(July 18, 2018) Rock Island, IL - All Senses Festival is back for its second year, September 25-30th, 2018. All Senses Festival is a collaboration of several ongoing artistic endeavors combined under one umbrella: music, spoken word, film, an antique, craft and art fair, and much more. The festival incorporates multiple venues on both sides of the Mississippi River, taking place at The Figge Art Museum, Rock Island Brewing Company, and Rozz-Tox. 

The week will kick off on Tuesday at the Figge with The Roedelius Cells, an immersive audio experience created by Grammy-nominated composer Tim Story, and featuring original piano recordings by Hans-Joachim Roedelius; presented by The Figge Art Museum, Ragged Records, and Curious Music. The installation will be in the Grand Lobby Tuesday through Thursday evening, where a closing ceremony and conversation with Tim Story will take place. After the closing ceremony, a brief cocktail hour will lead into Cinema at the Figge, presented by Ford Photography. There will be a short film program of Volume 12: Guitar & Drum, with live scoring from Brian Barr of Aseethe, Jason Horras of Archeress, and Emma Ruth Rundle, as well as feature film, Milford Graves Full Mantis. Cinema at the Figge is free, with donations welcome, and guaranteed seating for All Senses ticket holders.

The music segment of All Senses includes national, regional, and local acts; a few of the highlights include Bongripper, Emma Ruth Rundle, McCombs/MacKay/Rumback, Telekinetic Yeti, Condor & Jaybird and The Golden Fleece present: Snooty and the Snout Pouch and more.
