MusicNOW presents 'Mercury Soul' at Redmoon
Friday, May 13, 2011 at 9:00pm
Redmoon Theater, 1463 W Hubbard St, Chicago
Join musicians from the Chicago Symphony Orchestra in an eclectic evening conceived by Mead Composer-in-Residence Mason Bates (DJ Masonic), Maestro Benjamin Shwartz and designer Anne Patterson. Mercury Soul is a unique and groundbreaking event combining classical musicians, DJs, and immersive visuals in a large, open-format venue.
In between thumping DJ sets, classical performers appear scattered around the space, performing music by 20th-century heavyweights from Stravinsky to Adams. Along with slowly shifting lighting, groovy electro-acoustic interludes help guide the crowd from one musical space to another.
