The latest issue of Wired is dubbed ‘The Music Issue’ and contains several good articles on the electronic scene.  The most intriguing article to me is titled ‘Songs In The Key Of F12’.  The article talks about Sunday nights at Open Air in NYC where Share (a laptop electronica enthusiast group) gathers for a ‘swap meet’ of ideas, gadgets, loops, software, etc.    If anyone knows of anything like this in the Chicago area, please LET ME KNOW!  Just drop me an email at dreamdaze@dreamdaze.org.  If I can’t find anything, I might just organize a similar gathering myself, since I know there’s a lot of laptop musicians in the area…
