The FESTIVAL OF MIXOLOGY MAY 4-14 highlights artists combining music and audio with moving images and is made possible by a project grant from the National Endowment for the Arts.
Ghosts, images which, like fleeting apparitions, flit ephemerally across the screen. Was it really what there or was it in my mind’s eye? A fantasy projected or a vision dreamed? Filled with a sense of affectionate familiarity, followed by a chill of fear that it may be something long gone that touched us momentarily and then disappeared.
A evening of multiple projections by Troyano and Hughes-Freeland, including a piece for John Zorn’s Elegy and Playboy Voodoo. These projections are spontaneous and aleatory. They vary in degrees of intense lyrical grooviness, interspersed with flashes, vibrating rhythms, cuts and bursts, refractions and fusions. These projections create a shifting hallucinatory invocation which is both mental and physical.
