MIXER, Eyebeam’s quarterly showcase for audiovisual performance and interactive art, goes back to the future – to the dawn of the imagined internet.

On Saturday, April 9, MIXER: Past Futures transforms Eyebeam’s vast West Chelsea space into an immersive environment combining video, music, design, and fashion to evoke visions of the future – both utopian and dystopian – as depicted through literature, movies, and video games of the recent past. MIXER: Past Futures conjures the spirit of both early internet theories and visual style, suggesting an alternate version of our own current reality, reflecting what was and what could be.

Eclectic, outrageous, sometimes mystifying but always imbued with a powerful jazz consciousness, the music of Sun Ra has withstood its skeptics and detractors for nearly three generations. And well it should, since Sun Ra has been both apart of and ahead of the jazz tradition during that time. Like Duke Ellington and swing-era pioneer Fletcher Henderson, Sun Ra learned early on to write music in an arranged form that showcased the specific talents of his individual Arkestra members, and he has retained the services of some of these musicians to this day: John Gilmore, Marshall Allen, and Julian Priester for example since they first joined in the 1950's.

Saturn Never Sleeps was originally created by music producer King Britt and artist Rucyl for two performances specifically dedicated to the music and sound of Sun-Ra. Inspired by the works of classic electronic innovators like Herbie Hancock, Raymond Scott and Delia Derbyshire, the experiment began July 2009 and continued every month at Painted Bride Art Center in Philadelphia and at the Knitting Factory in Brooklyn.

Thunder Horse Video is a post-matrix media art collective and production company consisting of Jude MC, Taran Allen, and Alex Gvojic. The trio has turned heads via their recent collaborations with performance artists such as Gatekeeper, SALEM, White Car, and Daniel Lopatin (Oneohtrix Point Never, Games). THV’s aim is to elaborate upon conventional ideas of live performance stage effect, and although their approach can be hosted in numerous cinematic formats, it is antithetically two-dimensional—an assemblage of aesthetic experience.
