In a very short time the developed world has realized that global warming poses real challenges to the our future. In this visual talk, the journalist and urban analyst engages the fundamental question: what to do about it? He argues that we’ll more quickly slow global warming—and blunt its effects—by retrofitting cities, suburbs, and towns. He shows that change undertaken at the building and community level can reach carbon-reduction goals rapidly.

John Tauranac knows architectural New York, but even he was stumped by some of the subjects that the great aerial photographer Yann Arthus-Bertrand shot for their newest book. Tauranac takes it all with a sense of humor and more than a dash of humility as he discusses some of the mysteries with which he was presented. He will share the stories with you, and he’ll show some of his favorite photographs from this glorious book and tell the tales behind them.

Film |
Distinguished by being "banned forever" in its native Czech Republic, Jan Nemec's "A Report on the Party" is a great film from the flowering of the Czech cinema in the 1960s. It is a political thriller that satirizes unquestionable conformity. A group of happy picnickers are accosted by a group of strangers led by a bullying sadist who has an unbreakable hold over his followers. After he interrogates one of them, a stranger then invites everyone to a nonsensical, but elegant and formal banquet outdoors. Nemec documents the process of self-deception and rationalization which lead to an acceptance of constrant; free will and freedom are seen as difficult to maintain and easily discarded. The affair is bizarre, and ends when one of the guests (played by film director Evald Schorm) chooses not to remain and escapes. His compatriots agree that he must be recaptured, and the group arms and hunts him down. The film concludes with the nightmarish barking of search dogs. 71 min.

Concert |
Fieldwork will present a program of original compositions which reference the spirit of Schoenberg’s music from a variety of perspectives. Many of tonight’s works privilege creative agency and expression above all else and may bear a passing resemblance to the emotional tenor of pieces like Erwartung and Pierrot Lunaire. Other compositions explore the relationship between repetitive rhythmic cells and highly chromatic pitch content. And in that sense, they can be viewed as part of a musical discourse which includes Schoenberg’s 3rd String Quartet (Op. 30) and the second movement of his Op. 11 for piano. Fieldwork is a collective of three widely celebrated young composer-performers: pianist Vijay Iyer, saxophonist Steve Lehman, and drummer Tyshawn Sorey. Fieldwork’s music reflects each member’s ties to the American jazz tradition, modern composition, African and South Asian musics, underground hip-hop and electronica, and the influential music of Chicago’s A.A.C.M..
