Extended Play: For EAST, A Special New Music Mixer

    Brent Baldwin conducted "Mozart Requiem Undead" a massive 2014 collaboration in which 10 composers were commissioned to rework various movements of Mozart’s Requiem Mass. The project was commissioned by Texas Performing Arts and partners Golden Hornet Project and Fusebox Festival, and debuted at the 2014 Fusebox Festival.

    With the New Music Mixer overlapping this month with the East Austin Studio Tour, Sightlines and KMFA will host something of an extended play version of the casual happy hour-like confab featuring new music composers.

    On Nov. 13 Austin musical originals Steve Parker and Brent Baldwin will join in a discussion moderated by Sightlines editor-in-chief Jeanne Claire van Ryzin as part of the East Austin Studio Tour.

    The New Music Mixer is at Friends & Allies Brewing, 979 Springdale Road, from 5 to 7 p.m. with the presentation portion at 6 p.m. The event is free.

    And this time around we’ll be in the brewery area behind the taproom. Enjoy $1 off locally brewed pints!

    A musician by training, Parker’s artistic practice spans disciplines to include large scale site-specific performances and sound art installations. He recently won the Tito’s Prize and his exhibit “War Tuba Recital” is currently at Big Medium.
