12-04-2019 12:00:00 12-04-2019 12:00:00 America/New_York Stretch Music Festival | 7:30 PM - 11:00 PM [Decolonializing Sound] The 3rd year of the Stretch Music Residency is focused on liberating sound from antiquated belief systems that inhibit our ability to truly hear one another. I have always felt the best way to communicate is to truly listen. So this year we're intent on breaking down value distinctions surrounding how we hear and interpret composition, dispelling long held and completely false notions that cultures that prioritize melody & harmony are more valid then cultures that prioritize rhythm. Ending this notion is essential to truly hearing one Christian Scott aTunde Adjuah returns to MSM to lead a FREE masterclass on his genre blind Stretch Music. All music students, musicians and lovers of the jazz idiom and all its variabilities are welcomed to join this immersive workshop Edison Award winning centered on improvisation, and Grammy nominated Christian Scott aTunde Adjuah curates and performs his final Stretch Music Festival under his three year residency with Harlem Stage. The generosity, leadership and innovation Christian has brought to the Harlem Stage Gatehouse and broader New York community is extraordinary. We are excited to once again create space for Christian's musical explorations, community of ferocious artists and Stretch Music Residency CHRISTIAN SCOTT ATUNDE ADJUAH'S STRETCH MUSIC RESIDENCY CONTINUES another and creating music with a higher nutritional value for the next generation of listeners and practitioners. I feel strongly that the path we are embarking on will not only impact the artistic community by pushing the boundaries of what's possible, but also the general community by working fervently to create a broader scope of what this art has to offer by improving access and engagement through inclusion, sonically and literally. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=342797 Harlem Stage Harlem Stage
