UC Berkeley graduate student composer Mason Bates presents:

Electronica on Vinyl,
The Intelligent Dance Music Movement

Drawing from a variety of electronica subgenres borne on the dance-floor, IDM emerged in the mid-1990's as a more listener-oriented branch of electronica that shifted the listening environment to living rooms and underground lounges. Ever influential today, the most prominent in the IDM scene is the UK's Warp label, with artists such as Aphex Twin, Autechre, and Plaid. But equally important developments in IDM are also occurring Germany, Japan, and the US. This hour-and-a-half presentation on turntables will move from discussions of important IDM artists, to long spans of listening in a relaxed atmosphere at CNMAT.
