The Brandon Contemporary presents CRASIS: a collision of music, art and technology

Interactive projections, newly invented instruments, motion-responsive art and giant, immersive sculpture come together in the Brandon's one-night only art/music hybrid event, titled CRASIS. Think of a Simon game the size of a room or a musical sequencer built out of a ceiling fan — art that you can influence with your movements and an installation that swallows the building.

These elements, along with musical performances by local innovators, will create an evening exploring the intersections of art and technology.

CRASIS will feature a performance by James Templeton of an original composition he wrote for two instruments he invented and built himself (which were featured in a recent TEDxHouston talk); interactive video projections by FLCON FCKER; installations by the art collaborative {exurb}, by Eric Todd, Erick Calderon and Mara McCumber (Light Art Interactive) and Stephen Farris; video installations by Jonathan Jindra and Bryan Traylor; a site-specific sculpture by Patrick Renner (artist responsible for the Funnel Tunnel); and live music by Roger Sellers, LIMB, FLCON FCKER, Stephen Farris and Eric Todd.

The word crasis describes "a type of contraction in which two vowels merge into one, making one word from two." The spirit of merging ideas has inspired this gathering of creative minds from different disciplines who don't always work, perform or create together to take part in an event that will be equal parts live music, visual art and tech carnival.
