No Telemetry is a night of music and film that combines two long form video pieces with live musical accompaniment with several short films from local artists. The unifying theme of the night is the promise of freedom and hope manifested through storytelling from the past into a modern mythology of the cosmos.
Axemunkee performs “Bring Us Your Women”, an international anthology dedicated to women and the pursuit of divinity and freedom. The project seeks to tell existing and re-imagined stories of historic and mythical individuals, each presenting a message of humanity that transcends gender and religion. < http://www.bringusyourwomen.com/ >
Mission Creep, a music and multimedia project based in Boston, performs “…And Safely Back To Earth” , a four-part film with a semi-improvisational soundtrack, entirely sourced from archival NASA footage, that traces the arc of space exploration from it’s early days to the present and beyond. < http://missioncreep.org >
The Double Duchess Guitar and Drum duo featuring Catherine Capozzi of Axemunkee (guitar) and Jess Townsend of World/Inferno Friendship Society (drums).
Digital artist, photographer and filmmaker Michael Lewy will be showing his series of short deconstructed science fiction films exploring the nature of representation of technology through artificial settings and special effects. < http://www.michaellewy.com/ >

The night is also coordinated with Yuri’s Night (https://yurisnight.net), the “World Space Party”, a global celebration of humanity’s past, present, and future in space. Yuri’s Night parties and events are held around the world every April in commemoration of April 12, 1961, the day of cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin’s first manned spaceflight, and April 12, 1981, the inaugural launch of NASA’s Space Shuttle.
Since 2001, a loose group of volunteer organizers have coordinated and promoted events large and small revolving around the central theme of space exploration, science education and passion for the future.
