    Nite Bjuti

    Nite Bjuti is an improvising Afro-Caribbean trio tapping electronics, vocalism, bass, Haitian drum rhythms, sampling, and spoken word to create a sound that is “one of the most exciting and original I’ve heard this year” (BBC). The trio will also lead an interactive conversation on archives, sonic storytelling, and collaboration following their performance.

    Presented as part of an artist residency with the Black Studies Collaboratory, housed in the Department of African American Studies

    Modest Livelihood with Live Score

    A screening of the silent film Modest Livelihood, by Duane Linklater and Brian Jungen, is accompanied by a new score performed by a trio of local musicians. The score is written by eagles with eyes closed, a musical project consisting of Duane Linklater and Tobias Linklater, exploring the generative experience of watching films together as intergenerational collaborators, father and son, and two Indigenous artists.

    Presented in conjunction with the exhibition Duane Linklater: mymothersside
