CONCERT: MATANA ROBERTS

CONCERT: MATANA ROBERTS

Matana Roberts is an internationally renowned composer, band leader, saxophonist, and mixed-media practitioner. Working across improvisation, new music composition, art, dance, poetry, and theatre, Roberts is perhaps best known for their acclaimed Coin Coin project—a multi-chapter work that aims to channel the mystical roots and spirit-raising traditions of American creative expression, while maintaining a deep and substantive engagement with narrativity, history, community, and political expression within improvisatory musical structures.

 

They have served as distinguished guest composer at the University Of Chicago, Chair of the Music/Sound department at Bard MFA and were a Fellow of the DAAD Artists-in-Berlin program. New works have been commissioned by Donaueschinger Musiktage, Miller Theatre’s Composer Portrait series, The Crossing, Walthamstow Borough Of Culture, Brooklyn Rider, and by the composers Claire Chase, Elaine Mitchener, and Johnny Gandelsman. Roberts mixed-media artworks have been shown across a variety of solo and group contexts including the Akademie der Künste, daadgalerie, and Savvy Contemporary in Berlin, and New York’s Friedman Gallery.

 

On the occasion of the European premiere of Ulysses Jenkins: Without Your Interpretation, renowned composer and saxophonist Matana Roberts will play a 30-minute, responsive concert in our cinema.

 

Limited capacity.
