Mixed Use Media comes from thinking different forms of art/media can be created out of the same idea, not a collage or layer, but one cohesive piece. They bring electro-beats, noise-rock and IDM style synths to the stage with a socio-political backdrop while streaming it all live online.

Biography

A small group of artists, writers and musicians created Mixed Use Media from thinking that different forms of art/media can be created out of the same idea, not as a collage or layer, but as one cohesive piece. A modern adaptation of Wagner's Gesamkunstwerk(or Total Art), Mixed Use Media produce music, video, screened shirts and posters, CD's & SD cards and an official blog. They broadcast shows live online as well as perform larger shows that include dancers and live video feeds.
The group brings early 90's noise-rock, electro-beats and IDM style synths to the stage with a socio-political backdrop. Achieving a rare balance in their innovative blend of synth/beat/guitar, the video seemingly arises from a quick bout of synesthesia. Corresponding images take the audience deeper into the samples and distortion during songs like Master Control and 500lb Bombs. The beginning of Robot Revival is a delayed acoustic guitar and minimalist beat, while the second half of the song is a dance party with animated newspaper clippings.

Lyrics

Heat

Written By: Mixed Use Media

Did you notice

This line never moves
Just stays in place

Did you notice

Conflict makes great substance
Press delete and patch the wreck
With hooks in our eyes
We rummage now through what's left
All you ever knew is
What no one ever thought about

Did you notice
