I will be presenting some sound based experiments and recordings that were produced during my recent sound residency. Tomorrow is the opening night of the exhibition SANCTUARY: Showings and Performances - FREE EVENTwhich will take place Oct 10-12, 2014. The MOVEMENT III pew (I have four) is dedicated to four incredible Philadelphia based Black women who allowed me to record them with some special headphone that allowed me hear myself to listen while listening(meta madness!). These women are a representation of how music of the African Diaspora has manifested within Black women who reside in the birthplace of America-Philadelphia, PA.
My participants- Adachi sang World Music in Spanish, Adesola played Punk Rock drum pattern for me in her home, Lela sang a lovely Oriki for Osun (Oshun, Ochun, Oxum) in Yoruba, and Shauna blew me away with a rendition of Four Women by Nina Simone sang in the genres of Folk, Classical, Jazz, Gospel, Blues, Field Holler-yes ALL OF THEM!
Please join me tomorrow night as I present to you all #TheChills
