Workshop: Analog Video Processing with Sean Russell Hallowell // On breadboards and with basic electronic components, we will learn how to process analog video signals and display the results on cathode-ray tube televisions. Using sources like VCRs and old security cameras, we will learn the basic architecture of the analog video signal, how it differs from digital video, and how to manipulate that architecture in artistic ways. We will also learn through doing by exploring the basics of electronic signal flow in collaborative exercises.

The Alaya Project is the essential bridge between the intricate Carnatic style of Indian classical music and contemporary jazz and funk. Born in the cultural bastion of Oakland, California, The Alaya Project explores new textures and perspectives built over two decades of friendship, dialogue, and musical immersion across genres and continents. The driving hybrid kit grooves of Indian percussionist and drummer, Rohan Krishnamurthy, the soulful Ragas and melodies of Prasant Radhakrishnan on saxophone, and the harmonic bedrock of Colin Hogan embodies the permanence of a changing soundscape.

Bala Raghavan: At Odds With Even Love + Roco Córdova // At Odds With Even Love is an evening of poetry and prose: the amorous song of the courtesan and queer stories from the Indian Subcontinent. This labor of love, shared in an intimate gathering, juxtaposes amorous songs from the Indian musical tradition and stories of love, longing, passion, and pain from the queer community.
