Bee Cave Arts Foundation presents BuzzFest
BuzzFest, the second annual music, tech, and art festival presented by the Bee Cave Arts Foundation, is a three-day event that touts a unique lineup of musical talent. Performers will include Shigeto, Baths, Suzi Analogue and Graham Reynolds, DJ sets by Soundfounder and Butcher Bear of Exploded Drawing and immersive performances by ARCOS Dance, Rosalyn Nasky and Emily Rushing.
BuzzFest will showcase eight tech art installations, including Hexamation, a large-scale, 40-foot diameter hex-grid installation of 19 light towers that behave in unison as they visualize seismic data from Texas observation points using colors and temporal rendering; Deep Quanta, which consists of four eight foot light towers, each with 16 giant white pixels that allow the towers to match musical sentences with visual sentences, creating elaborate choreographies based on an abstract, electronic music composition; and Laser Cube, a decked out and elevated meditative space with organic looking light forms and dance floor inside a 12-foot truss cube that responds to live music.
Additional focal points on the “art path” throughout the Central Plaza include video projections in two retail windows, dadaGeek’s juried tech art exhibition at The Hive, and light installations lining the main street in front of The Hive that will display colors and temporal rendering based on the live musical performances. Dining options will include the Hill Country Galleria’s restaurants, as well as food trucks, and alcoholic beverages will be available with purchase of drink tickets for attendees that are 21 and older.
