On Sunday, July 17, from 5-8 p.m., Counterpath hosted an exhibit of material from the Media Archaeology Lab at their tent at the Denver City Park Jazz Festival. Computers from the dawn of the digital as we know it, plus examples from major subsequent eras of media history, including lie detectors and Scientology e-meters, were on display, some of them plugged in and fully functioning for a time-warp experience.
Jamie Allen’s new book with Counterpath, How to Build a Lie, was also released at this event, with discounted copies available. This book documents the work Allen did at the MAL as part of his artist residency on apocryphal technologies.
City Park Jazz produces 10 free jazz concerts each summer in the crown jewel of Denver’s Parks, City Park. Jazz, blues and salsa, the predominant forms of music presented at the concerts, have broad appeal with a diverse, urban community. Please see the City Park Jazz calendar for the remaining performances this summer.
