New Forms Festival recap: The Stranger

“The Vancouver-based New Forms Media Society has been putting on an annual festival of experimental music and new media art for most of the last 20 years. A kindred spirit to Seattle’s Decibel (RIP), which once anchored September in the Pacific Northwest as an annual pilgrimage month for worldwide fans of the experimental electronics, New Forms is now the flagbearer for the Northwest’s urban avant-garde. Simply put, it provides the most exciting programming within a day’s overland journey of Seattle for those seeking a heady mixture of modular synthesizers, immersive sound art installations, raucous DJ sets pushing the boundaries of global club culture, daring live visual projections, soothing ambient soundscapes, and punk-infused performance art. EDM, psytrance, and playawear need to apply.”
