"To save the planet, I had to go to the worst spot on Earth, and that was Philadelphia, which was death's headquarters." -Sun Ra

Please join Ars Nova Workshop and ICA for two very special performances in conjunction with "Pathways to Unknown Worlds," just prior to the closing of the exhibition. An expanded 12-member Sonic Liberation Front, the Philadelphia ensemble acclaimed for their iconoclastic combination of Free Jazz passion and Afro-Cuban percussion, will premiere Jetway Confidential No.3 (for Sun Ra), a new composition dedicated to Sun Ra and commissioned specifically for this performance, and perform an arrangement of Sun Ra's Where Pathways Meet from 1978's Lanquidity recording, which featured saxophonist and SLF member Julian Pressley.

In addition, Arkestra archival films will be projected on the gallery walls. Join us early for drinks!

Planet Y
Yanni Papadopoulos, dg-20 Casio digital guitar
Charles Cohen, Buchla Music Easel

This event will also feature a very rare appearance from Planet Y, featuring Buchla Music Easel master Charles Cohen and Stinking Lizaveta’s Yanni Papadopoulos, best described as "Subotnick meets Sun Ra meets Schnitzler.”
