On our closing weekend, please join us for a concert and CD release party of the MIYUMI Project’s music composed for the film And Then They Came for Us, screened hourly in the 2nd floor theater. All attendees will receive a free CD. Founded by renowned composer and musician Tatsu Aoki, the MIYUMI Project is a laboratory of sound, where he explores the nexus of cultures: Asian and American, Japanese and African, past and present. Tatsu Aoki is a leading advocate for the Asian American community, as well as a prolific composer and performer of traditional and experimental music forms, a filmmaker and an educator. He has produced more than 30 experimental films and is one of the most in-demand performers of bass, shamisen and taiko, having contributed more than 90 recording projects and touring internationally during the last 25 years. The gallery will be open until 8pm.
