A performance tonight at one of Akron’s underground venues blends experimental music and visual art.
For this week’s Shuffle, The Devil Strip magazine’s music editor Brittany Nader says the show is organized by Hive Mind, which is one of Akron’s do-it-yourself spaces that showcases independent artists.
“The whole point of this show is to blend visual art, performance art, experimental music and noise — and encourage the audience to participate and create this sensory experience,” Nader says.
Boaz Bair, one of the founders of Hive Mind, is bringing in Chicago-based Mako Sica. The band uses guitar, drums and percussion to create to ambient songs that are 10-to-20 minutes long, often meant to be listened to while viewing specific paintings and other artwork.
