Click Music: "Exploratory Devices"

  • Click Workspace

You're invited to the first concert in Click's new music series, designed to provide musicians with a venue to experiment with their artforms. "Exploratory Devices" is a double-bill featuring George Langford (Javelin) and 3rdness by Noam Schatz.

Armed with several Critter & Guitari Kaleidoloops, George Langford of the band Javelin creates textural sonic collages and invites you join in this rare, hands-on and improvisatory affair. Audience participation is encouraged.

3rdness is the nom de noise of Noam Schatz, a veteran of the Valley music scene, usually found behind the drums of rock and rolling bands such as The Capitulators and Endless Mike.

Circuit bending is the art of destruction, purposefully breaking toy keyboards and drum machines until they unveil compelling new sounds. The juggling and tossing of stray electrons. The weaving and warping of synthetic tones and noises.

There is an inherent unpredictability in the circuit bent instruments, making them a perfect medium for the improviser. Once the music begins, not even the electrons know how it will turn out.

In former lives, Noam has played with local luminaries Mobius Band, Meathawk and the Meathawks, The Sometimes, and the Sun Parade.

Admission is $10 cash at the door. Beer and wine will be available.

Arts Night Out: Suzuki Cellists of NCMC || U.S. Schematic Maps

Click Workspace opens its doors for another Arts Night Out evening. This month features...

5:30-6:30 p.m: Performance by the Suzuki cello students of Northampton Community Music Center.

The Suzuki Cellists of NCMC take cello lessons each week and study in group classes twice a month.  They range in age from 3 to 17 years old and while some have been studying cello for over 10 years, others have been playing for less than a year.  All of them look forward to performing together for the community at Arts Night Out!

On display: Transit Authority Figures' graphic art exhibition, "United States Schematic Maps" (closing month)

Think of any state in the USA. 

Picture the general iconic shape of that state. Now imagine all the locations you’ve heard of—cities, vacation spots, college towns, roadside attractions, mountains, beaches, battlefields, the famous and the infamous. How many can you mentally pin onto that shape? With what degree of accuracy?

Inspired by subway maps, these schematics position and link the ‘most important’ places in every state. And—like subway maps—positioning is somewhat distorted, detail is eliminated, and lines are straightened to create the most simple and memorable diagram possible. 

By approximating relative locations in an orderly and minimal fashion, we hope to create for the observer new mental maps that endure long after viewing.

Present Like a Pro: 7 Ways to Avoid Being Super Boring & Scared on Stage

Presenter: Angela Lussier, Speaker | Author | Trainer

Workshop Description:

You buy tickets to your annual industry conference. You scour the workshop listing, circle your favorites, and set out the door for what promises to be a big day of education, entertainment, and hopefully, lifelong connections. You arrive at your first workshop of the day and the speaker falls flat. His slides are boring, his affect is that of a day-old pancake, and there are no juicy takeaways. Presenter #2 seems scared of herself (never mind the audience) and can barely piece together a sentence. As an audience member, you recognize it’s going to be a long day of poorly created presentations. You may also realize that it could be YOU who’s up there presenting, if only you knew where to start and how to avoid the many mistakes you observe in the speakers throughout the day. In this 90-minute interactive workshop, you’ll learn the seven key strategies professional speakers use to engage their audience, leave a lasting impression, and give a presentation that not only educates, but has the audience talking about you for days or weeks to come. If public speaking is an area in which you want to excel, you don’t want to miss this workshop!

About the Presenter:

Stop waiting and start creating. That’s Angela’s philosophy. She doesn’t just walk her talk; she runs full-sprint likely wearing some brightly colored outfit. Most recently, she created the Speaking School for Women to train creative, entrepreneurial women to become well-paid, in-demand speakers. She is also the founder of the Speaker Sisterhood, a global network of speaking clubs for women (there’s even one at Click starting September 19th!). Even though Angela was a “shy girl,” it didn’t stop her from becoming an award-winning speaker with 500+ presentations under her belt – including 2 TEDx talks. She is the host of the Claim the Stage podcast and her work has been featured on ABC, NBC, Forbes, and Entrepreneur. She lives in Holyoke, MA with her husband and two strange cats.

Get Out of Your Own Way: How to Win Sales By Not Trying So Hard

Workshop Description: 

You can be great at your job, an expert in your industry, and a poor salesperson, selling for less than you should, allowing prospects not to get back to you, and wasting time on free consulting. This workshop addresses why being an expert is different than knowing how to sell, and what to do about it.

About the Presenter:

Nicolas Boillot is Chief Operating Officer of SystemOne, a technology firm headquartered at TechSpring in Springfield. Previously, he was co-founder of HB Agency, where he served as CEO for 16 years before it was acquired in the fall of 2015. His biggest regret is that he ran that company for 6 years before taking sales training which became "rocket-fuel" for his business.

Investor Office Hours

9:00 am09:00

Investor Office Hours

Created to promote access to, and understanding of, angel capital, Office Hours gives entrepreneurs who are not yet ready to apply for funding a chance to meet with angel investors who have experience with early-stage investing. Entrepreneurs will learn about funding sources in western Massachusetts, what angel investing is and what it isn't, who it's for, and how to determine if it's right for their startups. Office Hours are unstructured discussions and involve no decisions about funding.

This session has limited seats, so register early. Due to space constraints, we ask that a maximum of two representatives per company attend.

Sessions begin with a presentation by a private investor on the basics of early-stage funding and the typical investment process. Following this, each entrepreneur will meet one-on-one with an angel investor, who will provide feedback on the business venture and answer questions about the angel investing process. 


Please note: Attending an Office Hours session does not guarantee your company will be considered for funding by any of the angel investors or groups they are associated with. This is not a screening session and you are not pitching for funding.

This event is free, but those wishing to attend must book their ticket in advance. 

A typical schedule is as follows:
Funding Overview (9am to 10am)
Slot 1 (10am to 10:30am)
Slot 2 (10:30am to 11am)
Slot 3 (11am to 11:30am)

Each entrepreneur will be assigned a time slot to meet one-on-one with an angel investor upon arrival.
