On a DJ mixer, the crossfader allows for seamless transition between two separate pieces of music. Explore this master control for merging sound: its technical history, its role in shaping hip-hop, and its potential as a new metaphor for the "mixing" we all do in our increasingly diverse world. Combining an academic lecture with a live DJ performance, this session considers how, in the age of the crossfade, we all live in the mix.
