a million years ago when someone dropped a dry sponge into a pail of water. Choosing his own birthday of Jan. 17 to celebrate the event, Filliou proposed a public holiday, which has since been adopted by arts organizations and collectives in more than 20 nations worldwide.
