May Shows for L@TE: Friday Nights

This Friday, the L@TE: Friday Nights program at the Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive (BAM/PFA) will be concluding its current season with three upcoming shows for the month of May.

This week is the Del Sol String Quartet, who is making their return to BAM/PFA, for a performance of a recent work by Professor Ken Ueno, which will incorporate throat singing, and pieces from Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Caroline Shaw and acclaimed Australian composer Peter Sculthorpe.

Then on the following week, BAM/PFA presents Returning Current with Daniela Gesundheit and Katy Payne. In this program, there will be teachings of the principles, structures, and techniques of humpback whale song through several group sound experiments, including deep listening exercises with audio recordings, and analyzing spectrograms of whale-song through a musical.

Finally, the current season of L@TE: Friday Nights concludes with the Possible Closing Ceremony. As this exhibition now currently on view is set to draw to a close on May 25th, BAM/PFA draws together artists from all points of the Bay Area for one final celebration. Included in this event are students carrying in the harvest from the Edible Schoolyard, as well as songs, dancing and a orchestrated production of the Possible artist book, and a presentation of honor-objects to those who make the exhibition actual.

Just a reminder, there will only be limited seating at the three upcoming events. And as usual, the events are seven dollars, and begins at 7pm, with doors opening at 5pm, followed by a DJ at 6:30pm.
