Boombayé aka Ali Santana delivers the heat with hard knocking beats and synchronized projections in his debut solo performance. The Brooklyn native rhythmically collages original images and found footage with glitchy loops and abstract Hip Hop instrumentals to create a gritty and compelling experience that he dubs Boom Bap Cinema. Mustapha Abdul-Rahiim and Leo Gibbs, Santana’s partners in the BKLYN!ZULU project, will also perform.
OneBeat, a meeting of 25 global musicians hailing from over 17 countries, closes its month-long U.S. residency and tour with an explosive final show at Murmrr, Brooklyn, in association with the World Music Institute. This one-of-a-kind performance features organic mashups of traditional songs from Mongolia, edgy electronica and intoxicating bass lines from Southern Africa, old-time foot percussion and Afro-Brazilian grooves, in a celebration of how music invigorates our local and global communities.
OneBeat is an initiative of the U.S. State Department’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs in collaboration with the groundbreaking New York-based music organization Bang On A Can’s Found Sound Nation.
Now in its seventh year, OneBeat brings musicians (ages 19-35) from around the world to the U.S. for one month each fall to collaboratively write, produce, and perform original music, and develop strategies for arts-based social engagement. OneBeat begins with an opening residency, when Fellows collaborate to create original material, record new musical ideas, and incubate their projects. OneBeat fellows then go on tour, performing for a wide array of American audiences, collaborating with local musicians, and leading workshops with youth. During the month, each OneBeat musician also sets out their plans for the future, developing projects in their home countries linked to a mutually-reinforcing network of music-driven social enterprises.
OneBeat is a musical journey like no other. It is a chance for adventurous musicians from an incredible diversity of traditions to seek common ground, create new musical combinations, push the boundaries of music technology, and find ways to involve all members of society in the process of musical creativity. OneBeat endeavors to be the nexus of a new way of thinking about how music can help us collectively build healthy communities, prosperous societies, and a more peaceful world. An initiative of the U.S. State Department’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs in collaboration with the groundbreaking New York-based music organization Bang on a Can’s Found Sound Nation, OneBeat employs collaborative original music as a potent new form of cultural diplomacy.
CultureHub's 2018-2019 season kicks off with an evening of technologically informed performances curated by our Resident Artist, Matt Romein.
Indeterminate Forms is a collection of short form live performances that engage with technology, both practically as a medium and conceptually as a means of exploring our relationship to it. By bringing together performances from a variety of different backgrounds and contexts, Indeterminate Forms provides a platform in which technology acts as a through line to examine live performance as the traditional boundaries of music, dance, theater, and media art collapse when juxtaposed with one another.
This season kick-off event will feature BKLYN!ZULU, Fei Liu, Heidi Hörsturz, and Sarah Rothberg presenting works encompassing live video, sound art, and more.
Indeterminate Forms is FREE and open to the public. In the event that CultureHub reaches its capacity, RSVPs will be honored on a first come, first served basis and staff will monitor a waitlist. Donations are accepted for beer and wine.
