If you catch the 7 p.m. Joo Won Park Indeterminacies show at Zeitgeist, you should have plenty of time to make it to Boheme Collectif at 9 p.m. for Mike Kluge’s latest installment of Future Night, an experimental art and music showcase.

Mike Kluge (my partner for ON/OFF @ Arts & Music @ Wedgewood/Houston) curates a Future Night every other month at Boheme Collectif. The shows feature wonderful bands and amazing interactive art installations. Check the below video to see some of the art featured at the previous Future Night.

Last Friday’s Future Night at Boheme Collectif may not have had as many interactive installations as originally planned (only four of the eight artists I listed here presented), but luckily, what they did have was amazing. I recorded some video of the installations with my Samsung Note phone and compiled it into a YouTube video. Check it out below.

Mike Kluge’s FUTURE NIGHT this Friday at Boheme Collectif promises to the best of the series so far. Of particular interest to Theatre Intangible listeners and Circuit Benders’ Ball fans is the Electric Petting Zoo, an interactive art gallery from Noon to 6pm.

The petting zoo features T.I. participants and Benders’ Ball alums such as Andrew Morrill, Zach Adams, Josh Gumiela, and Morgan Higby-Flowers. Here’s the full list of interactive artist:

  • Zach Adams (CMKT4, Nashville Robotic Philharmonic): Circuit-bent installation.
  • Brains Bayley: Trippy kaleidoscope installation.
  • Tyler Blankenship: Large silver sound-and-light emitting pyramid.
  • Josh Gumiela: Interactive audio/visual install. Mike Kluge says, “Trust me, you will want to see it!”
  • Linda Heck : Something involving mics inserted into stuffed animals.
  • Morgan Higby-Flowers: I’m not sure what he has planned for the installation, but if it’s as half as cool as what he did at Noa Noa Experimental Series #2, then I’m sold.
  • Andrew Morrill (Brain Lesion): Noise circuits.
  • Russ White: Reactive sound-and-color organ.

At 8pm the music begins, featuring Sacramento, California band Pregnant. This band is doing extremely innovative things under the guise of pop music, and I can’t wait to see them live. Check out their video below. They remind me a bit of Bird NamestUnE-yArDs, and Solex.

Also on the bill is the aforementioned Morgan Higby-Flowers and master DJ / friend of Theatre Intangible Quiet Entertainer.
