minicine? welcomes back to Shreveport, sound artist Simon Whetham, who recently performed at the MSPS New Music Festival 2011. Whetham (Bristol, UK), is in the country collecting field recordings as part of his ongoing active crossover project . His performance will include field recordings from the locations of the original performances of the project as well as field recordings collected from the various locations he is visiting along his travel.

((((( James Eck Rippie (New Orleans) works primarily with turntables, with a focus on creating abstract sound from classical music recordings utilizing altered needles, turntable feedback, effect pedals, damaged records, etc. In decomposing the original sound source, Rippie’s intentions are to understand the transcending possibilities of sound and test the capabilities of the turntable as an instrument. )))))

Peter Fetterman (Shreveport) all elusive and secretive, will meditate on the meaning of life through sound waves….
