TECHNOSELF with Deantoni Parks

  • Red Light Cafe 553-1 Amsterdam Avenue Northeast Atlanta, GA, 30306 United States (map)

Presented by AIR Serenbe, ArtsATL, and Atlanta Science Festival

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 lies.

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. Parks 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.
