Wading Into the Deep End 

Wednesday, Apr 24 2013
Is it true that neurological conditions like depression, anxiety, dementia, and schizophrenia can heighten people’s creativity and contribute to their artistic output? The Bay Area Art and Science Interdisciplinary Collaborative Sessions is presenting a program that will explore the interactions between art and diverse neurological conditions. Hear from a photographer father who collaborates artistically with his autistic son, and from an artist who works with developmentally disabled individuals to help them pursue creative careers. Katherine Sherwood will be speaking about how a cerebral hemorrhage changed her art, and UC Berkeley Professor Walter J. Freeman, M.D., will speak on how “brain chaos” surmounts challenges. Live music from Bay Area cellist Hannah Addario-Berry will help explore the intersection of art and psychology.

    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.'"
