The evening (8 p.m. onwards in the Brigantine Room) features the fictional multimedia musical universe of Post-Audio NetLab - where audiences engage with an invented collection of 400 CDs (complete with music, video, CD sleeves and flyers) as a listener or by remixing proposed tracks. Comments and information exchange are highly encouraged in this idealistic music community created by Montreal artist centre Agence TOPO. Joining Agence TOPO this night only are Toronto/Montreal performers and DJs Alexis O'Hara, nAnalog, Luci, Jay Hunsberger, The Mole and Tom Kuo (aka Task).

Also from May 20 to July 10 - Toronto artist Roman B. Milo creates a massive digital printout installation called Destructive Architecture #07 by using of base64 computer code as a means of generating binary/genetic anomalies that multiply into unforeseen forms.
