Electronic Music Collective will play live at Youngstown

Electronic Music Collective (EMC) is proud to announce "Total Immersion 2," a surround sound concert showcasing members of the EMC live with a unique performance by String Station on June 13 at Youngstown Cultural Arts Center.

"Total Immersion 2" is an adventure into the new world of downtempo electronic and electro acoustic music by cutting edge Seattle artists performing live surround-sound music to striking triple-screen visuals.

Special guest String Station will present a futuristic new instrument that involves 40 strings, digital sound modeling technology and adventursome performance techniques. It will be played by its inventor, Jim Bartz.

EMC aims to support and work alongside the local community by providing a very unique surround-sound experience. Part of the proceeds of this event will be donated to MusiCares, which provides a safety net of critical assistance for music people in times of need.

EMC is also working in affiliation with The Body Bar Day Spa who will be providing chair massage during the performance and will be handing out $25 gift certificates to the first 20 people through the door.

The concert is also part of EMC's goal to educate the general public to the tools and techniques involved in the creation of such an event. Artists will therefore be introducing you to some of the behind-the-scenes technologies that go into creating, experiencing and understanding surround-sound and their individual crafts.
