Ever wondered what it'd be like to attend a soil science convention? We're not sure we'd make it past the dreary continental breakfast. Nonetheless, we're excited about Symphony of the Soil, a new multi-film project by Deborah Koons Garcia, maker of the excellent The Future of Food. This documentary features a large number of soil scientists chopping it up over our understanding of the resource to which they have dedicated their professional lives. Garcia will be screening highlights of her work-in-progress at this year's Hans Jenny Memorial Lecture. In case you were wondering, a panel discussion of preeminent Berkeley academics will follow the viewing. Hope you have a scone handy.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
