WOAH WAVE: a new genre of Getting Your Sh*t Together! Hosted by Kara Tomé, founder of ArtSite Projects, GYST Radio broadcasts conversations with DIY artists, independent curators and arts organizations. A new addition to GYST, the WOAH Show highlights artists working with sound and moving images. A virtual space surveying technological innovation in the arts through conversations with purveyors of electronic arts and new media, the WOAH Show had it’s first half-hour on-air with the duo behind Experimental Half-Hour (EHH).

Broadcasting experimental music and performance art, Experimental Half-Hour is a show co-founded by Eva Aguila and Brock Fansler. Developed as a cable access program for experimental media and it’s makers, EHH is a platform connecting and servicing a diverse network of local and international cross-disciplinary artists. Showcasing an eclectic and extensive roster of musicians, performance artists, dancers, and comedians through televised episodes (seriously though… look at this list), EHH is in many ways a real-time archive documenting the elasticity of contemporary performing arts, audio and video culture. Broadcasting bi-weekly half-hour episodes on multiple cable access programs in Portland since 2010, EHH has reached the airwaves of NYC, St. Paul, and beyond— collaborating and exchanging content with nomadic new media organizations like NYC’s ESP TV and LA monthly animator and video artist hang-out, Ghosting.
Officially relocating to Los Angeles in late 2013, EHH is in the process of resurrecting a fully-equipped film studio attune to their former home at Portland Community Media—where a green screen, multi-camera setup, and mix of analog and digital technologies synthesize to create a new space for accessing and cultivating experimental work. To continue this unique DIY language and growing archive, EHH’s fundraiser benefits the equipment needed for setting-up their new digs. All proceeds directly assist in writing EHH’s LA chapter, where shows will be custom produced, logged, live broadcast, and freely available for HD streaming from floating locations. Committed to shaping and sharing the cultivation of new work through this open platform, you can support Experimental Half-Hour Live in Hollywood by pledging a donation here (through 11:59pm Friday 3.28).
Popping-up with interactive video installations and mobile set-ups throughout the city as part of their month-long campaign, come commune at EHH’s closing appearance: Rebuilding the Temple, an evening of live video synthesis, performance, and video at Human Resources. As EHH’s first live-taped show in the media capital of the world, Rebuilding the Temple promises to be a multimedia experience as conceptually and visually dynamic as the virtuosos mapped through the couple’s ongoing creative collaboration.
