For the September edition of Video Bar, local artist Constantine Katsiris has assembled a special playlist of videos by media artists from across Canada, as well as two guests from Austria. As director of both the PANOSPRIA label and QUIET CITY concert series, Constantine has selected video works by artists active in the fields of electroacoustic, noise, and experimental music, making his programme as much for the ear as for the eye.
