Join Kid Koala's turntable orchestra with this interactive live performance. Kid Koala presents an innovative collection of dreamy, atmospheric tracks composed especially for this event. In this latest live experience, audience members are seated at stations equipped with a turntable, effects box, and a small crate of color-coded vinyl records. Through subtle colored lighting changes, the audience is cued to play along. An integral part of the show, the audience accompanies Kid Koala to create an “ambient vinyl orchestra,” melding individual strains into a fluid body of sound. The idea is to have 60 harmonized turntables create a unique, uplifting, dynamic evening of light and music.

This performance will also take place on:
Wednesday, April 18 at 7:00
Wednesday, April 18 at 9:30
