A new suite of music composed by the Mexican electronic composer Murcof in collaboration with instrumental ensemble BCN216 and visual artist Flicker.

This special commission allows Murcof to find full integration between all the elements in his sound, whether acoustic, analogue or digital. Strings, pixelations, brass, digital sweeps and video beams become a single whole in this new audiovisual composition. Collaborating with a viola player, cellist and trombonist from Spanish classical ensemble Bcn216, Murcof will allow the unique qualities of acoustic instruments to mix with microbeats and vast digital atmospherics, letting tracks shift and mutate in a minimal environment. This will be an immersive experience. More than anyone else, Murcof knows how to blend these elements seamless together to move his audience. Peaceful, intense and limitless.

To begin the evening will be the joyous and free display of tuba virtuousity by the incredible solo performer Oren Marshall. Using a bank of electronic effects, he is able to twist the tuba's sound into new and wonderful shapes.
