Brooklyn, NY — 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.

Causings is a collective with fluid membership and instrumentation based in New York City. The group explores structured improvisation using traditional and non-traditional instruments, 1-bit electronics, found objects, field recordings, cellphones, photographs, and signal-processing software. Since 2015, Causings has been featured on WKCR, WGXC / Wave Farm, Wesleyan University, Bennington College, The New School, and have released music on the Pan y Rosas and Power Moves labels.

Emerging out of Bushwick, Brooklyn, Plan 23 creates extended, immersive, audio-visual experiences that bend one’s perception of time & space. Encompassing a sonic spectrum from dark-ambient soundscapes via subliminal pulses to electro-acoustic psychedelic sounds the group delivers sonic explorations into uncharted spaces, thus redefining electronic psychedelic music for the 21st century. Plan 23 has performed at Knockdown Center, Silent Barn, Trans Pecos, BPM, Index Art Center Newark, Microscope Gallery, 23 Windows, Sonic Front, CADENCE 23, Brooklyn Wildlife Summer Festival, Bushwick Open Studios Arts Festival, Catskill Art Society, and at “Alien Acres” Summer Arts Festival in the Catskill Mountains. Their performance at Mixology Festival 2018 is dedicated to Peter Principle (1954-2017).
