EMC aims to support and work alongside the local community by providing a very unique surround-sound experience. Part of the proceeds of this event will be donated to MusiCares who provides a safety net of critical assistance for music people in times of need. EMC is also working in affiliation with ‘The Body Bar Day Spa’ who will be providing chair massage during the performance and will be handing out $25 gift certificates to the first 20 people through the door.
It is also part of EMC’s goal to educate the general public to the tools and techniques involved in the creation of such an event. Artists will therefore be introducing you to some of the behind-the-scenes technologies that go into creating, experiencing and understanding surround-sound and their individual crafts.
