REAL FUTURE OF SOUND: SATURDAY, NOV 7, 7:30-11 PM

A smorgasbord of live journalism and musical performances challenging you to rethink what our future might sound like. Featuring a live podcast recording with Song Exploder, an electrifying performance by local legend Pamela Z, performative art by Dia Dear, sonic landscapes from Disquiet, a live score by Marc Kate, and original reporting from the entire Real Future team.

Additionally, we are thrilled to announce our headliner for the Real Future of Sound, the future soul songstress Kelela. Her new EP Hallucinogen has been described as “confident, amorphous, and unapologetic“, “as if her melodies were parting the sea before her“. Her songs feel like an R&B dispatch from another dimension; both emotional and unearthly, managing to combine sophisticated beats with a vulnerability in her voice that is rare.  We couldn’t be more thrilled to have her on our stage, both for an interview with Hrishikesh Hirway, and for a headlining set to close out the evening.

With more than 150 exhibits, everyone can find something that will unleash their inner scientist.
