KBOO's newest baby bird flying from the nest, following the footsteps of Pickathon and other KBOO sponsored events that have grown great big wings, flying high and in formation with the Radio Station that sat, incubating the egg, nursing the young baby bird until it was ready to go: InterArts is the newest one I speak of. InterArts is the creation of KBOO producer Sean Ongley and St. Johns business owner Jeffrey Helwig, out of the wake of KBOO's heavy involvement with "No.Fest:Nu.Music.Arts" starting in 2008 with a remote broadcast and 2009 with umbrella status to assist in our fund raising. From that model, InterArts incorporated. The event as it is now forming in to its 3rd realization is focused more on the multi-cultural and interdisciplinary than ever before.

To some, it must seem like this young electronic producer came out of nowhere. Emancipator played his first live show in July 2009, opening for Bonobo at the Roseland Theater (cap. 1500). Since then, he’s toured with Bassnectar, drawn crowds at festivals like Trinumeral and Symbiosis, and closed out Sound Tribe Sector 9’s late night parties in Denver at the request of the band.
