AnimaSonic Productions and RAworx Creative has supported and promoted the electronically activated creatives in the Austin and national music scene since 2010. Starting with small venues, finally landing at The Badlands Club (2012-2017) with the Active Radical Thought showcases (2014-2016). AnimaSonic was able to feature the wide range of diverse and eclectic styles. With the first Resistor event in 2017, AnimaSonic created an event that could merge all the aspects of technologically enhanced music and art.
The first Resistor was held at Austin’s Vortex Theater and featured 12 hours of electronic musical performance and art, organized Ricardo Acevedo and Me Mer Mo’s Melissa Seely. Over 20 different musicians and artists came together to showcase a range of audio and visual experiences. This one-day event was a cultural and financial success for both the venue and AnimaSonic. Additional Resistor events were held the following year at Hive Mind Salon.
As Austin’s electronic and experimental music scene continues to grow and flourish, AnimaSonic believes the time has come to create a bigger, more encompassing event that would perfectly fit into the world of both artist and tech creator.
Resistor II in 2020 will provide a community event that merges fans and enthusiasts, artists and makers, and music and technology for a one-day event like no other.
Resistor II will have two stages of electronic musical performances running during the daytime, a tech and label vendor room, workshops, demonstrations, informative discussions, and an evening celebration of highly regarded electronic musicians and visual artists that will bring it all together.
AnimaSonic joins forces with Me-Mer-Mo Monday, Delptronics, Heterodox Records, Switched On Music, and many others to bring this vision to life.
