Through a serendipitous string of events, Pacific Northwest-based Redefine Magazine was invited to curate an official showcase for 2011's Northside Festival in Brooklyn, New York. This showcase will mark Redefine's second event in the past year, following a wildly successful two-stage unofficial house party at SXSW (RECAP).

Practical Alchemy finds Redefine on the East Coast for the first time. The showcase, to take place at Shea Stadium, will bring a varied and unlikely collection of performers to the well-known DIY venue.

Headliners Lucky Dragons will execute their standard goals of creating positive shared spaces which encourage crowd participation and collaborative music-making; Wires Under Tension will engage the audience with their blend of electronic and classical music, while premiering video art crafted by UK artist Peter Liversidge. Philadelphia's RYAT and Brooklyn's Big Spider's Back will contribute heavily electronic sets with live processed video art, and experimental composer duYun will bring the lineup full circle with her avant-garde and classical bent. Additional details and videos for each of the performers can be seen below.

Practical Alchemy will not only attempt to unify sound and motion art, but all-ages crowds and mature audiences as well, while exploring how far a lineup can stretch stylistically while still feeling cohesive.
