DJ Ripley at Fuse Friday for C.H.A.T. digital media festival

Oakland-based DJ Ripley comes from the branch of digital investigators like Wayne Marshall doing as much research on beats, ethnomusicology, or copyright as they are  with their mixing skills.

So, it's natural she would be here for the C.H.A.T. festival, hosted by UNC's Institute for the Arts and Humanities this week. As the organizers put it, "CHAT will draw together the diverse digital resources of the Triangle area in a series of performances, discussions, exhibitions and workshops to showcase Collaborations: Humanities, Arts & Technology."

As part of The Art and Culture of the DJ section of the fest, along with sociologist and hip-hop scholar Oliver Wang, Ripley will talk and jam the tunes on Friday.

Among the panels and discussions that started yesterday and run through Saturday, music comes up in bleeps of talk about fair use and other topics, and in blasts of plain old floor-smashing rhythmic bliss.

Local steadfast folks Yugen, One Duran, along with WXYC music director Montgomery Morris, fill out the roster for Fuse.

In fact, tune into XYC tonight at 9 p.m. for the winning entries in the Locally Produced Digital Music Showcase, a contest curated by WXYC, in partnership with the festival.

Pop over to some of the events during the festival, then drop in to Fuse for the bass in yer face.
