As a symbolic artist of experimental and conceptual techno music, and as a person fascinated by sci-fi movies, Jeff Mills is driven by the urge to "create and dedicate his own work for films and videos". In 2000 he coined the style ”Cinemix".
“THE TRIP” is a live mix of sound and images, with the visuals being extracted from over 60 old sci-fi movies from 1920 - 1970. The visual mix depicts what human beings will experience when we venture out to explore distant places, far from the earth, in order to find a new home due to Earth becoming a difficult place to live. The 1.5 hour performance and collaboration with COSMIC LAB was a psychologically intense audio-visual experience that took the audience on a journey to unknown space and time, evoking feelings of beauty found in rythm and awe-inspiring chaos.
