The Ohio EA Mixer is an exciting new event for electronic music enthusiasts, featuring works from students at Ohio University, Baldwin-Wallace, Ohio State University, and Oberlin College and Conservatory. The one-day festival will take place on January 28th, 2023, at 2 and 6 pm in Glidden Recital Hall at Ohio University.

Visiting Assistant Professor in TIMARA, Chris Poovey, will be leading a group of students from Oberlin Conservatory’s TIMARA Department to present their works at the festival. According to Poovey, “The Ohio EA Mixer is a great opportunity for TIMARA students to showcase their works and connect with other students creating electronic media in Ohio. The works will include fixed audio and audio-visual pieces, as well as works with live interactive electronics.”

The TIMARA majors who will be presenting their works at the Ohio EA Mixer are fifth-year Ivy Fu, seniors Gabriel Baskin, Maya McCollum, and Rachel Yee, and first year students Oliver Harlan and Will Judd.

Ivy Fu will be presenting “Hello Tom”, which is a contemplation on the appropriation of the body, the unethical exploitation of technology, and the simulation of false images in the digital age. Oliver Harlan’s “ephemerate” is an audiovisual piece that blends glitch and ambient soundscapes accompanied by abstract visuals created from filmed footage. Will Judd’s “Bâton” is a stereo fixed media piece that captures the gravity and intensity of the moment before the music begins. Gabe Baskin’s “s’shn” is a stereo fixed media piece. Maya McCullum’s “To Carry Forward” is a violin, electronics, and sound sculpture piece, and Rachel Yee’s “Anchor Me” is a piano and multichannel live electronics piece that is an excerpt from an upcoming immersive musical theater work.

Don’t miss the opportunity to experience the unique and innovative works created by these talented students. If you are near Athens, Ohio, join us on January 28th at the Ohio EA Mixer.
