Mineo Kawasaki was been visiting Calgary frequently over the last handful of years, often centred around his memorable performances at the Sled Island festival. Kawasaki's sets are truly mesmerizing, combining precise, lithe drumming with samples, electronic processing, and a subtly, constantly, shifting rhythmic framework that recalls the longform structures of certain kinds of electronic dance music. Kawasaki's fluid technique makes the work seem rather effortless, but the parts are quite involved and complex, but without seeming so, making this a type of music that will satisfy the closest listening as well as that of the more oblique listener. His sets at this year's Sled Island were many attendee's festival highlights, and we are excited to finally present Mineo at Bug Incision, in a special partnership with the esteemed Loophole Coffee Bar.



Arts&Crafts is the overarching moniker for many of the musical activities coming from Lydia Pineau, multi-instrumentalist musician, composer, and improvisor, among other things. Lydia has been making waves on the scene here since around 2018, and has become a valued member of the city's creative music community, recently performing at this year's Sound Atlas festival, alongside Jiajia Li, Nater Waters, Jonathon Wilcke, and Chris Dadge as Circular Sparrow. Drums were one of her first major instruments, and this set will see her in full-on re-engagement mode with this instrument. Lydia will be relocating to Montreal in the near future, so one is well advised to check out her action while it's still convenient!



Overzealous is the solo nom de plume for Matthew Springer, another vibrant prolific and stimulating member of Calgary's arts & music scene. Matthew (while not working as an eye-popping visual artist and designer) is often seen behind the drums, alternately as leader of his shape-shifting free music collective The Phanerozoic Eon, noise-pop duo Radioactive Vampire Teeth, and eclectic post-punk heroes Dial Up. His music is multi-facteted and unpredictable - just how we like it - and word has it that this set will have a particular focus on the almighty drumset. Buckle up.

BUG INCISION ARCHIVES:

In January of this year, we began work on the Bug Incision Archives, which will round up all audio, video, & photo documentation, press coverage, and promotional materials relating to the Bug Incision Presents concert series, dating back to early 2006.

While this archive will undoubtedly result in some new documentation being available to the general public, the main goal is for it to be accessible to its participants (the artists and documenters) for their own uses, while also providing a thorough overview of the series' activities for internal purposes.

HOW TO GET INVOLVED: Bug Incision has a huge archive of materials in its possession currently, but there are holes all over the 14 year history, not to mention more and potentially better-quality iterations of existing event documentation. If you have any photos, videos, or audio recordings of Bug Incision Presents concerts, we would be very interested in getting our hands on them for inclusion in the archive.

For information on how to get us these media items, as well as information on privacy, credits, and more details about the planned usage of materials, please email: bugincision@gmail.com
