Cybersonica Social (formerly known as Çonic Social) relaunches after a  
summer break and at a new venue - The Flea-Pit <http://thefleapit.com>  
- a cafe-bar on Columbia Rd right next to the park and a place where  
art and socialising go hand in hand... ?A perfect pit-stop? says  
Wallpaper Magazine 2006 (London's Best New Destinations).

Cybersonica Social creates a slice of Cybersonica for a few brief but  
enjoyable hours once a month in the friendly, vibey surroundings of  
the The Flea-Pit - and takes a new approach - themes. Each month  
investigates a different strand of work associated with Cybersonica  
with line-ups to suit. We kick off with an exploration into 3D sound  
and visuals - installing the Illustrious 3D-AudioScape surround system  
to deliver 'ultra real' three dimensional audio.

'In 3 Dimensions' features a set of 3D music by Martyn Ware of  
Illustrious - 80s pop icon and co-founder of The Human League and  
Heaven 17 - with live visuals by Fat Butcher; a screening of the  
D-Fuse & Illustrious 2007 FPS?A LONDON CONVERSATION - a commission for  
the opening of the new BFI building; a range of work from squidsoup  
including Driftnet - a spatialised musical environment navigated by  
bird-like flight; Daniel Jones' AtomSwarm - a three dimensional sonic  
ecosystem; and screenings of works from The Sancho Plan, Tal Rosner  
and the D-Fuse 'VJ Culture' book DVD. More details on the 10th October  
line-up and a selection of live mixes from past events can be found at  
the Cybersonica Social website <http://social.cybersonica.org>.

With live music and audiovisual performances, screenings of short  
music films and promos, DJ and VJ sets, playful interactive  
audiovisual artworks and demonstrations of creative work and  
techniques from established names and emerging talent Cybersonica  
Social is our ?hang-out? for progressive electronic music makers,  
audiovisualisers, digital artists and fans looking for somewhere to  
meet like-minded people, share ideas and enjoy fresh, vibrant music  
and performance.

This will be the fifth in a regular monthly night hosted by  
Cybersonica - London?s annual celebration of music, sound, art and  
technology. Future themes include November's 'The Sound Of Games' a  
tie in with the London Games Fringe and December's not too unexpected  
?Xmas Party'.

If you make your own music or audiovisual work with interesting  
technology, are keen to play your music live (as opposed to just  
pressing play in Ableton Live) and would like to perform at  
Cybersonica Social then we'd like to hear from you. Contact us at  
social at cybersonica.org with some personal info and links to your  
music, videos and images and we'll check it out and get back to you.  
If you're interested in helping us to document these events or  
generally want to get involved then get in touch too.
