6:00PM  ENTERTAINING SCIENCE -- IMAGINE SCIENCE IN FILM
Roald Hoffmann


IMAGINE SCIENCE IN FILM

Einstein said "Imagination is more important than knowledge". Tonight, a collection of short films curated by Alexis Gambis and Imagine Science Films shows how science can be effectively incorporated in credible yet compelling fashion into fictional narrative filmmaking. In comedy, drama, intrigue, mystery, animation, these films take a shot at bringing science to the public through visual storytelling. We follow the late evening romance of a scientist with a Petri Dish girl, delve into the complexities of relationships as a beautiful woman falls for an architect who suffers from face blindness, cry with a girl who fights cancer with the help of her intergalactic superheroine alter ego, and chuckle at the comedy improv of a global warming scientist matching wits with some witless senators at a madcap hearing on coral bleaching.

Jacob Sacks, piano;  Rob Mosher, saxophone;  Eivind Opsvik, bass;  Kevin Brow, drums & compositions
Kevin Brow's Koptor image
Kevin Brow – Koptor
New York City Debut
Presenting music from their new debut album Release on Fresh Sound New Talent Records

“Convincingly hip thoughtfully astute, the music is the sound of modern jazz without its constraints.” – Mark F. Turner, All About Jazz, New York http://www.allaboutjazz.com/php/article.php?id=29848

“An impressive debut from an up and coming artist, Koptor is deceptive in its simplicity as it reveals myriad layers during repeated listens.”
-Troy Collins, All About Jazz, New York http://www.allaboutjazz.com/php/article.php?id=30016

"An exciting new name - Brow and the strong band members provide the music with wings which comes fully up to fly”.
- Niels Overgaard, Jazznyt, Denmark http://jazznyt.blogspot.com/2008/06/canadisk-eksil-trommeslager-kevin-brow.html

Koptor’s debut self-titled album (fresh sound records) has established them as one of the most interesting new jazz bands in Canada and one that is quickly becoming known on both sides of the Atlantic. The album features all original compositions by Brow. The music is built upon openness, lyrical melodies, twisting grooves and improvisations that are propelled by Brow’s lyrical drumming and the fiery playing of three of New York’s most in demand young jazz musicians: Jacob Sacks-piano (us) Eivind Opsvik-bass (us) Rob Mosher-sax/english horn (ca/us)

Upon listening to Koptor one can get a sense of the known, unknown and the unexpected. The listener is both pulled in and challenged by a blend of simplicity and complexity that flows in a cascading and fluid nature. Koptor’s music blurs the boundaries of genres and utilizes dual parameters. This means that the music is structured by the attraction of opposites, so that the music is both melodic yet atonal, form based yet freely improvised, technically demanding yet minimalistic.

“Koptor” is a name that represents the three cities Toronto, Copenhagen and New York that Brow has lived in during five of his most significant years of musical development. As well, it represents the many amazing musicians he has worked and studied with and the cultures within these cities that have inspired and shaped his musical approach.

Wednesday Nov 05 6:00PM  FREE RANGE READINGS
Mira Ptacin, host

Melissa Seley Andrew Jackson Lauren Seidman Ben Greenman
Creative non-fiction series.

Ben Greenman is an editor at the New Yorker and author of several books of fiction, including Superbad, Superworse, and A Circle is a Balloon and Compass Both: Stories About Human Love. His writing has appeared in numerous publications, including the New York Times, the Washington Post, the Paris Review, Zoetrope: All Story, McSweeneys, and Opium.

**Freerange is a method of literary husbandry where the authors are permitted to write, read, and roam freely instead of being contained in any manner. The principle is to allow the writers as much freedom as possible, to live out their instinctual behaviors in a reasonably natural way, regardless of whether or not they are eventually killed for meat. In practice, there are few regulations imposed on what can be called "free range," and the term may be used misleadingly to imply that the writing product has been produced more humanely than it actually has been.**

Liz Magnes - solo piano image
When Israeli Jazz Pianist Liz Magnes moved to NY, it was an opportunity to further her interest in exploring and presenting jazz in her own unique style which combines Mideastern nuances with western musical ideas. With so much world attention focused on the Mideast, it is timely. Her playing reflects the most profound use of "Taqsim"; the Arabic meaning of improvisation , an immersion of personal and universal emotions. Whether it is a solo program of standards, a duet with a poet, or her own compositions, the gifted Magnes brings a unique performance to her audience.
