Tipper joins Quixotic in Austin Feb 23 for an unforgettable experience
Published: January 28, 2013
On February 23rd at the Austin Music Hall in Austin, Texas audiences will have the unique opportunity to witness an event of historic proportions, fusing the beauty of technology with live performance art in its highest form.
For one evening and one evening only, British composer and producer Tipper will join performance cirque group Quixotic to create the ultimate Valentine’s Masquerade Party experience. As featured on TED, Quixotic is an ensemble of artists from various disciplines including aerial acrobatics, dance, fashion, film, music and visual effects. The Kansas City collective mixes violin-based pop, ballet, modern dance, aerial aerobatics, with a dazzling light show. Refusing to be constrained to any specific art form and challenging traditional perceptions, Quixotic creates a total sensory experience unlike any other for their audience while exploring infinite possibilities of movement, sound and multimedia.
Dave Tipper is a British composer and producer specializing in electronic music that ranges from ambient, through trip-hop, to uptempo nuskool breakbeat. His live performances consist largely of his own unreleased compositions, and he is highly regarded for scratching his own sounds over his music, creating a live element of turntablism stemming from prowess early in his career as a vinyl DJ. A Tipper live show is a spectacle of incredible precision and sonic accuracy, punctuated by thick and luxurious super-low bass. The dance floor becomes an ethereal field of holographic sound creating a totally immersive environment.
Ever energetic beatmaker VibeSquaD will open the night, after which Quixotic will fill stage with color and light as vibrant musicians, acrobats, dancers, and aerialists explore the space from end to end. Tipper will then join Quixotic as the two acts take the audience on an unparalleled journey of audio-visual experimentation to close out the evening.
