On Saturday, January 19th 2013, Sequential Circus returns for the twelfth iteration. Bring your dancing shoes for Vancouver’s premiere live electronic performance showcase!
Sequential Circus is an ongoing music event series featuring an ever-changing lineup of live performance (live-pa) electronic music acts, both local and imported talent, with a focus on cutting edge sound and visual technologies.
Do not confuse this with a DJ event – the dancefloor will be jumping, but all the music at Sequential Circus is composed and performed live by the original artists; it’s more of an electronic music concert series than a clubnight.

TICKETS: $20, available at the door only, arrive early to avoid disappointment
Doors at 10:00pm, first performance begins at 10:30pm sharp!
MUSICAL PERFORMANCE LINEUP: (alphabetical order)
Computer Controlled is the main project of Seattle artist Larry Kleinke. Computer Controlled’s base (or is that bass?) sound is heavily influenced by the oldschool Midwest Acid sound of DJ ESP Woody McBride and DJ Hyperactive, as well as labels like Communique’, Drop Bass Network, Direct Drive, Industrial Strength, Harthouse, Contact, TRAX, and the early Minimal stylings of dbx, Todd Sines and Hyperactive. His live Acid PAs have garnered praises from all who have witnessed them. Though some software is used, it is mostly a hardware based Live PA.

Having been making electronic music for over 15 years, Entorwellian’s eccentric and puzzling IDM-style ranges from lush and serene to wild and fantastical. With his roots in music trackers, inventing new instruments, software programming and tape editing, Entorwellian dedicates himself towards finding new ways of bridging the gap between unrestrained imagination and technical limitations. When Entorwellian is not composing, he is collecting field recordings and audio samples from his travels and outdoor adventures.
