Want your mind challenged, your third eye opened and your dancing feet stimulated?

The New Forms Festival, now in its 12th year, brings together musicians, visual artists and makers-of-things, including scientists, engineers and designers. All pool their resources, skills and knowledge for mind-blowing art installations and performances.

Where else can you see a Mixmaster repurposed as a drawing machine and catch a set by an influential UK DJ/producer?

Among the artists and work to watch for at this year’s New Forms Festival is Actress, a UK DJ/producer whose music is described as β€œmurky, minimal techno… programmed to suit afro-futuristic sounds of all persuasions.” Andres Wanner exhibits domestic devices (such as a Mixmaster) repurposed as drawing machines. Local band Meek Odyssey plays a set of electro-acoustic pop from their 2012 album Florid New Hymns.

And the French Electronic Music Showcase presents high-profile artists from France such as Canblaster, Kangding Ray and Pilooski.
