September 27 - October 1
Newcastle, New South Wales

Electrofringe 2001 will once again bring together hundreds of
local and international media makers, audio-visual creators,
electronic musicians, gamers and just plain digital trouble
makers. Following on from the last three years, Electrofringe
2001 will focus on issues of copyright and intellectual property.

Electrofringe is the electronic media contingent of the larger
This Is Not Art festival <http://thisisnotart.org> which includes
Sound Summit, The National Young Writers Festival and The
National Student Media Conference.


Electrofringe has expanded this year to include several
international participants:

Mark Gunderson (USA). Founder of The Evolution Control
Committee and an experimental musician and arts organizer,
focusing on recycled/assemblage audio and arts and technologies.
The ECC is infamous for all sorts of pranks, including utilising
Napster for hilarious results.

Vicki Bennet from People Like Us (UK) blurs audio and video
to make a surrealistic and humorous blend of monotonous yet
strangely captivating brain durge.

Andy Cox (UK) is a founding member of Together We Can Defeat
Capitalism. An environmental engineer, he uses his skills to annoy
large corporations. He also perplexed many an art goer with his
fake Whitney Biennial website. At Electrofringe, he will relaunch
his Citybank site, currently down for legal reasons.

Scientifically Speaking with Irene Moon (USA) blurs the lines
between science, music and performance art.

Steev Hise (USA) is a cultural worker based in San Francisco
who chews up old media and spits out new art. He founded
Detritus.net, probably the most well known web source about
recycled culture.

Other international guests at This Is Not Art this year include
Hrvatski (USA), Mad Professor (UK), David Shea (Belgium),
Fat Cat Records (UK), Anticon (USA), The Wire magazine (UK),
DJ Mr King (UK), Jimi Chen, DJ TY and Vince Chung (Taiwan).

Australia's largest ever electronica and hip hop event.
