Some of the music here you can purchase to help support different groups that are working for social justice – all proceeds go to the following: ACLU, Planned Parenthood, Standing Rock (in multiple capacities), The Sierra Club, NextGen Climate, the NAACP Legal Defense Fund, and The Trevor Project.
Turn on. Tune in. Turn it up. Tear it down.
and a note from Brett Newski (brettnewski.com): If you’d like to protest disgusting corporate filth, please consider sending supplies to Standing Rock. They’re in need of fur blankets, gas cards, firewood, and sleeping bags. It’s super easy to order from AMAZON and ship them here: 202 Main Street Fort Yates, ND 58538

Black Spirituals . Improvised Set @ Switchboard Music Festival . 2015
Black Spirituals’ performance involves the manipulation of temporal experience using a framework of dynamic relationships and a “Multi-Aesthetic Approach to Improvisation.” The title “Black Spirituals” is borrowed from a found cassette documenting a lecture given by Bernice Reagon on the roots music of American Black Slaves. These stories form a sonic resonance that speaks of rich relationships to ones surroundings, memories, profound feelings, dreams, and the experiences that inspire human expression. This duet features a new tradition in conversant, duo vernacular dynamics that sparked a revolution in our conceptions of space, stage, ritual, performance, geography, praxis, brotherhood, relationships, rockin’ out, and more.
