For our breaks between the daytime sessions, members of our Programming Committee volunteered to curate/create short bits of "bonus beats" content.

For this break, we have:

1. "You See Me," a 2020 music video by NYU Clive Davis Institute student Océane. "Can you ever truly see or know someone? "You See Me" relates to the idea "flux" by portraying the ways in which a person can be seen over the passage of time. We all fit into the story of history, and with this comes the ups and downs that come with life. Although it may be impossible to ever truly see a person, there is a beauty in appreciating darkness and light within each of us."
2. Michelle Habel-Pallán in conversation with recording artists Quetzal.
