Mutant Mondays expose experimental music

Edmonton electroacoustic artist Shawn Pinchbeck is slated to be the first headliner in what is anticipated will be a weekly series of experimental shows at Wunderbar Hofbrauhaus (8120 101 Street).

Pinchbeck, with special guests Zebra Pulse,  plays Wunderbar Monday, March 7 in the series, currently operating under the working title Mutant Mondays. Experimental clarinetist Don Ross plays March 14, with percussionist Miguel Ferrer headlining at the venue March 21.

“I’ll be improvising live video and sound by using software that I made myself,” said Pinchbeck about his forthcoming show. “I just take my raw audio and video clips and start messing with them.”

The Pinchbeck engagement will take place roughly a month before the artist leaves for a lengthy tenure in Estonia, where he is better known as an instructor and performer.  Pinchbeck, who holds a Masters of Music, Composition degree from the University of Birmingham in England, has also performed extensively in Europe, including a number of festivals in England, Finland, Poland, Spain and Switzerland.

Additional acts to be confirmed for the remainder of March will be announced on Wunderbar’s facebook page,
