Olympia Sync Summit 2016 Announced!
The Sync Summit returns to Olympia in August of 2016 starting with an exciting month long IndieGoGo campaign through the month of January coinciding with the release of all the footage from the 2014 Olympia Sync Summit.
In August of 2014 Sync Book Press hosted the first Olympia Sync Summit. The event featured; A Radio8Ball Show hosted by Andy Shmushkin with music from Peter David Connelly of The Mona Reels and a Skype-In question from Mark Hosler of Negativland; A tour of The Kabbalistic Tree of Olympia led by Andras Jones (Accidental Initiations); & presentations from Rodney Ascher (Room 237), Joe Alexander (Back To The Future predicts 911), Ezra Sandzer-Bell (Astro Musik), Marty Leeds (Pi and The English Alphabet), Scott Onstott (Secrets In Plain Sight), Swami Anantananda Giri (The Yogic Gospel of Thomas), James Evan Pilato (Media Monarchy), David Plate (Always Record), Will Morgan (42 Minutes) & Alan Abbadessa-Green (Sync Book Press). As great as the presentations were the Sync Summit was way more than the sum of its parts. The connections we shared and the projects inspired are still resonating in the Sync community.
The entire event was filmed and is now available at thesyncbook.com/oly2014
The time has come to prepare for the next Sync Summit. There are many details yet to be set but this is what we know…
– The Sync Summit will kick off on August 18th with full moon walk of The Kabbalistic Tree of Olympia.
– On the evening of August 19th there will be a Radio8Ball Show hosted by Andras Jones with guests to be announced.
– As opposed to presentations, this Sync Summit will focus on moderated conversations on a wide range of Sync topics led by luminaries from the Sync community.
– Like last time, presenters and guests will be housed at Fertile Ground and their associated facilities, a beautiful, bountiful little bit of paradise on the edge of downtown Oly built around a community garden that provides the materials for the breakfasts we will share each morning.
The rest really depends on the success of the IndieGoGo campaign and ticket pre-sale that is running through the end of January. It’s basically a ticket pre-sale (with some other sweet perks for those who want to support it but may not be able to attend).
The thing about a Sync event is that every attendee is crucial to the fabric of what we will create, and that means you. Do you feel the call? If you do, we want you to be there.
