Friday, April 17th at 9:00 pm
In 1980, a Japanese electronics manufacturer unwittingly unleashed one of music history’s most important instruments upon the world: The Roland TR-808. More than just a drum machine, the 808 became the backbone of countless hip-hop and R&B tracks before injecting itself into nearly every genre imaginable. From Afrika Bambaataa and LL Cool J to Marvin Gaye and Phil Collins, musicians from all walks of life wanted that iconic 808 sound. Director Alexander Dunn immerses you in the story of this iconic instrument, as told through the eyes (and ears) of some of the most influential artists of the past four decades.

PLAYING WITH:
Pure - Karim Huu Do // UK // 11 min - Follow a ten-member hip-hop collective Last Night In Paris (think the UK’s Odd Future) on an ethereal journey out of the British urban sprawl, and into the surrounding forest to experiment with a mind-altering substance. An intoxicating mix of Lars von Trier’s atmosphere with a shoe commercial slickness, Pure celebrates the otherworldly potential of music.
