The Stuff That Dreams Are Made Into 

Wednesday, Jan 11 2012
There’s the one where you’re drowning, or the one where you’re being chased down the endless hallway. Then there’s falling, which is terrifying right up until you’re startled awake in the same chair you fell asleep in a few hours before. At “We Dream in the Daytime Too,” all of that emotion and symbolism that the conscious mind doesn’t process from world of dreams is dredged up by 17 visual artists who have crafted works inspired by the true experiences submitted by more than 50 people from across the U.S. The idea behind it is that we can live fuller lives through a conscious understanding of those unconscious messages our brains transmit in sleep. The exhibition also features interactive digital dream interpretation, compendium publication of dreams and the work they inspired, and even dream-inspired food.

    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.'"
