Free for members

Machine Project is participating in Berkeley Art Museum’s L@TE program; a friday night series of music, art, performance, and lectures.

You can swing by, grab a drink, sit on a giant orange bleacherthing designed by Thom Faulders, and check out our events.

Glass Music explores the interior space of the Berkeley Art Museum both aurally and visually. Placing performers throughout the museum’s main space the sounds of the wine glasses will sway and flow through the space, while the performers are guided by abstract visual sheet music created using the lines of the interior architecture.

Jason Brown examines mythology as a hegemonic “interface” into otherwise incomprehensibly complex socio-cultural systems, and discusses the possibility — metaphorical and literal — of a noospheric emergent form beyond the realm of direct human perception, using humanity itself as substrate and system. What is the nature of transcendence when it is itself comprised of immanence? How can there be communication between systems of such vastly incompatible magnitude? And why was Jesus such a douchebag?

Colin Dickey discusses the death of Saint Teresa of Avila, the Phantom Time Hypothesis and the New Chronology, centuries of senseless bloodshed and terrible machines of death designed to bring ever-lasting peace. Also, how long before that Messiah’s corpse spoils in this humidity?
