Cicada Cinema and Landlocked Music are excited to present:

A Cosmic and Earthly History of Recorded Music According to Mississippi Records: A Film & Talk Presentation

A mix of film, audio, slides and lecture presented by Mississippi Records founder Eric Isaacson. This presentation attempts to tell the entire history of recorded music in 90 minutes — from the first star being born to the current age of bizarre technology.
Subjects covered will include the cosmic patterns that resemble music generated by stars being born and dying, the untold early history of recording technology, the rise of blues, rock and roll, and other revolutionary American music forms and their subsequent destruction by the powers that be, and some hopeful messages about the future.

Mississippi Records is a store and label based in Portland, Oregon. They’ve released over 240 records spanning nearly every genre of music, ran a store for 15 years, and traveled the world with presentations such as this one. All of this has been done with no online presence, no promotion or advertising of any kind anywhere and no general existence in the digital world!

When Dr. Dave Bowman (Keir Dullea) and other astronauts are sent on a mysterious mission, their ship’s computer system, HAL, begins to display increasingly strange behavior, leading up to a tense showdown between man and machine that results in a mind-bending trek through space and time.

2001: A Space Odyssey, produced and directed by Stanley Kubrick, was nominated for four Academy Awards and won for Best Visual Effects.

Rough and Unequal

12:00 pm to 04:00 pm on Oct 4
Grunwald Gallery of Art
https://soaad.indiana.edu/creative-activity/grunwald-gallery/exhibitions/index.html

The Grunwald Gallery and Black Film Center/Archive are pleased to present Rough and Unequal, a film by Kevin Jerome Everson. The film will be exhibited in the Grunwald Gallery as the centerpiece for a symposium featuring the filmmaker in collaboration with IU Faculty, students and Indianapolis Museum of Art at Newfields Associate Curator of American Art Dr. Kelli Morgan.

This installation expands the Black Film Center/Archive’s exploration of the reverberations between the genre of nonconformist filmmaking known as “the avant-garde” and the parallel insurgent cinemas of the African Diaspora. The screening of Rough and Unequal in an art gallery setting is consistent with previous screenings, providing a contemplative space for the 11-minute silent film. The presentation of the film in this setting, where the public will be able to revisit the film over a period of time, will provide a viewing experience very different than one that can be provided in the cinema. Placing Everson’s film in an art gallery context draws attention to the visual aspects of the film and creates the connection to visual art.
