The Creative Process Behind Golden Hornet’s MXTX

Graham Reynolds + Coka Treviño + Felipe Pérez Santiago + Orión García

The Blanton Museum of Art is pleased to partner with Austin’s Fusebox Festival in presenting a look into the process of creating the music for Golden Hornet’s MXTX with DJ-producer Orión García, composer-bandleader Graham Reynolds, and other guests. Part talk, part concert, this gives you a behind-the-scenes peek into a timely project that pairs well with the museum’s exhibition The Avant-Garde Networks of Amauta: Argenta, Mexico, and Peru in the 1920s. The cross-border project involves more than 40 artists and will ultimately result in an open-source audio sample library, an album, and live performances through a collaborative exchange between composers and DJ-producers from both sides of the Rio Grande. Presented by Golden Hornet and co-commissioned by Ballroom Marfa and Kathleen & Harvey Guion, MXTX is co-curated by Coka Treviño, Orión García, Felipe Pérez Santiago, and Graham Reynolds. This project is supported in part by the National Endowment for the Arts.
