Pather Panchali Sunday, Monochrome Monday
TABLACENTRIC, Robin Sukhadiaâ€™s Artist Residency at Machine Project, continues with a special film screening on Sunday, March 16, 2008, at 4pm of Satyajit Rayâ€™s masterpiece, Pathar Panchali. The film features classical north Indian music scored by Ravi Shankar. Free admission.
â€œThe first film by the masterly Satyajit Ray – possibly the most unembarrassed and natural of directors – is a quiet reverie about the life of an impoverished Brahman family in a Bengali village. Beautiful, sometimes funny, and full of love, it brought a new vision of India to the screen.â€

The Innermost Unifier: Today itâ€™s the Corporate Anthem
Monday March 17, 2008
A talk/audio performance by Johannes Grenzfurthner (monochrom)
When we last saw Johannes, he and his co-cospirators from Monochrom were boiling down sixty gallons of coca cola to make a real life brick of coke, and burying people alive in our backyard. For this event, Johannes will give a theoretical and applied overview on the musical genre of corporate anthems using both historical and current examples (especially from the area of the hardware/software-industry)
Come and sing along. Powernapping is welcome, too.
