Vinyl: Arthur Jafa, “A Series of Utterly Improbable, Yet Extraordinary Renditions”
Produktinformationen "Vinyl: Arthur Jafa, “A Series of Utterly Improbable, Yet Extraordinary Renditions”"
This Limited Edition Vinyl Record is produced on the occasion of Arthur Jafa’s exhibition A SERIES OF UTTERLY IMPROBABLE, YET EXTRAORDINARY RENDITIONS .
Artist, filmmaker and cinematographer Arthur Jafa presented a Listening Session on 9 September 2017 with musicians Steve Coleman, Morgan Craft, Micah Gaugh, Melvin Gibbs, Kokayi Carl Walker, Jason Moran and performing artist Okwui Okpokwasili, coinciding with the closing of his exhibition, “A Series of Utterly Improbable, Yet Extraordinary Renditions” at the Serpentine Sackler Gallery.
The dismembered jazz ensemble improvised simultaneously but separately at secret ‘Black Sites’ across London. The resulting music was live streamed to the Serpentine Sackler Gallery, where Okwui Okpokwasili performed, devising a time-based work accompanying the discordant soundtrack. The Listening Session was recorded direct-to-disc on The Vinyl Factory Lathe, which was installed in the Gallery.
