Add to Calendar 10/06/2018 3:00 PM 10/06/2018 5:00 PM America/Chicago Performance: Yachting with the Kennedys

Explore music and performance art in all corners of the museum highlighted by a scavenger hunt, cosplay and grand finale of the 6-SIDED Keyboard. Composer, Nathan Felix has assembled an eclectic group of musicians and performers, such as Justin Boyd & From Those Who Follow the Echoes, who will use the theme of “electro” and “synthesizer” for their original compositions.

The basis of Yachting with the Kennedy’s is creating this surrealistic world by placing musicians, performers and costumed characters in various gallery spaces in the museum, where attendees can explore and engage. Those who dare enter this world will also be encouraged to participate in a scavenger hunt in which discovering clues can activate secret performances.

The finale will be new works from Felix performed on a 1970’s vintage 6-sided keyboard. This unique vintage keyboard has six key stations with different outputs which will allow Felix to create a surround sound experience in the Great Hall at SAMA. Inspired by director, Luis Buñuel’s Le Fantôme de la liberté, each of the six pianists will use a gold toilet as their piano bench and each will be dressed in full regalia.

Ii. Screaming in the Wind

  • This June while hanging with friends at Francis Bogside, a young nurse approached my table as she overheard us talking about music and asked if I was involved with the pop up choir, From Those Who Follow the Echoes. I said yes. She then proceeded to tell me about a bright, sassy, art loving patient of hers with no family, Janelle (14 yrs), who had recently passed and explained how special Janelle was. She asked if I could write a song that could release or say goodbye to Janelle. This song is in memory of Janelle.
