Sightlines and KMFA launch New Music Mixer series

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.

Sightlines is teaming up to KMFA 89.5 FM to launch the New Music Mixer, a monthly happy hour series for alt classical music superfans, musicians and newbies alike at East Austin brewery Friends and Allies Brewing.

Each month a different Austin-based composer will share something about her or his artistic and professional practice — an inspirational playlist, notes on a work-in-progress or perhaps ideas for a new composition.

The Jan. 16 kick-off mixer features composer Cassie Shankman.

Admission is FREE; drafts of beer are $4.
