We want to bring together experimental electronic musicians and multimedia artists in Tacoma and give them a place to perform, make connections, and find inspiration. To this end, Chris has organized several events, including the chiptune event Shiftwave, and the Tacoma Noise rodeo. We are currently looking for venues looking to host the rodeo in the future, so please let us know if you have a space and are interested!
Bagger288 was originally the collaboration between John Fisher and John Farrell. John Farrell tragically passed away in 2009, but Fisher wants to continue the legacy of the art and music they created together by continuing to use the Bagger 288 name and creating great art and music. The two Johns together produced live improvised experimental music, wrote poetry, made video art, paintings, and multimedia sculptures, and laughed, lived art and enjoyed life to the fullest. We plan to continue this legacy.
