**DRAGON**(3 hour set!!)-LIVE-D-A-R-K Records, TOUCH Samadhi – Pensacola, Florida
Learning to dj in 1997, David aka ‘Dragon’ made the trek from progressive trance to the realms of psytrance by 2001, and started composing his own music around 2004. Dragon’s musical productions include a handful of singles as well as two full-length albums; “in.formation” released in January of 2009 and “spirals of time” released in March of 2011. The ‘dragon’ project is intended to contribute heavy and innovative tunes to be played on high quality sound systems around the world. His music tends to explore the darker realms of trance with ethereal soundscapes to create a unique and unfamiliar experience for the listeners. One can always expect thick kicks tuned with traditional staccato basslines to provide the foundation for glitched up percussion, and powerful leads with a variety of textures in every composition.
**THE PAKA PAKA LIGHTSHOW**Live Visual Performance – Madison, Wi
“Near the turn of the last century, video manipulation and montage in real time became possible on a desktop computer, opening up a new world of expression. PakaPaka Lightshow was founded by Jerome Fortier, Reuben Fortier, and Dale Kaminski, a trio of artists devoted to exploring this new media. Jerome and Dale saw that their decades of experience in creating analog psychedelic lightshows could be leveraged with digital computers rather than overhead, aldis, slide, and 16mm projectors. PakaPaka Lightshow congealed organically through contemplation on how to provide visuals for a “historical cabaret” theatrical piece about the culture and happenings of 1968. This unique event led to the opening of many strange and exciting paths and PakaPaka continues to wander them. With every performance, PakaPaka provides a new stream of optical amusements, empathically bonded to the vibration of the moment.”
