From ancient conjurers to quick-handed con artists to Las Vegas illusionists, magicians throughout the ages have been expertly manipulating human attention and perception to dazzle and delight us. The phenomena of cognitive and sensory illusions are responsible for the “magic” of a magic trick, but how and why? Come meet neuroscientist Adam Gazzaley and magician Robert Strong as they team up to demonstrate how magicians use our brains as their accomplices in effecting the impossible—and explain what scientists can learn about the brain by studying the methods and techniques of magic.

Great Voices of Rock and RB

Event starts in

19 Days 19 Hours 34 Minutes

A 6-week Musical Journey with Pete Elman Throughout the rich, long arc of popular music, there has always existed the great singer, the individual who elevates the great song to another dimension, a place where, as listeners, we are thrilled and inspired for the rest of our lives when we hear their work. Great Voices covers the lives and careers of six legendary rock and R&B singers from 1955 to the present. Although all of them are also known as songwriters and performers, they have made their marks as vocalists, who could rock our socks off one minute, while with the next breath cajole the sweetest melodies from the material they so passionately tackled. In this class we will take a chronological cultural and musical journey through the lives and careers of the following 6 “Great Voices”: the “Genius,” Ray Charles; the “King of Soul,” Sam Cooke; the “Voice,” Roy Orbison; the “Queen of Rock n’ Roll,” Tina Turner, the soulful and indefatigable Bonnie Raitt, and the “Queen of Country-Rock,” Linda Ronstadt. The course will feature several media formats including lectures, slideshows, photographs, recorded music, film clips and the use of live music. The instructor will play piano, guitar and sing, and will choose appropriate examples from each genre to perform in class.

When: Saturday Aug 10 2:00pm

Where: Rhythmix Cultural Works

2513 Blanding Ave Alameda CA

Admission: $150 for 6 week series, $30/drop in
