The Other Night School: Reading Behind the Lines (and Spaces)

Dr. Josh Byrd, Associate Prof. of Music, University of West Georgia

Music is much more than notes on a page. But how do performers read beyond the notation? What makes one interpretation different from the next? This session will reveal what lies behind the lines.

RSVP HERE!

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.

An Evening with Deantoni Parks & Nelson Patton

Presented by AIR Serenbe and Grocery on Home

DOORS AT 7PM
SHOW AT 8PM

$10 Advance General Admission
$12 General Admission Door

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.
