Holiday Remix: Plugging in the Messiah

Nominated for Classical:Next’s 2017 Innovation Award, the third iteration of Soundstreams’ Electric Messiah reshapes Handel’s holiday classic to create a strikingly modern and immersive experience (Hallelujah!). Featuring insights from turntablist SlowPitchSound and music director Adam Scime, hear a musical exploration of holiday traditions and what they mean to us today.

In a special performance audience members offered up their favourite holiday records for SlowPitchSound to spin and scratch. Listen to the podcast of the event and learn the tools SlowPitchSound uses, how Electric Messiah is remixed every year, and discover a whole new way to roast chestnuts!
