"...The Mosaic Sound Collective, a DIY music co-op and creative space conceived by Residual Kid parent Dan Redman, continues to pick up steam as a destination for Austin music businesses (see "Mayor’s Omnibus Resolution: Actualization Is Hard," Feb. 24)...."
"...Peelander-Z at Mosaic Sound Collective..."
"...Levitation canceled, C3 Presents made good by relocating champions of the defunct, Baltimore’s Animal Collective, to Emo’s on Saturday night. Forever an act people love to love/knee-jerk hate/discuss/love again, the quartet (minus Josh Dibb, and plus drummer Jeremy Hyman) worked over supersized cuts from Painting Over to great effect...."
"...From outside, the Mosaic Sound Collective doesn't inspire a lot of confidence. The white concrete bunker just east of 183 on MLK once served as a convalescent home and juvenile detention facility..."
"...Today we introduce the latest, and most ambitious, music industry unifier. Mosaic Sound Collective aims to consolidate resources and services musicians need under one roof and make it affordable through a cooperative model..."
"...On Monday, April 2, the Austin Music Commission unanimously passed a resolution asking City Council for $15 million in bond funding to purchase land and develop a music hub envisioned as an epicenter for entrepreneurship and professional development in the local music industry. The recommendation, motioned by Gavin Garcia, gave examples of existing hubs and co-ops nationally, but made no mention of one existing in our city: Mosaic Sound Collective, which is in a crucial state of development and deserves city support...."
"...The Microsessions model is actually fun as hell: Audiences get divided into four groups that rotate through four listening rooms where four artists play 15-minute sets – followed by a choose-your-own encore. Last Saturday's edition at Mosaic Sound Collective on the Eastside tallied 170 attendees, the monthly event's biggest night since founding in 2016...."
"...Moreover, the clock was running down on the Off Center, the Eastside space managed for 17 years by the Rude Mechs, who made it available to numerous other groups. In June, the nationally renowned theatre collective will be homeless and another of the most used arts venues in town will be gone..."
"...Also among the mayor's music-boosting concepts: the creation of "hubs," where various industry resources and services exist under one roof, encouraging collaboration. On Friday, instead of staying dedicated to city-sponsored efforts, Adler publicly endorsed a private sector project, Mosaic Sound Collective, calling it "a model for the kind of things this resolution could achieve."..."

"...5) Speaking of bloody things, how about a little early Halloween for you this summer? Last year’s popular Fright Gallery from Blood Over Texas returns (as Fright Gallery 2, of course) with its one-day festival of fears: featuring the work of more than 30 horror artists, tempting your wallet with a rogue’s gallery of gruemongers, and looming sonically with the ominous and string-sizzling atmospherics of that Blood Over Texas Horror Chamber Orchestra – this Saturday night at Mosaic Sound Collective.Jason Vines, where you at?..."
"...Congress), then seven acts play Barracuda tonight. Saturday brings a zine and art show to Mosaic Sound Collective from 1-5pm followed by another night bill at Barracuda..."
"...Their words provide the background for the outtakes from tracking sessions. Being able to hear Brian and the musicians struggle to perfect the bridge in "God Only Knows" clearly illustrates a collective zeal to create something revolutionary and transcendent..."
"...IX. Nick Barbaro: "Thirty-five years ago this summer, on what may have been July 9, The Austin Chronicle moved into our first office, sharing space with the sorta-famous art collective known as Sheauxnough Studios...."
"...14, Hideout, 12mid Austin's tiny orchestra has been on the road since fall, but not in the traditional sense. The collective or local classicists wrote and performed live backing for Petra and the Wolf, an update of the play..."
"...Select labels will also be excavating rarities, and Richard Lynn promises Super Secret Records T-shirt giveaways. For Chris Dock Davis, president of spirited art collective Raw Paw, the market is an opportunity to share inspiration with fellow musicmakers...."
"..."Through the Club Foot era, Frank and Andy Blackwood, Paul Sabal, and another fellow started the Artmaggots [a poster artist collective], and they were doing a similar thing to what we had done with the Armadillo a decade before...."
"...1952 was the year that Herman "Sonny" Blount denounced his birth name and emerged Le Sony'r Ra, a name that soon molded into Sun Ra. The spiritual awakening that led to his name change also kick-started the Arkestra, Ra's ever-experimenting jazz collective also known as the Solar Myth Arkestra and His Cosmo Discipline Arkestra..."
