Tune in for an open discussion with saxophonist Matana Roberts this Tuesday on Afternoon New Music from 3-4pm EST. Roberts brings her sax and expounds on the ideas that underpin her upcoming sound cycle, "breathe..." a conceptual work which draws on her recent residency in Prismatic Park (in Madison Square Gardens).
Matana Roberts for Afternoon New Music
Thursday, September 14, 2017 - 3:00pm to 4:00pm
"Breathe...", which Roberts explains was galvanized by the rise of militarized police, uses sound to explore layers of past and present with a compositional style Roberts calls panoramic sound quilting. "Breathe..." will premiere this Thursday at Roulette at 8pm.
