Mixology Festival 2018: Circuit Breakers: Causings // Plan 23
On the third night of Mixology 2018: Circuit Breakers, Causings investigates two intertwining sound worlds: one of glacial music formed by intensely slow-moving polyrhythms, the other a malleable choreography for honing free form at the microcosmic level; while Silver Chord from Plan 23 offers ocean waves of textured, mostly electronic sound palettes, forming an integrated music that crosses the sensitivity of great improvisers with the experimentation of early electronics pioneers.

Mixology Festival 2018: Circuit Breakers presents four evenings and seven musical artists and ensembles who bend, blend, and extend electronic instruments and tools toward new realms of creative communication. Surreal songs, ritual roustings, radiophonic phenomena, and a multimedia mélange will incite, inspire, and inhabit. Active for over 25 years, Roulette’s Mixology Festival celebrates new and unusual uses of technology in music and the media arts. Primarily a snapshot of current activity, Mixology strives to reflect both the history and trends of innovation that impact the Zeitgeist.
