Civic TV Laboratories Sound Series is an ongoing series of sound events curated by Gerritt Wittmer of Misanthropic Agenda Records in collaboration with the laboratories at Civic TV.  The vision of the series is to foster a deepening connection between Houston's community of experimental musicians and sound artists with communities from other cities around the globe.  The organizer of the program, Gerritt Wittmer, is uniquely positioned to so as the founder and director of Misanthropic Agenda records, one of the leading record label's fostering an international connectivity between experimental musicians and sound artists.


This matinee concert series curated by Houston based experimental musician Jonathan Read (The Wiggins) evokes the spirit of house shows, bringing local musicians into the gallery setting to play experimental, acoustic, and one-off sets.  Often showcasing popular Houston musicians who are themselves in larger ensembles, this matinee series offers these artists the chance to play sets of material they rarely have the chance to play; in turn offering audiences the opportunity to see some of their favorite local musicians play sets they have never, and may never otherwise, have the chance to experience.
