!!! note early start time !!!!

Bonnie Jones & Suzanne Thorpe have been collaborating musically and as co-founders of the electronic arts organization TECHNE since 2010. TECHNE teaches workshops combining sound, technology and musical improvisation. Our programs empower young women, increase their involvement in technology, and inspire them to engage in creative and innovative music practices. For the past 3 years TECHNE has gone on tour teaching contact mic buiding workshops to young women at GIrls Rock camps across the US. This summer we're touring Southern California and Texas. As part of the workshops, we like to present a local concert of electronic music to offer context and examples of female professionals working in the field. Tonight's program features a duet by Bonnie Jones & Suzanne Thorpe and a solo by local artist Carmina Escobar.
