A friend and electronic producer who performs as MssngMrblz has been organizing a series of shows called Prototype to showcase local electronic artists playing original material. I made my second appearance at the most recent show, Prototype 5, held at The Rockhouse in St. John’s on February 15. Not only was it a larger venue this time around, but the lights and sound were spectacular to behold. Flat screens, man! I opened the night with some harder-hitting tunes I’d been working on this month (being RPM Challenge season…more to come), and sporting another fun animal mask. The laid-back giraffe. I tried a rushed Mixlr broadcast, and was pleased with the enthusiasm I got for my set offstage. The rest of the evening was stellar, especially when I was able to snap some of the action using my new Fuji X-A1. Awesome performances by all, and a vibrant, excited crowd on the floor.
It was great to see and hear local music-makers step it up and show off their best works. Events like this are a welcome addition to the growing electronic music scene in St. John’s, and here’s to continued successes. Check out mssngmrblz.com for more (the gallery has some great pics), and I’ve got mine up for view here. Now back to polishing some of those new tracks for this month’s album. Ciao!
