TECHNOSELF with Deantoni Parks

Presented by AIR Serenbe, ArtsATL, and Atlanta Science Festival

Get your tickets HERE
$10 General Admission

 

Critically acclaimed drummer Deantoni Parks will present a special performance and conversation that explores the balancing of technology and self. Parks will explore how musicians augment their natural talents with technology, harnessing its powers to fuel their own vision. According to Parks, “The relationship between music and technology is always evolving, but true music cannot exist without a soul.” From this philosophical starting point, Parks will engage with a live audience to seek out where an equilibrium between human expression and machine meticulousness lie.

Deantoni Parks, one of the top drummers working today, displays through his work a sleek and intuitive balance between raw rhythmic physicality and machine-like precision. arks tours internationally, and his talent have led him to collaborations with John Cale, Sade, the Mars Volta and Flying Lotus as well as teaching at the Berklee College of Music.

Parks is one of 2018's artists-in-residence with the Transient Project Residency at AIR Serenbe. Transient is a collaboration between AIR Serenbe and ArtsATL that celebrates touring musicians and composers and invests in their exploring of new directions.

"B-girls and Bombshells: The Other 1950s Women"

The iconic 1950s images of women baking, vacuuming in pearls, and staying home to raise children form a persistent, if incomplete, depiction of the era. Alongside the growth of the suburbs and the nuclear family developed a vibrant commercial sex market that included prostitution and Playboy.
