Last night at the MMiX Festival, the lights were low, but the energy was high. The creators of Ableton LIVE and Cycling ’74’s Max/MSP/Jitter, Gerhard Behles and David Z, were in the house and showed us the future of music software with Todd Reynolds‘ and Luke DuBois‘ Max for LIVE workshop. And in a nod to the past, Steven Litt allowed us to appreciate our old vinyl records in a new way by hooking up his CrudBox to 8 vintage turntables. The performances by Patrick Grant Group, Kathleen Supove and Elliott Sharp/Janene Higgins merged technology with humor, theater, science, incredible visual art and highly skilled musicianship.
TONIGHT: Put on your dancing shoes for the last night of the MMiX Festival – first up at 6:30, the artists of Chronotronic Wonder Transducer present their group performance; Ben Neill and Bill Jones merge mutantrumpet with video artistry; and DJ Rekha brings her deep bhangra beats to MMiX. Come on up and get down at our closing night party…your Monday morning will thank us for it!
