Cycling 74 Joins Transmission Festival as Sponsor(July 19, 2001)
"We're pleased to be a sponsor of the Transmissions Festival," said David Zicarelli, programmer/president of Cycling '74. "In addition to developing software for artists and musicians, we're looking for ways to support artists who support us by using our tools. We've been pleased to see people such as the Transmissions crew mounting festivals that support work we feel is important. We're happy to be involved in supporting the festival in some small way."
Keenan McDonald, founder/director of the Transmissions Festival, noted, "Our hopes for the festival are grounded in a desire to facilitate the energies of a continuously growing and self-organizing community of artists, and the opportunity to collaborate with Cycling '74 is something about which we're very excited."
In addition to providing financial and logistical support, Cycling '74 will collaborate with Transmissions on a series of "Live at transoo4" releases on c74, a new label which features the work of artists who use Cycling '74's software to make extraordinary music.
The Transmissions Festival began in 1998 in Chapel Hill, NC, but has since relocated to Chicago, IL. The festival has widened its scope and is continually expanding through organic engagement between its organizers, participants and supporters. Transmissions is focused upon the intersections of art, technology and culture, and manifests itself through the confluence of those energies; the festival hopes to cultivate interaction and further extend the spheres of influence for experimental digital art.
