Concert Music


When: Wed., Jan. 28, 6-9 p.m. 2009

The New Music Collective presents Beatrix*Jar in a musical experience that’s sure to be a first. The Minneapolis-based “sound art duo” — comprised of Bianca Pettis (Beatrix) and Jacob Aaron Roske (Jar) — tours the country spreading not only their music, but teaching workshops on a little something called circuit bending. According to their website, “Using recycled keyboards, drum machines, and children’s toys, students make unique sonic discoveries unleashing hidden sounds the manufacturer never intended.” Workshop attendees need no prior electronic knowledge, and kids as young as eight can attend. Just bring a sound-making toy and some extra batteries and get ready to bend your mind. After the workshop, Beatrix*Jar will spread out their colorful array of noisemakers and give one of the most unique performance of electronic music you’ll ever see. —Erica Jackson
