Modular Synthesizer Virtual Performance + Conversation 

with Christopher Sean Powell

Thursday, December 3 2020

7PM - 8PM



FREE and Open to the Public


Please join VCAM for an end of semester virtual music performance and conversation with Philadelphia electronic musician Christopher Sean Powell! The event will consist of a performance by Powell, followed by a breakdown and Q&A about making music with modular synthesizers. The event will conclude with a second performance by Powell. 


Chris Powell (aka Pow Pow) is a self-taught rhythm scholar, producer, and electronic music-maker living in Philadelphia, PA.  As a main contributor in the Philadelphia art and sound collective Need New Body, which fused improvisation with popular song structures, Powell began a career of international recording and performance, creating music at the nexus of art and entertainment. Since 1999, he has collaborated, recorded, and toured worldwide with a diverse spectrum of artists and musicians, including the Sun Ra Arkestra, Yoko Ono, and the Boredoms.  Powell’s work in the eclectic and high energy Philadelphia band Man Man has helped focus his talent as a leader in the live performance context. Powell’s body of work has most recently expanded to creating instruments for NYC/Philly based synthesizer company Critter & Guitari’s Organelle keyboard.
