HAZMAT MODINE plays the kind of Blues one might have found in a barrelhouse in New Orleans had the city been inhabited by gypsies who performed with Otis Redding and the city had been built on the Black Sea. The band is driven by harmonicas, accordion, tuba, drums, guitars, and a full horn section. Guests play such exotic instruments as the Romanian cimbalom, the banjitar, and the Claviola. Front man Wade Schuman has the appropriately throaty voice of someone who has both hopped freight trains and collaborated with the Throat Singers of Tuva.

For the past eight years, the band has been touring in over 35 countries worldwide. They have collaborated/performed with a vast range of artists including Bombino, Kronos Quartet, Cat Empire, the Gangbe Brass band from Benin, and Natalie Merchant. The title track from their first CD BAHAMUT was recently used in the 3D film Pina by Wim Wenders, and currently in a performance by Pina Bausch and the Stuttgart Ballet. Their second CD Cicada was awarded the Charles Cross award in France for best blues album of the Year, and topped number one on the World Music Charts in Europe.

Matt Bauder is a distinguished saxophonist, multi-instrumentalist, composer, bandleader and sideman. Critics say he evokes “an ideal of midcentury jazz modernism, without abandoning an exploratory air” (The New York Times) and “he consistently demonstrates killer chops and impeccable taste both as an improviser and as a conceptualist, finding thrilling ways to use arrangement, composition, and electronic production to forge something new” (The Chicago Reader). In 2007, Bauder formed Day in Pictures, enlisting some of the most compelling figures of Brooklyn’s creative music scene, all renowned composers and band leaders in their own right. The band’s first two albums were released by All About Jazz record label of the year Clean Feed Records.

It’s time for some women on the bandstand! There are many female instrumentalists talented enough to play jazz on a national stage. Unfortunately, despite the numerous contributions of women to jazz music over the years, the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra has never had a female permanent member.

Blind auditions in American classical orchestras increased the number of women in classical orchestras from less than 5% in the 1970s to nearly 50% today. We have called on Jazz at Lincoln Center to advertise job openings and hold blind auditions before a committee for new hires.

This event is organized by the Jazz Women Advocates. Featuring live music by saxophonist Virginia Mayhew and the Virginia Mayhew Group, with Roberta Piket.

Genre:  traditional Mauritanian music/Fulani (Guinea) music

Noura Mint Seymali is heir to a Mauritanian iggawin (griot) lineage stretching back for untold generations. Her stepmother Dimi Mint Abba was one of Mauritania’s most famous musicians and a major figure in bringing Mauritanian music to international audiences. As the daughter of the late Seymali Ould Mouhamed Val, a revered scholar-musician credited as the first person to apply written notation to folk music in Mauritania, Noura is a true tradition bearer maintaining an ancient art and adding her personal signature. Her hypnotic grooves meld traditional Mauritanian instruments, like the ardin (harp) and tidinit (skin-faced lute), within an electrified psychedelic rock band. She is accompanied by her husband, guitarist Jeiche Ould Chighaly; bassist Ousmane Touré;  and Senegalese drummer/producer Matthew Tinari. Her CD Tzenni was recently named one of NPR’s Top 50 Albums of 2014.

Bailo Bah is a master of the tambin an endblown three-holed flute used by the Fulani people for various rituals. He grew up in a traditional village in the heart of the Fulani land in the Futa Djalon mountains of Guinea. He was a soloist for twenty-two years with the Ballets Koteba of Abidjan and toured the world with Africa Oye.  Sylvain Leroux was born in Montreal and studied classical flute and jazz. He learned to play the tambin in Guinea and has collaborated for many years with West African musicians and formed Fula Flute with Bailo Bah. He is acknowledged as one of the few Westerners to have mastered this instrument. Together these two musicians perform a hypnotic duet combining voice and flute with a rhythmic intensity that brings to mind the harmonica of of Sonny Terry’s “whooping the Blues”

This is no longer the time for ignoring growth. there was a time when obfuscation was necessary and numbing desired. this time is no longer present (whether you like it or not).
they speak of a beauty that appears of it’s own volition, that is not dialectically bound to the slow ache of decay as it subsides. We cannot be sure that this beauty exists. And so we endlessly reveal.

installment 2:

Lauren Lee
I am going backwards in time, unravelling myself until nothing but bits and pieces of my personality and life are left on the floor. Through this journey I will experience all emotions and no emotions, and the goal is that the audience will as well. I will be joined by Charley Sabatino on bass, who will be doing the same thing, but in reverse, starting from the pieces at the beginning and working toward becoming whole. We will meet in the middle for brief harmony before spiraling out of control in opposite directions again.

Alex Cohen
April has evidently been declared autism awareness month, so I think there would be no better time to discuss my own experiences with the condition. I’ll fully admit that I’m on the spectrum, and have both autism and a mild case of savant syndrome. These conditions affect every facet of my life, and I will discuss what I’ve dealt with throughout my life, and then display some of the supposed ‘upsides’.

Andrea Pensado
To my astonishment, Andreita (my ventriloquist doll) has taught me many things, things I still don’t quite get but that go deep within and heal me. Probably the most important one is that healing doesn’t have to be (only) painful. There’s incredible joy hidden within, I (just!) have to learn how to release it. The obstacles are many: fear, control just to name a few. I believe that personal healing is a social responsibility. It’s not an easy process, and I don’t think it has an end, but it’s a path worth walking… maybe just out of gratitude for being alive.

Michael Stablein
These six scores are an autobiographical study in the act of ‘passing’: the ability of a person to be regarded as a member of a social group other than their own, generally with the purpose of gaining social acceptance or to cope with difference anxiety.
The trauma earned in passing or trying to ‘pass’. The trauma earned in doing this ‘passing’ and renouncing one’s difference publicly. The trauma of seeking masculine intimacy that comes at a cost.

Shawn Escarciga will close the evening with a discussion of how we share trauma; how to channel pain creatively and how to face darkness in a way that allows us to present it to others (and ourselves) in a communally healing way

from wikipedia: the regrowth of lost tissues or organs in the human body is being researched. Some tissues such as skin regrow quite readily; others have been thought to have little or no capacity for regeneration, but ongoing research suggests that there is some hope for a variety of tissues and organs. Human organs that have been regenerated include the bladder, vagina and the penis.

Farid Ayaz, Abu Muhammad & Brothers Qawwal perform qawwali, the ecstatic devotional music of Sufi Muslims made famous in the West by Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan. The 9-member ensemble has gained international recognition for its renditions of both the popular traditional form and the more introspective ancient classical qawwali that is seldom heard today.   Similar to gospel in its use of call-and-response and spiritual fervor, qawwali songs are accompanied by percussive handclapping, harmonium, tabla (drums), and a chorus.  Qawwali (Urdu for “utterance”) songs range from 13th century mystical Persian poems to more recent Punjabi poems that speak of the intoxication of divine love. The qawwali singer or qawwal is regarded as God’s interpreter and devotees sometimes enter into trance. The group sings in many languages, including Urdu, Punjabi, Sindhi, Hindi, Persian, Arabic, Bengali and Purbi.

I For An Eye is a multi-room exhibition at MINY Media Center by IFP about everyday surveillance, a probe into the permanently visible life of the modern person.

Opening Reception and interactive works:
Sat, May 2, 2-6pm
Fixed Media Exhibition:
Sun, May 3 – Tue, May 5, 10am to 10pm; and Wed, May 6 10am to 3pm.

ARTISTS: Christopher Manfugas, Jamie Morgan, Samantha Berendt, Sarah Simon, Shelby El Otmani, Sonia Abraham, Xara Dupree Tan, Xina Graham-Vannais, Yijia Gui

As our temporal and digital selves become interchangeable, the question of whether we are ‘being watched’ is completely trite. In this presentation of Sarah Lawrence College’s Innovation Lab taught by Hans Tammen, the artists were brought together by their shared interest in the subtly oppressive infiltration of everyday surveillance to bring about a truly collaborative installation. Coming from various academic and artistic disciplines (journalists, filmmakers, photographers, composers, etc.), the artists intend to investigate the modern person’s state of permanent visibility, and the moral ambiguity therein.

Join us at the reception and performance on Saturday, May 2nd at 2pm for an audio-visual exploration of the space between victim and perpetrator, surveyor and specimen.

Time:  8pm
Venue: Jan Hus Presbyterian Church (351 East 74th Street, New York, NY 10021)
Ticket: free
Genre: a cappella women’s acoustic free improvisation trio

Arc Welding has few, perhaps no, precedents. Combining a cappella free improvisation and traversing multiple genres (contemporary serious composition, classical concert performance and modern opera, and jazz composing and performance), and singing with virtuosity and feeling!

Featuring the singers:

Constance Cooper, composer and vocal/keyboards improviser, wrote for the trio FirstAvenue during the 1990s, performing at Merkin Hall, The Kitchen, and Princeton University. She won first prize in the 2002 Gustav Mahler Competition (Austria) for her double concerto “Acrobat.” A grant from the American Composers Forum supported “Coming From Us,” chamber music for strings and electro-acoustic trio. A residency at OMI International Arts Center resulted in “Replying to Sin-Driven Senators by Not Thinking About Them,” premiered at St. Peter’s Church at Citigroup. She is a founding member of the trios Chemical Composition, Arc Welding, and ArtStar. She recently improvised for Sachiyo Ito and Company, and for the Bad Theater, iBeam Marathon, and Fringe Festivals.Recordings: Cadence/Quixotic; iTunes; Princeton University Music Department label/Representation: Marilyn Gilbert Arts Management

The soprano Beth Griffith continues her distinguished career as a stage and recital singer/dancer in the world of new serious music in the United States and Europe. After studies in the US and abroad, she appeared with Sequentia, Musikfabrik, Ensemble13, L’art pour l’Art, the Cologne Radio Symphony Orchestra, and the Paris Nouvel Orchestre Philharmonique. She has worked personally with the composers John Cage, Mauricio Kagel, Karlheinz Stockhausen, and Morton Feldman. Her one-hour solo recording of Feldman’s “Three Voices” won the German Record Critics Prize.

Vocalist, composer, pianist Lauren Lee calls her music “a hodgepodge of various influences, interests, and innate idiosyncrasies,” as she searches perpetually for the perfect balance of edgy and familiar. Lauren Lee is a midwestern transplant who arrived in New York in 2009 to complete an advanced degree at New York University, remaining here to live and work after finding her own voice and place in the artistic community. She attributes much of her eclectic sensibility to an upbringing rich in imagination and creativity. She favors strong rhythmic grooves, vocal-instrumentalism (a singer’s ability to rival instruments in speed, accuracy, and tone-colors), and non-traditional roles of instruments.
