The evening includes screenings of Anecdotes, Remo Osaka, and 70 for 70 (+1), and a live performance of Two Lips, a piece written by Niblock and recorded in 2011 by three different guitar quartets. At MIT, Two Lips will be played by students from the Berklee Interdisciplinary Arts Institute under the direction of Neil Leonard: Yun Yun Huang, Andrew Ikenberry, Jason Lim, Aseem Suri, and William Wingnall. The performance will be followed by a book signing reception.
