“Wisdom To Know The Difference” is an exploration of agency, what it means to control and to let go – spiritually, sonically, and performatively. Live drums triggering electronic happenings – live vocals swimming through emergent textures – improvisation and randomization playing in a song-structured sandbox.
In the year MMXII, they began recording in a church with a moldy ceiling, a moldy basement, and of course a bedroom made out of pews. “Do You Dream?” is an experiment of experimentation and songs coming together. Some might call it “songmentation”. Or even, if you look at it as experimentation + songs augmenting each other you might say “Saugmentation”.
Versatile, genre-bending Detroit producer of hip hop and electronic musics – representing the Video7 crew – fresh off the release of his latest album “That Girl Was A Jewel” – with another release coming soon.

“The Detroit Way” is jazz musicians passing down knowledge to the next generation. DYV has been engaged in The Detroit Way since February during our Jazz Violin “The Detroit Way” workshop series. On Juneteenth, teaching artists Marion Hayden (bass), Michelle May (violin), Leslie DeShazor (viola), Michael Malis (keys), and Matt Daher (drums) will perform alongside their students.
This Knight Arts Challenge project is part of the Aetlier program at N’Namdi gallery, which teaches students the skills needed to run an art gallery.

About Sugar Hill Arts District:
“In 1941, Ernest White purchased the Gotham Hotel at the corner of John R and Orchestra Place just south of this district. Although the purchase was apparently a case of mistaken racial identity, it set a precedent, and more African-Americans began moving and establishing businesses in the area.
Spectral Slumber is an all night, immersive, BYOBlanket, multimedia, performance-installation experience ft. work by a spectrum of artists and performers. Video projection-collages blend with non-stop live ambient drones, surrounding and enveloping participants in an audiovisual dreamscape to collectively dream to. Performances and installations inspired by dreams, slumber, and surreality abound throughout the space and throughout the night.
Doors 10:30 – 1:30
*Event goes all night, but entry is only permitted before 1:30 or by special arrangement.

7:30 PM – Saturday August 6th
For many years I’ve been investing energy and curiosity into my evolution as a percussionist, composer, and producer. Crafting sound on all accounts but in different streams of creation and on radically different temporal scales. In one stream being a vessel for the improvisatory Intuition (capital “I”) that realizes transient sonic possibilities and in a flash un-preciously leaves them behind. In another, basking in and nurturing the same momentary sonic gesture for days/weeks/months until it’s found its home.
About 9 months ago I started working on a new solo set of music written for the confluence of these streams of creation. Live drums, live vocals, samples, loops, textures, all colliding and interacting in an environment of composition and randomization.
On a musical and spiritual level, this music is an exploration of degrees of control. It is an inquiry into the limits of control. The ease/suffering that manifest out of clarity/confusion around those limits. The ever shifting nature of those limits. The responsibility to question what is possible.
This set is still a work in progress – I’m super excited/nervous/curious to take it out for a test run and share it with y’all at Sidewalk Festival 2016!
