The Synergy Project
Friday, 30th of March 2007
SEOne Club London Bridge, Weston Street, SE1London UK
The dynamic collective of the Synergy community returns to bring together the many inspired souls of today, to celebrate a better world for tomorrow.
Synergy is a magical indoor festival, combining musicians, Djs, Vjs, performers, and artists from all corners of creativity, joined by various proactive NGO’s and charities.
Synergy strives to create an optimistic approach in raising awareness on the many crucial issues affecting our world today. The events gather some of the UK’s leading creative multimedia organizations alongside international NGO’s such as Oxfam, Survival, Speak, WWF, Greenpeace, Arc, and Campaign Against Climate Change, to provide just the right mix of open hearted enjoyment and meaningful reflection for a new direction.

HARD RAIN – an environmental slide show
Hard Rain takes us on a journey through tropical rainforests, man-made deserts, across mega-cities and peasant villages and into communities of indigenous people living in the most remote habitats on earth. It will inspire participation in the complex debate about climate change, poverty and environmental destruction. A touching piece of work The show starts at 0.45am
DANCING the INVISIBLE (D.I.) – D.I. is a synergy of the polarized fields of art and science.
An EEG monitor and brain interface measures the dancer’s brain signals, animating the internal workings of her mind and body through sound. The projection of the EEG waves affects the infinite loop of the camera feedback component. The dancer’s movements provides a three dimensional screen, which sculpt these elements.
D.I. emphasizes the importance between the internal and external. As the dancer interacts with the technological processes a state of chaos ensues. When the dancer begins to intuitively navigate the parameters, a sense of coherence and flow emerges, redefining order from the chaos she created. The self surrenders and the physical body seem to disappear. None of the elements that create this hybrid piece then leads the other. The polarized elements communicate in an interconnected way. This project focuses on an awareness and understanding of the interconnected nature of life.
The intent is to focus on the present moment and how that moment dictates the next. Through greater consciousness of this process we may sculpt a more harmonious reality. The more we understand ourselves the more we understand our relationship to our environment and the better able we are to find the path of equilibrium. What we do now affects what happens tomorrow.

Talks & Debates
‘ILLUMINATIONS PAST PRESENT AND FUTURE’
Robert Anton Wilson Tribute: The literary genius of the Counterculture has passed on to another reality and we commemorate him with a tribute featuring maverick director Ken Campbell, the director of the play Illuminatus, adapted from Wilson’s brilliant epic work, The Illuminatos Trilogy.
Ken will talk about both the Wilson the man and Wison’s work. Other guests include veteran theatre actor Chris Fairbank who will read parts of speeches from the play. If one man could be said to have put together all the best ideas of the Counterculture, that man was Robert Anton Wilson and we will gather to wish him the best of journeys.
The Future Of Alternative Clubbing Symposium: This featured discussion will be one of the most unique events in clubbing history, Alternative or Mainstream. Organisers of several past and present Alternative clubs will be on stage talking about the ins, outs, ups and downs, highs and lows of the clubs they have been involved in. The long and wonderful journey of Alternative Clubbing will be examined by the people who helped create it, and the Synergy audience will be welcome to join in that examination. Out of that dialogue will come glimpses of the future and how we will party.
Guests featured will include the legendary Fraser Clark, creator of the Mother of all Alternative clubs Megatripolis as well as the trendsetting Warp Experience, Sionaidh Kraigen (Megatripolis), the woman described as the Muse of the Alternative Clubbing scene, Richard and Mary who created and still run the wonderful Whirl-Y-Gig, Jeff Dexter who managed the legendary ‘Roundhouse’ in the late Sixties/early 70’s, Mark Heley who brought the English rave scene to America, running ToonTown in California in the early 90’s, and the Original Co-founders of Synergy itself, Dominik Spiral and StevePeake. Plus other surprise guests. This is a Don’t Miss event!
Indigenous Tribal Awareness: Leading into an all night Indigenous Tribal Awareness Happening will be a fascinating look at various aspects of Indigenous Tribal Life featuring the Psychedelic Rituals of certain African tribes plus their Spiritual Practices. There will also be speakers documenting and taking questions on the recent success of the Bushmen campaign by Survival-International and why this work is important.
You will be taken on an exploration of the issues confronting Indigenous communities in this day and age and how we in the UK can help. Speakers will be posted on the Synergy website and a night of Indigenous Tribal Music and Entertainment will begin immediately after the last talk ends at 1 am.
Host: Jeff (‘GoodJeff’) Laster specializes in organizing Talks and Discussions relevant to the Alternative Culture. He has been involved in the Alternative scene in both America and the UK since the late 60’s and worked in English Alternative Clubs since the mid-90’s. He has been called the ‘Kilroy of the Counterculture’ by Time Out magazine and his passion is to ‘edutain’ the CounterCulture and Rave Generation with challenging political, cultural and spiritual events.
