MIXER: VERSION: Eyebeam presents a remix-inspired spectacular with an iPod rock stage, mobile soundsystem, and a cutting-edge karaoke room among many other delights.
MIXER, Eyebeam’s quarterly event series dedicated to showcasing leading artists in the fields of live audiovisual performance, interactive and participatory art, returns on Tuesday, June 16 and Saturday, June 20, 2009. The upcoming event, dubbed MIXER: VERSION, explores various forms of culture hacking—from software and hardware, to media content and infrastructure.
MIXER: VERSION takes its inspiration in part from the creative approaches of dub reggae music in which an original music recording is remixed by various producers, creating new versions that still reference the original. Within this creative exchange between producers there exists both a competitive spirit and a sense of shared culture.
At MIXER: VERSION, the competition and collaboration take place between the artists and audience through the artwork. Participants can jam on the “rock stage” with hacked iPods, sing ridiculous computer-generated lyrics in the Fever Karaoke room, or produce their own hot audiovisual mixes on the mobile Sansystem. All of that creative magic gets mixed together by our own crack DJs and VJs, so at any given time you might be providing the entertainment for everyone at the party!
