Mellotron Variations is a retrocool and immersive celebration of the electro-mechanical plastic instrument that is as fun to play as it is to listen to — with an amazing creative quartet of Pat Sansone (Wilco), John Medeski (Medeski, Martin and Wood), Robby Grant (Big Ass Truck; Vending Machine) and Jonathan Kirkscey (Memphis Symphony Orchestra; Mouse Rocket — and composer for the Mr. Rogers movie: Won’t You Be My Neighbor). Join these influential and Mellotron-obsessed musicians in a visual installation that evokes beautifully trippy light shows, as they make musical magic with four Mellotrons -- polyphonic tape replay keyboards originally developed and built in 1963.
