The Other Night School: “Life After Carbon”

Dr. Hannes Gerhardt, professor of geosciences, University of West Georgia

As the inconvenient truth of global climate change settles into our consciousness, we are often left with a sense of cynicism in the face of the apparent intractability of our energy-driven carbon dependencies. Yet is our failure to imagine a paradigmatic shift to a new, sustainable energy system justified? Let’s take a journey into possible worlds to come--rooted in efforts and innovations in the here and now--where energy is abundant, affordable, and carbon-neutral.

The Other Night School: CRAZED FOR SPAIN: HOLLYWOOD’S LOVE AFFAIR WITH “LO ESPAÑOL”

Dr. Jeffrey Zamostny, assoc. professor of Spanish

The cinema was born in the same decade as both the Spanish-American War of 1898 and a vogue in the U.S. for all things stereotypically Spanish. Over the next thirty years, Hollywood churned out dozens of films featuring matadors, gypsies, bandits, and flamenco dancers played by the likes of Rudolph Valentino and Greta Garbo. Join us as we explore how Spaniards promoted and resisted Hollywood’s Spanish fetish, both at home in Spain and in the U.S.

The Other Night School: Life on the Moon in the 1830s

Mark Schoon, Associate Prof. of Art, University of West Georgia

For centuries the moon had remained an unattainable subject of speculation and desire. Through a series of illustrated newspaper articles in 1835, however, much of this speculation was to be set straight, as claims of exotic landscapes, flora, and fauna were attributed to the famed astronomer Sir John Herchel. Join us for a look at this and other instances when scientific representation competes with our desires and basic reasoning.

Presented by AIR Serenbe and Grocery on Home

DOORS AT 7PM
SHOW AT 8PM

BUY YOUR TICKETS HERE

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.

Nelson Patton is an experimental duo of looped trombone (Dave Nelson) and drums & Moog bass pedals (Marlon Patton). The result is a sound that is greater than the sum of its parts as the two musicians continue to layer and develop motifs into elaborate textures and interlocking grooves. Nelson Patton's full-length debut was recorded in Dave's personal studio in upstate New York over three days and features Lonnie Holley on vocals. The eleven songs on the album, edited from dozens of improvised pieces, reflect the spirit of their expansive live shows.

Deantoni Parks and Nelson Patton are former artists-in-residence with the Transient Project Residency at AIR Serenbe. Transient celebrates touring musicians and composers and invests in their exploring of new directions.
