Jlin, the performer Pitchfork calls “a producer at the vanguard of electronic music who makes tracks that pulse with a quick and steady heartbeat,” and the multidisciplinary artist Florence To will be in residence at Mass MoCA, creating their new collaborative project, Akoma, a concert/installation they will reveal to the world for the first time in this work-in-progress presentation.

Akoma is a symbolic presence of heart and drum, the artists say, a rebirth that is rarely seamless, embarking on a journey through multiple realms and spaces.

“We are collaborating on a rhythmic conversation in which sound and light will create a resonance that absorbs and brings energy into the space. This constant motion of expression leaves moments of delicate shifts while exhibiting modes of control and unpredictability.

“Balance, erraticness, and fluidity require a consistent state of patience while working against the counterbalance of instability. The installation performance is a creation of intentional action and loss of flow, maintaining a balance similar to how human bodies raise questions about which rhythms we want to keep hidden.” – Jlin & Florence To

By the Way Berkshires is a digital magazine exploring creative life and community — art and performance, food and the outdoors — and I’m writing it for you, with local voices, because I’ve gotten to know this rich part of the world as a writer and journalist, and I want to share it with you.

If you’d like to see the website grow, you can join me for a few dollars a month, enough for a cup of coffee and a cider doughnut. Members get access to extra stories and multimedia, itineraries a bookmark tool. Let me know what you're looking for, and we’ll explore together.
