Freedom Tower @MDC

This panel discussion explores how communities in Miami are affected by the interrelated issues of climate, gentrification, and corruption.

World Premiere of VANDAL at Miami Film Festival 2019

Tower Theater

Nick, better known as “Damage” on the streets of Miami, is the young leader of an infamous graffiti crew that leaves its mark wherever it goes. As they grow larger in fame and number, problems start arising–Nick’s personal life goes on a downward spiral; the illegal nature of his passion is bound to get him in trouble with the authorities, and, on top of that, he has to learn to fend off the local rival crew.

A local production shot in Miami’s neighborhoods of Wynwood, Little Havana and Little Haiti, takes the very thrilling world of graffiti art and explores the struggle of street artists to keep their art alive as well as the social backlash that goes hand in hand with pursuing their biggest passion. Director Jose Daniel Freixas, a graffiti artist in his own right since the age of 10, puts his firsthand experience in the world of graffiti to good use by highlighting Miami’s gritty streets as well as its multi-cultural heritage to show a city full of color, life and passion.

Helene Grimaud and Mahler

Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts

Celebrated pianist, human rights activist, wildlife conservationist and author Hélène Grimaud makes her anticipated return to the Adrienne Arsht Center in a one-night-only performance of Maurice Ravel’s jazzy Concerto in G. Its sublime second movement in the hands of Ms. Grimaud is said to make time stand still. Conductor Mark Wigglesworth closes the program with the Fellows in Gustav Mahler’s First Symphony. Mahler famously said, “to create a symphony is, for me, to create a world,” and this world is boldly emblazoned with both youthful energy and musical maturity. Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s beloved Overture to The Magic Flute is a sparkling romp fueled by musical genius.

Double Take: The Human Effect

New World Center

What do artists offer to a world that can feel so chaotic? Join our search for answers as we imagine our future, present and past through art that stirs, inspires and empowers. Explore film and music clips from Thea von Harbou and Fritz Lang’s Metropolis and Charlie Chaplin’s Modern Times, John Luther Adams’ “tsunami of sound” Dark Waves, and the intersection of Medieval art and 1930s Germany in Paul Hindemith’s Mathis der Maler.

The Aces of Austria

New World Center

From the City of Music comes chamber works steeped in great tradition, led by Vienna’s own star cellist Tamás Varga. Erich Korngold’s lush String Sextet nods to fellow Austrians Mahler and Strauss while foreshadowing his future as the father of Hollywood film music. Franz Joseph Haydn infuses sophistication and spontaneity in his trio for flute, cello and piano. After moving to the U.S., Vienna-born Arnold Schoenberg wistfully recalls music where tonality and rhythmic stability were paramount in his Second Chamber Symphony, one of his only tonal later works.

Dischord Records @dischordrecords http://dischord.com

The last time drummer Brendan Canty and bassist Joe Lally were in a band together, they were the rhythmic architects for Fugazi, an organization whose decade and a half of disciplined progressivism provided a necessary bridge between the zenith of late-punk expression and everything alternative in rock that followed. Anthony Pirog is a jazz and experimental guitarist based in Washington, D.C. The trio’s debut on Dischord Records was recorded at Canty’s practice space throughout 2017, live and mostly without overdubs. It’s a snapshot of a band dedicated to the live ideal, where structure gives birth to improvisation.

Instagram: http://instagram.com/maryoverthere

Mary Lattimore is a Los Angeles-based harpist. She experiments with effects through her Lyon and Healy Concert Grand pedal harp, concocting half-structured improvisations which can include both ambient glitter and unsettling noise. Her first solo record, the Withdrawing Room, was released on Desire Path Recordings in 2014. The solo recordings that followed, At the Dam and Collected Pieces, were released by Ghostly International.
Mary has also recorded synth + harp duo projects with Elysse Thebner Miller (And the Birds Flew Overhead) and Jeff Zeigler (Slant of Light) and has co-written reimagined scores for the 1968 experimental silent film Le Revelateur, directed by Philippe Garrel (who approved of the project), and the Czech New Wave classic Valerie and Her Week of Wonders, and performed these scores live throughout the US with Jeff Zeigler and the Valerie Project, respectively. She has contributed and written harp parts for such artists as Kurt Vile, Thurston Moore, Sharon Van Etten, Meg Baird, Steve Gunn, the Clientele, Hop Along, Jarvis Cocker, Karen Elson, Ed Askew and Quilt.
Ghostly International will release her third solo record in late spring of 2018.

Yann Tiersen – Solo in Concert

Olympia Theater at Gusman Center for the Performing Arts

Artist, composer, performer, Yann Tiersenn may be known for his playful, easy melancholy soundtrack to “Amélie from Montmartre” – but fans and followers know his music styles run the gamut from punky thrashing guitar to notable collaborations with hipster icons like Jane Birkin and the Cocteau Twins’ Elizabeth Fraser.

Along the way Yann Tiersen has turned out acclaimed studio albums such as Les Retrouvailles, Dust Lane, Skyline and EUSA while establishing himself as a top performer in concert halls around the world.

This winter, Yann Tiersen drops his latest album – ALL. Releasing, February 15 2019 – ALL – is the first album to be recorded at Yann Tiersen’s new studio, venue and community centre, The Eskal, built in an abandoned discotheque on the island of Ushant, a small island positioned in the Celtic sea between Brittany and Cornwall, Tiersen’s home for the past 10 years.

The album, mixed and co-produced by Gareth Jones, continues the themes of environment and a connection to nature first explored on EUSA, incorporating recordings from outside of Brittany, such as the redwood forests of California as well as field recordings from Tempelhof airport in Berlin (on ‘Tempelhof’), plus guest vocalists.

JENNY LEWIS

Revolution Live

Jenny Lewis had her first taste of stardom when she was a child, appearing in a series of television shows and films. As she came of age, she grew disenchanted with acting and turned to music, forming the popular indie rock band Rilo Kiley with Blake Sennett. Her work with Rilo Kiley drew upon the seediness of her native San Fernando Valley and nearby Hollywood and garnered great critical acclaim. However, she began to expand her horizons when she released a country-tinged solo debut calledRabbit Fur Coat. This established Lewis as a formidable singer/songwriter in her own right, and her reputation only grew after Rilo Kiley split-up, thanks to her rustic Americana album Acid Tongue and the slick pop sheen of The Voyager.  Acid Tongue debuted at 24 on Billboard’s Top 200 upon its release andThe Voyager debuted at number nine. Lewis has recently unveiled plans for her fourth solo album, titledOn the Line and set to arrive sometime in spring 2019. The follow-up to The Voyager promises 11 original songs and a personnel lineup on the album including Beck (with whom Lewis recently performed at Red Rocks Ampitheatre) and Ringo Starr, as well as Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers bandmemberBenmont Tench, producer/bassist Don Was, and noted session drummer Jim Keltner.
