7.16.19: It’s All About The Process

Day 7 and the focus is on the process: processing the Super 8 film shot over the last few days and learning about the process of conduction from Tyshawn Sorey, composer and multi-instrumentalist extraordinaire.

The humidity is rising and the AC is broken but there’s no time for sweatin’ it because today is Dynamic Day 3! We’ve got Pauline Oliveros-inspired sound explorations with Emil, a discussion about some issues (education, sanctuary cities, politics, police brutality, the opioid crisis) and people of note (including Kerry Ellington and Judge Angela C. Robinson)  in […]
