Warfield Theater in San Fran with Joanna Newsom and Philip Glass!
Sometimes, getting out of bed aint that easy…
I’m not the biggest fan of Phillip Glass, but this short film by Tim Fain and Benjamin Millepied is making me change my mind.
World’s Only is so very very close to being completed now! Keep the 2nd of May free for our launch party in Sydney.
Sometimes, it’s hard to find anything to do in Macon. This week is not one of those times.
African American Voices at the Museum of Arts and Sciences and the Freddie Styles Exhibit at the Tubman Museum. Also, the Opening Arts exhibits from First Friday at the Gallery of the Macon Arts Alliance and The Gallery of The 567 are still going on.
Music will fill the week. Thursday, Rubblebucket will headline the Cox Capitol Theatre with JuBee and the Morning After (local band whose performance in Seattle was broadcast on Jimmie Kimmel Live), Baby Baby, and Triathalon. Saint Francis takes a break from recording in Nashville and heads home to the Hummingbird Stage and Taproom Friday night. Louise Warren, an up and coming singer/songwriter, will be opening for them. Tokyo Spa, local cover band, will round out the weekend at the Hummingbird Stage and Taproom.
Hip Hop, Rock and Alt Country are not the only music on display. You’ll can also experience culture. Make it to the Douglass Theatre at 1pm on Saturday and you’ll get to catch the final in the Wagner four-parter The Ring, Gotterdammerung, streaming live from the Metropolitan Opera.
Robert McDuffie, who lent his musical skills to the A Little More Soul video for Gateway Macon, will be playing at Mercer University on Saturday at 7:30pm. Students and faculty from the Center for Strings will join the Center’s founder in an evening of Vivaldi, Glass, Bach, Mozart, and a few surprises!
Also, Wednesday, Macon Arts Alliance in connection with the Macon Concert Association presents a preview of violinist’s Tim Fain’s Portals, Wednesday at 5pm at the Gallery of the Macon Arts Alliance. Portals (www.portalsproject.com) is an interactive experience combining film, dance, and spoken word with multimedia elements.
These are just a few of the things going on this week. What are your plans for this week?
I went to Symphony Space to see Portals: A Multi-Media Exploration of Longing in the Digital Age, featuring Tim Fain on violin, choreography by Benjamin Millepied, poetry by Leonard Cohen, and a brand new set of violin sonatas by Philip Glass. I mean, the brilliance was just through the roof.
Violinist Tim Fain is a rising star in the classical music world and has appeared at concert halls around the world. But right now, the violinist is enjoying some newfound cinematic exposure thanks to his appearance in Darren Aronofsky’s “Black Swan.” Fain appears onscreen as the soloist who accompanies Natalie Portman in several ballet sequences. His left hand even gets an extended close-up shot as he performs selections from Tchaikovsky’s “Swan Lake,” the ballet that serves as the film’s metaphorical backbone.
