Music of Ghosts Presents: “Séance” A Fishbon Fundraiser and Masquerade Ball


Woman Aerialist suspended from silks.
The ghosts invite you to join us for a special evening, “Séance,” at the Santa Barbara Center for Art, Science, and Technology, on Saturday, November 4th.
 
Doors open at 6:30pm and the show begins promptly at 7pm, so hustle and bustle to ensure you are on time.
A portion of the proceeds benefit Fishbon, a local arts collective supporting STEAM and the creative repertoire.
This is an interactive show presenting beautiful aerial acts to inspire and mystify you with original music by local composer and aerialist Alysia Michelle James.
 

What awaits you

You and your entourage have stumbled upon a peculiar sight as you walk down the cobblestone streets of London in 1892. Enticed by the mysterious being beckoning you into the gates, you follow them into a dimly lit courtyard, where they invite you to hear a story. They have planned a séance for your entertainment and they use the ancient art of the Tarot to resurrect ghosts from beyond the grave who perform daring acts of aerial artistry.
Participants are encouraged to dress for the ambience (gothic Victorian costumes complete with corsets, top hats, pocket watches and kid gloves).

Other Offerings on this Magical Evening

Impromptu aerial performances, DJs Dienasty and SkyPounce hitting the decks, food and drinks available for purchase with valid ID and more.
 
Accords is an art installation exploring cross-sensory perception through smell, taste, sound, and touch. Accords plays with conceptual connections between perfumery and music through mocktails made with the extracts of edible flowers and a musical “tuning” station. First, visitors craft their own floral beverages from a selection of floral waters. Second, visitors are invited to think in a cross-sensory way as they select sonic notes and vibrations to either harmonize or contrast with the components in their drink.
