This is a new venture for ensemble mise-en, whose programs have typically focused on large ensemble works featuring traditional acoustic media. The small scale of the performing forces needed for the Acoustic+ series’ electronic and multimedia works allows for a great diversity of works on each of the programs rather than being limited to a specific instrumentation or subset of the full ensemble.

Tomorrow Is the Question
Following the idea of a black radical tradition, African and African diasporic futurism refers to practices of technological agency to reimagine the past and enact alternative possible futures in the material world. This convening considers the sonic and spiritual dimensions of futurism throughout modern black culture, reflecting on the challenges and opportunities presented by sound technologies that enable the creation of an alternative tomorrow, real or mythic. Presenters will consider the intersection of sound technology, spirituality, and Africana studies in a wide-ranging discussion tracing relations between colonial legacies, technologies of liberation, and social movements in the modern world.
Alexexander Weheliye, Department of African American Studies, Northwestern University
The discussion will include a sonic performance by Haitian composer, percussionist, and turntablist Val-Inc.
This event is free and open to the public.

“Culturally diverse individual participants’ reaction to sound in an acousmatic space” is the central theme in our integrated audio-visual installation “Play_algorithm.” The project utilizes a wall-to-ceiling projection programmed by Alice Emily Baird and a live percussion and electronic composition by Chatori Shimizu. The space encourages audience participation in which their reactions to the sound directly reflect the real-time visual display.

Hayden Planetarium Programs

Earthquakes happen frequently—but what causes them? Why are they unpredictable? What do they tell us about Earth’s deep interior? Explore these questions with collaborating Earth scientists, astrophysicists, and sound artists as they bring to the Planetarium dome immersive displays of earthquakes through time and also seismic waves moving through and around the planet. Through sight and sound, explore four earthquakes from the last decade, viewed from space and then from deep inside the globe. Experiencing these dramatic events in the Planetarium will transform the way you think about our planet.

Creamcheese: with Luke Dubois & Zach Layton, Brock Monroe & Oneida
ZERO scholar Tiziana Caianiello provides an introduction to Creamcheese (1967–76), a psychedelic discotheque and artists’ meeting place in Düsseldorf. Conceived by ZERO artist Günther Uecker and decorated by other network artists, including Adolf Luther, Heinz Mack, Gerhard Richter, and Daniel Spoerri, it became known for its progressive music as well as its synthesis of art, film, music, and performance. Creamcheese provides the inspiration for an event in the museum’s rotunda following Caianiello’s talk. Developed by R. Luke DuBois and Zach Layton, the playlist features Frank Zappa and The Mothers of Invention, Pink Floyd, Kraftwerk, Tangerine Dream, and others. A special performance by Brooklyn-based psychedelic rock band Oneida with accompanying visual effects by Joshua Light Show artist Brock Monroe will end the evening. Tickets include an exhibition viewing of ZERO: Countdown to Tomorrow, 1950s–60s, and a cash bar will be available.
$25 general, $20 members, $15 students.
