Since 1998 New West Electronic Arts and Music Organization (NWEAMO) has been presenting highly eclectic concerts that blend DJ beats with invented instruments and electronic music from the far reaches of concept and aesthetics. High and low, street and laboratory; anything and everything converges, by design, at a NWEAMO concert. On Oct. 17 & 18 the festival makes its Miami debut, with concerts at FIU, Harold Golen Gallery and PS 14, featuring composers from around the globe and Miami’s best and brightest.
The 2008 Festival NWEAMO aims to wrestle “Innuendo Intended,” the contemporary musical views on aesthetics, gender issues, politics, norms, history, rituals, taboos, propaganda, stereotypes, spirituality and physiology of this emotional and physical dance that preoccupies most of us for so much of our lives.
At this gallery concert the artists who will sensually tackle art include the British cabaret musician Eleanor Williams, Miami-based composer Kristine H. Burns and the FIU Laptop & Electronic Arts (FLEA) Ensemble, New York-based laptop musician Sam Pluta, Californian Tim Poulen and the Miami own Gustavo Matamoros. Computerized cabaret, silky laptops, interactive pop-sickles, musical saw and saxophone will all jungle to create a seductive atmosphere.
