Fossil fuels do more than threaten the stability of the Earth’s the climate; fossil fuel extraction destroys the communities where oil, coal and gas are removed from the ground. Mountaintop removal coal mining, hydraulic fracturing (“fracking”) for natural gas, oil drilling, and pipelining each pose incredible risks to water supplies and to the health of local residents. As the people in these communities suffer, the political and economic sway of fossil fuels companies allow them to continue with their destructive ways.

experimental music group presents….
WEDNESDAY 4/30: TECHNÉ SERIES 1: THE MIXER: MARINA ROSENFELD AND G LUCAS CRANE
The Techné Series considers philosophies and practices of music technology. Each occasion of the series will focus on a particular theme within the context of presentations, workshops, and live performances. For Techné Series: The MIXER, Wesleyan invites two composers who utilize the ubiquitous audio mixer for vastly different means. The principal performers are, G. Lucas Crane and Marina Rosenfeld. Crane and Rosenfeld are two artists who use found sound to create sheets of delicate sonic webs. Each uses DJ mixers to mix tapes and records in a unique fashion borrowing equally from hip hop technique and the american avant-garde. The artists are spiritual cousins, using similar styles and equipment, but have never before collaborated.
