About The McLean Mix:

Husband-wife composer/performer duo Priscilla and Barton McLean form the McLean Mix, employing an unusual combination of (1) audience interactive installations or "creative playpens" through use of technology, (2) virtuosic and evocative concerts and lecture/performances, (3) extensive use of visual media, and (4) specific thematic content drawing from sources such as intriguing experimental techniques, world music, and sounds of nature. Their versatility is evidenced by their extensive touring as full-time artists in virtually all corners of the world for the past 20 years, after having taught at major universities before that (see Academic Credentials link).. Although often centering its activity around university residencies and concerts which serve as its mainstay, The McLean Mix is equally at home with alternative spaces and galleries and community arts centers and museums, where it has developed specifically-targeted programs for urban audiences as well as family-oriented events.Rainforest_Installation.htmlConcerts_Lecture_demos.htmlConcerts_Lecture_demos.htmlConcerts_Lecture_demos.htmlhttp://members.cisbec.net/mclmix/page9.htmlshapeimage_2_link_0shapeimage_2_link_1shapeimage_2_link_2shapeimage_2_link_3shapeimage_2_link_4
