Trailer: Music and the Machine: An Evening with YACHT
About: PAM CUT and YACHT are teaming up for a night of film, music, and discussion. In 2019, Portland’s own YACHT broke new ground in music production with their GRAMMY-nominated seventh studio album, Chain Tripping, by collaborating with artificial intelligence. 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.
Location: Portland Art Museum, Whitsell Auditorium
Doors open: 6:30 pm
