Body Electric Festival intro:

"Alright, this show is an overview of Vancouver's third annual Electronic Arts Festival entitled Body Electric. This took place on May 14 to 18, `97 in Vancouver, B.C. (supernatural British Columbia), Canada, and the musical performances you are about to hear were presented in the Lux Hall of the Western Front."

Initiale(s) intro:

"For its North American premiere, the Quatuor Hêlios, from France, presented new works for computer assisted percussion. Can you say that five times fast: Quatuor Hêlios.

"Two works using the spectacular Buchla's Lightning rods, gestural MIDI controllers, were commissioned for their North American premiere.

"Le Quan Ninh 's Initiale(s), uses samples of old Vietnamese language and explores the instrumental detours (inherent to rejuvenescence) between instruments and sonority.

Initiale(s)Le Quan Nihn

Sub Version intro:

"Considered to be a dangerous destabilizer of massive power structures, Jun Oenuki, a young artist from Japan, wires up store bought components into potent art bombs.

"His wake up call has moved other culture-jammers to action.

"Representing the new political pop culture, Sub Version was Jun Oenoki's North American debut. Jun Oenoki: Sub.Version"

Virtual Iyesa outro:

"Again, Quatuor Hêlios performing Virtual Iyesa from composer and percussionist Andrew Schloss.

"Iyesa is a form of Afrocuban music, found only in the town of Matanzas, Cuba. The rhythms of Iyesa are the point of departure for a virtual performance on the lighting rods. Man, I'd like to see that!"
