This event is over.


Audio engineer Steve Albini once said “The future belongs to the analog loyalists. [redacted] digital!” In this series of music explorations, bani haykal performs new music works written for a film that has not been made.


A running theme for this unmade film flirts with the idea that perhaps computers were a mistake, and maybe it is in everyone’s best interest that the world needs to slow down.


Mask-wearing is required for all indoor events. No tickets will be issued. Seats are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
