In June 2012, I gave a session of pure data workshop for Faculty of Music Sekolah Tinggi Seni Riau (STSR – High School of Art Riau). The workshop session was part of DOWNLOAD event, an event that was organized by Rumah Seni Budaya Siku Keluang, Sindikat Cuci Otak and lifepatch.
For DOWNLOAD event, I gave a lecture session in Universitas Muhammadiyah Riau (UMR), Pekanbaru. The lecture session was an introduction to Media Art with some examples of my community and my activities. The session was started with Adhari Donora, representing from the organizer of DOWNLOAD events. DOWNLOAD itself is an initiative from Rumah Seni Budaya Siku Keluang, Sindikat Cuci Otak, and lifepatch.
When I was in Pekanbaru, Riau, Sumatra, I met El, a guy who used active in underground movement of Yogyakarta. He was about my age and even tho his face looks familiar, we never actually talked when he was still in Yogyakarta. And it was ages ago, like back in 1998-2002. So anyway, he now live in Pekanbaru and have a band called Cigarettes Wedding.
