Witching Hour

This year, the Witching Hour Festival—an exploration of the creative process and celebration of new work—returns in person with an exciting premiere. Iowa City’s own Curious Records has chosen Witching Hour for the inaugural installation of Moebius Strips, a sonic sculpture that will take over the stage at the Englert Theatre for the duration of the fest. Electronic artist Tim Story spearheaded the project, which features electronic artists from around the world paying tribute to the influential Dieter Moebius. Along with the music, Witching Hour as always features conversation and community building, kicking things off on Friday with a chat between Story and Lauren Lessing, Director of the University of Iowa Stanley Museum of Art, exploring the liminal space between music and art exhibition which the Moebius Strips installation walks.
