MEME Home Manifesto Gatherings Performances CD-Rs

M.E.M.E. Gatherings:

June 20, 1998

This meeting of M.E.M.E. consisted of four members: Michael Firman, André Stordeur, Grant Richter, and Darwin Grosse. We convened in Milwaukee Wisconsin (on 6/20/98) for a Solstice M.E.M.E. Gathering. One of the highlights included the viewing of a video tape document of the original M.E.M.E. (consisting of Grant Richter, Dean Ireland, and Richard Franecki) giving a public performance (done for a Milwaukee public access TV station) sometime in 1990. As usual we spent time talking about compositions, compositional techniques, improvisational electronic music, equipment, recording, etc. During this gathering we committed three improvisational realizations to tape.
