Mercury Soul launches Mercury Soul: Cathedral
Mercury Soul: Cathedral is a 4-part miniseries of meditative music and electronica that showcases a vibrant new way of presenting live music digitally. Filmed in the sumptuous Saint Joseph’s Arts Society in San Francisco, the series features the seamless alternation between classical music and DJing for which Mercury Soul has become known.
Each 14-minute episode presents short performances of solo and chamber music showcasing a rich diversity of music and performers, ranging from JS Bach to Claude Debussy to Indian and Chinese folk music. Music of modern and living composers Anna Clyne, Johann Johannsson, and Dale Trumbore are featured prominently, and each episode opens with DJ Masonic (Mason Bates) performing a new work composed especially for the series.
Mercury Soul is a San Francisco-based organization that produces club shows integrating progressive DJs, classical music, and immersive production. Anchored by its San Francisco series at clubs such as Great Northern and DNA Lounge, Mercury Soul also produces events around the country with organizations such as the Chicago Symphony and the New World Symphony. The organization also serves as production consultant to organizations seeking creative digital ways to present music in spectacular surroundings.
