Space IS the Place, and that is where Movie Loft and Shadowbox Studio are heading in May. Two days on the heels of Sun Ra's 104th birthday, celebrate & journey with us into the gloriously weird cosmos.

From 1974, Space is the Place is an Afrofuturist sci-fi apocalyptic free-jazz excursion, where Sun Ra & his Arkestra return to earth on a music-fueled spaceship to battle for the future of the black race. With wild costumes, a pimp Overseer, Oakland locations, NASA and amazing music, this is a scene like no other!

There will be lots of Sun Ra records spinning starting at 7, along with hot dogs on the grill.

Talk and a performance, led by Arkestra member Ken Moshesh at 8.

Movie takes off around 8:30, more spaceway record sounds following.

Free, donations appreciated. BYO or sample what's on-hand!

Innovative St. John's multi-instrumentalist Rozalind MacPhail blends effected flute, electronics, voice, omnichord, field recordings and silent film through Ableton Live.

FROM THE RIVER TO THE OCEAN, created during a
Cucalorus Artist Residency in 2014, features MacPhail performing live score to six short silent films shot in Wilmington, NC. Animating the films into one fluid narrative journey, MacPhail’s original music score combines multi-layered sound looping, traditional songwriting, field recordings and loads of flute.

“It‘s easy to fall for the eclectic sounds of this creative mastermind, and you will probably get lost in your imagination while falling.“ (Rock Eden Magazine)

“Uplifting melodies and dance-inducing grooves. MacPhail is forging new territory for musicians everywhere.” (The Flute Examiner)

“An artistry that is both visionary and innovative.” (The Flute View)

Free admission, BYOB or sample what's on-hand.
