Elevator Music 33
Up = Out: A Sun Ra Mixtape

Up = Out: A Sun Ra Mixtape is the first phase of a Sun Ra-inspired installation prompted by the exhibition Art Forms of Dimensions Tomorrow: Sound, Black Study, and the Multidisciplinary Artist, in the Tang’s atrium from April 13 – 16, which pairs the early art and archives of Sun Ra with contemporary sonic and sound-inspired artworks. Ra, best known for evoking the outer spaceways in his music, also made key philosophical, poetic, and visual contributions that have made a lasting impact on Afrofuturist and Afrosurrealist movements in art, music, and literature.
This “mixtape” is compiled by Skidmore College Professor Adam Tinkle, and includes the tracks Planet Earth, Pleiades, Spaceship Lullaby, Nebulae, I Am an Instrument, Sun Song, and Spontaneous Simplicity.
