The Museum of Contemporary Art_Toronto_Canada and The Royal Conservatory of Music present Christof Migone’s Mixer, a mix of works presented in simultaneity, in the lobbies of Koerner Hall as part of the 21C Music Festival.

Mixer marks the beginning of a collaborative programming relationship between The Royal Conservatory of Music and the Museum, and offers a first glimpse into the type of experience that will enliven the Museum’s future home, the Auto BLDG., opening in May 2017. Hosting Mixer in the lobbies of Koerner Hall presents the opportunity to execute programming that operates under the idea of the “agora”, the philosophy of the Museum.

About Mixer:
A mix of works presented in simultaneity. The layered performances explore repetitive gestures, sonic references, and somatic rhythms. Mixer is a list of verbs: translating, reading, singing, aging, spitting, breathing, sneezing, releasing, muting, counting, and testing. Mixer activates space and is performed outside of the concert hall favoring small, mobile, and furtive strategies. Mixer thrives in the interstices – ranging from brief eruptions to longer sustained activities, from discordant surges to subtle moments. Sometimes the public can interact and at other times the performers are right beside people, doing something perplexing or imperceptible, or even inaudible. Mixer is part of 21C but is more 22D - 23E - 24F - 25G.

Includes performances and works by:
Abbas Akhavan, Ronnie Clarke, Francisco-Fernando Granados, Jessica Karuhanga, Duncan MacDonald, Hazel Meyer, Christof Migone, Stephen Mueller, Lisa Myers, Juliana Pivato, Tazeen Qayyum, Jon Sasaki, Skawennati, Xuan Ye, and Andrew Zukerman.
