Music and the Machine: An Evening with YACHT

October 25, 2022 @ 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm
Whitsell Auditorium

($30 for Members, Students, and Seniors)

PAM CUT and YACHT are teaming up for a night you won’t forget – YACHT will perform their GRAMMY-nominated album Chain Tripping LIVE after a screening of the documentary that breaks down how the Portland-born band teamed up with artificial intelligence to create it. The Computer Accent (directed by Sebastian Pardo and Riel Roch-Decter) documents the writing and recording of Chain Tripping, as well as the group’s storied history. The film also serves as a broader look at the role of artificial intelligence and its potential impact on the creative process, raising questions about the future of art and its intersection with technology.

The program will begin at 7 p.m. with a discussion with the band and filmmakers, followed by a screening of The Computer Accent. After the film ends, YACHT will perform Chain Tripping in its entirety.
