Pastries, Pyramids, Promenading & Percussion: a journey toward alchemistical experiences as creative spirit a.k.a.: SYNKHRA, goddess of music & pie a.k.a.: some sort of hyper-detailed space-age mythology, full of fiber-swallowing girls and sun-kissed divorcees reminding everyone of their mortality
Mixan, Coley Marie

A thesis project employing digital video and sound to expose the ongoing intensities and ruptures experienced in Coley Mixan’s voice and body as a means to dispute (and parody) HER/their culture’s dominant norms and power structures. Mixan believes the acts of gender and sexually ‘coded’ norms run parallel to the phenomenon of signal disruption in digital media so the artist exaggerates glitches, errors and dramatics HER/their artwork as a metaphor for difference and anxiety felt continuously within HER/their body and mind [[(as a queer person)]]--exposing the flaws of identity compression that occur within American culture. A spiritual twist of sacred sound is added. And, of course, the journey toward completing the infinity of pie (homemade with Love and veganism). SUPPLEMENTARY FILES: a mixtape of music that inspires Mixan’s scores and an album composed, performed and lyric-written by Coley Mixan.
