3. Official T-Shirt News

Further Confusion T-Shirt. That is all, nothing more to see here.

4. We Need DJ's

Further Confusion is seeking a few good DJ's for the dances and other
social events in 2008.

If you are a DJ (or laptop musician) who never saw yourself fitting in to
the format of the events at FC, then now is the time to get involved!  We
have expanded the areas where music will be played at night, and have
opportunities for all different genre's.  In particular, we will have
isolated sound areas for music during the evening dances.

Genre's we are particularly interested in finding DJ's/musicians to
represent: theme music for the Fur East theme, disco, 80's & 90's, modern
rock, house, techno, downtempo, ambient, electro, trance and more (not just
dance music).

As well, we are also hoping to open up the projection screens to video
artists during the dances.  So if you are a VJ who is interested in
putting together something, please contact us!

Interested?  Then email by October
31st with your real name, performer name, email address, list of equipment
used/needed, short bio and description of style, and any relevant URL(s)
including any links to online demos (for DJ's and musicians).  Don't have
an online demo?  Let us know, and we can give you a physical address to
send a demo.
