Berklee student Chelsea Southard will speak about her public art installation, Things/Time, which features "sonic images" displayed in an eight-foot by 12-foot portable storage unit located at 1140 Boylston Street through August 15, 2014.
The "art pod" is part of Southard's final thesis project for her electronic production and design (EPD) major at Berklee and was created in collaboration with Diablo Glass School. The 360-degree sonic images will capture "the ambiances and sourced sounds from the abandoned, unoccupied MBTA tunnels under Tremont Street," according to Southard, whose goal is to bring public awareness to the existence of these spaces.
Southard will give a brief presentation on the piece, and introduce a handful of individuals who were instrumental in its creation. Light refreshments will be served.
Tune in this week on BIRN Alive! to catch a live performance and interview with singer-songwriter Mendeleyev. With a diverse catalogue filled with feverous finger-picking, mellow to manic melodies, and lively, moving lyrical content, he has a fresh and folky yet fun and funky take on music that can be appreciated by all.
Next, on Sunday, July 27 at 3:00 p.m., tune in to BIRN1 for a special live performance from the band Blue Light Bandits.
BIRN Alive! is the BIRN's weekly flagship live music program featuring some of the best touring, local, and Berklee bands.
*Please note: This event is for ages 16 and older.*
If you’ve ever seen Tim and Eric (the duo of Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim) live, you are already aware that these two know how to put on a performance – complete with singing, dancing, and all sorts of other Tim and Eric-isms. If you haven’t experienced the comedic force behind Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job! (and the soon-to-be-unleashed Tim and Eric’s Bedtime Stories) in person, well, you’ve obviously missed out on some key moments in history, but we’ll let that slide for now. Past triumphs aside, no one has seen Tim and Eric with Check It Out’s Dr. Steve Brule live in 2014! As on his program, Check It Out!, where Dr. Steve Brule discovers and shares bits of great knowledge about all areas of life, the good doctor’s live show will educate crowds in a similar fashion. This power trio has put together a show of a lifetime for you and your pep-pep and they’re venturing to pretty much every major city in North America.
Enjoy some important kitchen tips from Tim and Eric in this video:
You cannot challenge something you don't know exists. At a basic level, our work involves helping individuals and organizations to create new lenses, moving from an individual understanding of racism, that is, prejudice and discrimination based on "race," to a systemic understanding. Moving from an individual lens to a systemic one has profound implications for how we understand ourselves, our relationships and our work. We begin to see and understand things we previously didn't know existed.
Discuss racism on an individual and systemic level
Raise awareness and understanding of systemic practices, culture and policies that support the privileged and halt the oppressed
Learn how to address these situations and deconstruct them
