Eenie Meenie Records presents Dimension Mixer: An Evening with Dimension Mix, a multi-media event celebrating the release of Dimension Mix. The evening will feature an introduction by Dimension Mix producer Ross Harris, audience participation activities with Esther Nelson, DJing by Peanut Butter Wolf, a musical performance by Anubian Lights, and a screening of “Haack: King of Techno.”
Dimension Mixer: An Evening with Dimension Mix celebrates a musical accomplishment seven years in the making. In 1998, Harris decided to produce a tribute album to the Dimension 5 Records for Children, a label created by Bruce Haack and Esther Nelson in the 1960s to educate and entertain children. After years of setbacks and detours, the album was finally released on August 23rd, 2005 with a tracklist full of both major label artists and obscure contributors alike (Beck, Stereolab, Eels, Money Marks, Oranger and more).
One of the founders of Dimension 5 Records, Esther Nelson, will be attending Dimension Mixer: An Evening with Dimension Mix and introducing some of the concepts and exercises that created the foundation of Dimension 5 Records. In addition to Nelson, Dimension Mix contributors Peanut Butter Wolf and Anubian Lights are scheduled to perform. The evening will close with a screening of, “Haack: King of Techno”, a documentary about Dimension 5 co-founder, Bruce Haack. Haack was a composer and pioneer in electronic music, dating back to the 50s. His ideas and innovations continue to reverberate throughout the music world thanks to the Dimension 5 catalog, “Haack: King of Techno,” and now, Dimension Mix.
