Submit to et al.

From the forever sassy and always classy Justin Greene ’16:

et al., Wesleyan’s student-run all-fiction prose publication is accepting submissions (2500 word limit) until Friday, February 27th, 2015.

et al. provides a tangible medium for the celebration of student fiction. Our mission is to embrace our namesake and emphasize the collaborative nature of the creative process. We bridge the gap between author and editor through one-on-one meetings, culminating in a print anthology at the end of the year. New stories, old stories, short stories, flash fiction, comics: give them to us at etalsubmissions(at)gmail(dot)com. Get published. It’s fun. Also, if you’re interested in the editorial/layout side of things, send an email to jigreene(at)wesleyan(dot)edu.

Deadline: Friday, February 27th

“Idiopreneurial Entrephonics” Concert I – “Perambulating, Peering, Prodding and Hearing: The Synthesizer Car Show”

shapeimage_1From CFA staffer Andrew Chatfield:

“Perambulating, Peering, Prodding and Hearing: The Synthesizer Car Show” is the first concert of a two day festival of music made mostly with analog electronic circuitry, “Idiopreneurial Entrephonics,” this business of sharing sound.

Concerts of live electronic music often end with people wandering the stage to puzzle over the maze of cables and boxes that served as the instrument of the evening’s music. The synthesizer car show reverses that. All of the instruments of the weekend will be available for audition and inspection, punctuated by short informative declamations and needle drops by Thom Holmes (author of “Electronic and Experimental Music,” and possessor of every LP record ever made that features a Moog synthesizer); and Asha Tamirisa (creator of the digital doppleganger of the ARP 2500 synthesizer). With contributions from David Behrman, Michael Johnsen, Mark VerbosMichael Schumacher, Kato Hideki, Luke DuBois, and Matt Wellins; graduate music students Peter Blasser, Cecilia Lopez, and Daniel Fishkin; and many others.

And at 9pm, there will be performances by Analogos (Michael Schumacher, Kato Hideki and Luke DuBois).

Date: Friday, February 20
Time: 8-10 PM
Place: World Music Hall

Film Series: Badlands

1973. USA. Dir: Terrence Malick. With Martin Sheen, Sissy Spacek. 95 min.

 

A small town girl is swept up in the whirlwind of a troubled young drifter, joining him on a killing spree across the striking landscapes and radiant horizons of the vast Midwest. Malick’s impressive debut becomes a fairytale of mid-century Americana, its chilling brutality rendered poetic in the trademark lyricism that would come to define the director’s work.
