The CFA is organizing the MiddletownRemix Festival, an event to celebrate the city’s acoustic identity, and feature four world premieres of works commissioned for the festival, three live DJ sets, two art/sound installations, a laptop orchestra, food trucks, and gallery walk. The event will happen on the afternoon of May 11th, and a major part of the festivities is a flashmob dance to a song by DJ Arun Ranganathan and choreographed by Kelsey Siegel ’13, for which the CFA just released the video so people can learn it!
