M.E.M.E. Gatherings

March 21, 1998

This meeting of M.E.M.E. consisted of five members: Michael Firman, Darwin Grosse, André Stordeur, John Papiewski, and Grant Richter. This time we convened in Naperville Illinois (on 3/21/98 for an Equinox celebration). This gathering was devoted mostly to group improvisation and we accomplished three extensive electronic conversations. We also documented this meeting by leaving a tape running throughout most of the interactions. Darwin graciously manned the mixing board and tape deck. Grant brought along some of his Wiard module prototypes including a completed Waveform City wave-table synthesis module (finished beautifully in blue with the trademark Celtic design adorning the front panel).
