Dear friends,

The Cybernetic Orchestra (at McMaster University, Hamilton, Canada) is pleased to announce the release of our second CD "Shift"!  

The album features further development of the orchestra's "staples" (network synchronized beats, live coding in the ChucK programming language) as well a guest performance by Montréal tabla player Shawn Mativetsky.

We're celebrating the release with 2 album release parties this weekend - in Hamilton Friday night and then in Toronto Saturday night (details below).  Before and after the parties you can listen to, or download, the entire album online (free, open access).

Enjoy - and say hi if you come to the release parties!

Yours truly,

---the details---
