plastiq (Saturday, 9pm)
Improvising with voice, synthesizer, beats and acoustic instruments like the mbira and violin, the group explores the interface between acoustic and synthetic tones. A plastiq live happening originates music profoundly shaped by the character of the room and scope given. It challenges the audience’s listening habits and spatial orientation. Music is social experience and practice. It has the power to evoke inner images, to raise ideas. It is the fabric narratives are made of. Music invokes action. When plastiq allow the improvised, the insofar chaotic, they allow utopia.
