HEARding Cats Collective is excited to present International Electromatics, a improvising duo based in Baltimore, MD that performs on modular synthesizers. Featuring veteran syntheists Dave Vosh and Frank Vanaman, every performance is uniquely different from the last. International Electromatics are previous performers on the Sonic Circuits Festival, as well as at the (now defunct) Hexagon space, and more recently at the National Electronics Museum in Linthicum, MD.

Dave Vosh, born in Washington, DC, has been experimenting with electronic music since the 1970s and live performance since 2005 in various solo, duo and trio projects involving modular synthesizers and other devices. He performs regularly in DC and Baltimore. HEARding Cats presented Vosh at Floating Labs in 2010.

Also born in Washington, DC and now residing in the Baltimore area, Frank Vanaman relies on an appreciation for popular music and jazz of the 1920s-1930s to inform his abstract sonic work.

HEARding Cats Collective audiences may be interested in an upcoming screening of new work by frequent HCC contributor, Van McElwee – one of St. Louis’ preeminent video artists. See below for details!
