Mind on Fire is an experimental, new music ensemble based here in Baltimore. With a focus on new or underproduced works by living composers, their performances take place across an array of venues in the region and often incorporate multidisciplinary performers into dialogue with them. At Le Mondo, they will be performing works from composers Sky Macklay, Tariq Ravelomanana (Infinity Knives), and Alex Vaughan, interspersed with performance pieces from The Arm (music), LaTeisha Melvin (dance), and Rohan Pathare (performance).
Music of multiphonics, shouts, glass bottles, speed, mania, and celebration for sacred food.
A nocturne of three Infinity Knives tracks, scored for chamber ensemble - nostalgia, sadness, and cool jams.
It has come to my attention that I have a sexy voice.
Come hear it.
ADDITIONAL PERFORMANCES FROM

An award-winning dancer and educator moving in concert with our chamber ensemble and ecstatically with herself.
A digital artist of immense creativity placing his ghostly image inside old family videos, reacting to his movements in real time.
ABOUT MIND ON FIRE
Mind On Fire is a musical arts organization, collaboratively presenting contemporary music in Baltimore and beyond.
Founded in 2016, Mind on Fire is the result of countless late night discussions about the future of classical music, and whether it is a tradition that must be preserved. It is also the result of discussions about the future of classical musicians--although they study a type of historical performance, these musicians are contemporary artists of the time, finding their inspiration from the events happening around them.
The ultimate result--Mind on Fire--is a cooperative of highly trained musicians whose goal is to eliminate barriers--the barriers between audience and musician, between classically-trained musicians and artists from every discipline, and the barrier between any music lover and the tools needed to make the music of their dreams.
