Bill Giles, Anna Moreska, Robert Rauschenberg, Merce Cunningham, John Cage, and Jasper Johns, Dillon’s Bar, New York, 1959.

In late 1962, John Cage, Jasper Johns, Robert Rauschenberg, and others decided to help Merce Cunningham finance a season on Broadway. “Bob and I said, ‘We’ll help.We’ll each give a painting to be sold to help cover the loss that a Broadway ‘season’ would incur.’ Cage said he had a Richard Lippold sculpture that he would contribute, a work in five parts.We estimated the value of these three works and it seemed a bit more than Merce’s season would require. I asked him what we should do with the extra money, perhaps a couple thousand dollars. And Merce said, ‘Help others, because we’re all in the same boat.’ So I said, ‘Well, it’s not enough, really.Why not invite other artists to join us and give works, and then we’ll be able to help others.’That’s how it started.” —Jasper Johns, Co-Founder of the Foundation for Contemporary Arts

ABOUT THE FOUNDATION FOR CONTEMPORARY ARTS Since its inception in 1963, FCA’s mission has been to encourage, sponsor, and promote innovative work in the arts created and presented by individuals, groups, and organizations. Its legacy continues today with unrestricted, by-nomination grants supporting pioneering work across the fields of dance, music/sound, performance art/ theater, poetry, and the visual arts. In addition to vital financial assistance, grantees receive the inestimable encouragement that comes with recognition by their peers. A fund is also maintained to assist artists with emergencies and unexpected opportunities related to their work. In the early 1960s, a time of invention and energetic collaboration in the visual and performance arts, opportunities for the funding of experimental work in dance, music, and theater were limited. The Foundation for Contemporary Performance Arts was launched in 1963 when John Cage (1912-1992) and Jasper Johns joined together to organize a benefit exhibition in support of their friends and colleagues in the performance arts. Willem de Kooning, Marcel Duchamp, Philip Guston, Alex Katz, Ellsworth Kelly, Roy Lichtenstein, Barnett Newman, Claes Oldenburg, Robert Rauschenberg, James Rosenquist, Frank Stella, and Andy Warhol were among the sixty-seven artists who contributed to this landmark show at the Allan Stone Gallery, perhaps the first-ever benefit exhibition. With proceeds from the exhibition, the Foundation began making grants to performing artists. The Foundation has operated continuously since the 1960s and predates the creation of government agencies such as the National Endowment for the Arts and the New York State Council on the Arts. During its first year, the FCPA made grants to composers Earle Brown and Morton Feldman, and underwrote a concert of their music at Town Hall in New York. Other early grantees include choreographers Trisha Brown, Lucinda Childs, Meredith Monk,Yvonne Rainer, and Twyla Tharp; composers Philip Glass, Steve Reich, and La Monte Young; and organizations such as Judson Memorial Church. In the early 1990s, the Foundation chose to provide significant sums to artists by awarding fewer, more substantial grants through a nomination process and expanded its grant-making to include visual artists. Since 1963, over 2,500 grants to artists and arts organizations—totaling nearly $12 million—have provided opportunities for creative exploration and the realization of new work. To date, over 900 visual artists have made these grants possible by contributing paintings, sculptures, drawings, prints, and photographs to fourteen fund-raising exhibitions held over the years. Financial contributions from individuals and organizations are encouraged and have significantly enhanced the Foundation’s ability to support 4 | About the Foundation

innovative work in the arts. But it is artists themselves—as individuals and as a community—who are primarily responsible for the Foundation’s existence, its growth, and its continuation. Grants and Awards Programs FCA awards grants in the following fields: dance, music/sound, performance art/theater, poetry, and the visual arts. Grants to Artists. These unrestricted cash awards are intended to provide recipients with the financial means to engage in whatever artistic endeavors they wish to pursue. Recipients are chosen annually through a confidential nomination and selection process. FCA invites dozens of artists and arts professionals to propose anonymously one exceptional individual, collective, or performing group who they believe deserves and would benefit from a large cash award. Then, a panel of artists and arts professionals selects grantees on the basis of the merit and imaginativeness of their work and the impact such recognition and support might have at this point in their careers. The number of selections made in any of the five fields is determined by the strength of the candidates as well as FCA’s resources that year. The 2016 Grants to Artists awards are $40,000 each, increased from $35,000 in 2015; the fourteen recipients are profiled in this booklet. The Directors of the FCA were joined in the grant selection process by choreographer Ishmael Houston-Jones, Associate Curator in the Department of Media and Performance Art at The Museum of Modern Art Thomas Lax, The Chocolate Factory Artistic Director Brian Rogers, and composer Marina Rosenfeld. Advisors to the selection committee for the Poetry category were poets Ed Friedman and Tan Lin. Grants to Artists is supported in part by a grant from the Frederick R. Weisman Philanthropic Foundation. The John Cage Award. This endowed $50,000 biennial award was established in 1992 by the Foundation’s Board in memory of the late composer, one of FCA’s founders and a Director of the organization until his death. It is given in recognition of outstanding achievement in the arts for work that reflects Cage’s spirit. Selections are made from invited nominations.   The Merce Cunningham Award.

REPORT FROM THE INTERROGATOR Patricia Spears Jones

In 1999, a series of commissioned writings on contemporary art to be published in these pages annually was inaugurated.The following essay continues this tradition. On 11/12/2015, Missy Elliott “dropped” her latest Where They From (WTF, which of course is also What The Fuck) and she uses almost every twentieth-century avant-garde practice from Dadaist costumes, extreme theatrical makeup, and even marionettes representing herself and Pharrell Williams. These visual elements, once so provocative or distancing, now come packaged in a commercially successful hip-hop production by a powerful female musician/producer who also explores gender and sexuality in fresh ways. It reminds me of the value of artistic experimentation—you never quite know where those experiments will go and how they will be received and used years hence. We are in a moment of intense cultural colliding and conflating. Who is appropriating what and why, and for what purpose? And oh my, what is the single artist to do—whether poet, dancer, sculptor, media developer, coder? For me, it is always: am I asking the questions that need to be answered?     Often we ask questions that are already answered and frankly we don’t like the answers. What is feminine in the age of transgender? How do we speak across racial and class divides? Can the hyper-commodification of art do any good for anyone other than the artists, gallerists, and collectors involved? No one wants to hear about an artist starving in a garret. But many artists are starving. Many artists continue to be outside those seemingly ever-expanding portals to the art marketplace. But we all know that some wares sell well and sell out and others are returned, marked down, and in the case of literature, pulped. So then the questions may be about money, or greed, or the market, or TO HELL WITH THAT MARKET because isn’t that where the avantgarde stood—outside of/on the edges of/in the back or the front of/markets. This is where artists find ways to answer those difficult questions without framing it all in the name of buy and sell, even as, of course, we want an audience for what we produce. Like I said, sometimes I don’t quite like the answers to my questions.  Essay | 7

I came to New York City in the early 1970s out of a great need to see something different, meet those who did not look like me, who had different kinds of ideas. I was not running from my Southern roots, I was walking towards a way of becoming. On my path were experiments in theater (Mabou Mines! The Performing Garage, Meredith Monk); poetry (St. Mark’s Poetry Project, readings in bars, lofts, even a speakeasy, mimeo magazines); and music (new music ensembles at The Kitchen, jazz in lofts and warehouses, and occasionally in clubs and concert halls where I heard David Murray, The World Saxophone Quartet, Eddie Jefferson, Betty Carter, Anthony Braxton, and Cecil Taylor); and dance and performance art (Joan Jonas on a beach); and conceptual pieces (Gordon Matta-Clark’s house in New Jersey cut down the middle, but you could—and I did—walk through it); and Laurie Anderson and her weeping violin at Jean Dupuy’s salons. The artists were varied, committed, mostly poor (not all), and glad to be making work outside of the media glare. Out of that complex activity, I learned about discipline, about risk, about failure, and yes, about success. How artists came together to make work, to work with each other, to critique and challenge each other, was and is thrilling to me four decades later. As a poet, I learned persistence even as much of what I wrote was rejected. As an audience, I learned to trust the power of ideas and difficult expression. As a listener, I opened my ears to musicians from Joan La Barbara to Anthony Davis, to early punk and hip-hop. One does not have to be an experimental artist, writer, or musician to deeply appreciate and feel nurtured by the work that goes several steps beyond what one thinks one should or could do. Artists lead in so many ways and other artists take what they can from the leavings. The two questions I ask are: Where Is The Love? and Who Do We Trust? The world was violent in 1974 when I came here; it is even more violent and volatile now—at one point we celebrated the end of the Vietnam War, and John Lennon rightly wrote, “War is Over! If You Want It.” Did we? Can charity and compassion flourish in a world so dedicated to greed on all levels and now fighting death cult ideologies? Can we even think about peace? Artists across the globe face censure, violation, and death for doing art—this is the twenty-first century. Where Is the Love?  Who Do We Trust? We have to trust our artistic selves. We are not “creatives” making more stuff for people to plug into their smartphones. We need to enlarge our idea of the human, what humans can do. When I think of John Cage and Merce Cunningham, I see the traces of their active imaginations—the way we talk about silence and beats in music, how the body moves or stands in dance—they made huge differences by answering the questions they had about silence, chance, motion, stillness, space.

how we think. That is power. That is why commercial artists—from music, to architecture, to design—cull the experiments of the avant-garde. When I came to New York City, I did not fall down a rabbit hole—I fell into a world of many delights, some despair, and extraordinary creativity. I am so thankful to have taken the chance. And it is thrilling that the Foundation for Contemporary Arts finds ways to allow all kinds of artists to take chances, try new ways, fail, and yes, sometimes succeed. My capacity to grow as a poet is a direct result of this kind of generosity. The avant-garde really does not exist, but if it did it would foment an organization like the Foundation. And it would share that generosity with the entire world (in and out of hip-hop videos).    Patricia Spears Jones is a poet based in New York. She received a Grants to Artists award in 1996.

JOHN CAGE AWARD

Joan La Barbara Born 1947, Philadelphia, PA Lives in Cortlandt Manor, NY Composer, Performer, Sound Artist

1970 B.S., New York University Faculty, New York University, Steinhardt and The New School, Mannes College of Music 2002-2004 Artistic Director, “When Morty Met John: John Cage, Morton Feldman, and New York in the 1950s” festival Selected Works and Performances 2012 Persistence of Memory, premiered at MaerzMusik, Haus der Berliner Festspiele, Berlin, Germany 2011 in solitude this fear is lived, premiered at Zankel Hall at Carnegie Hall, New York, NY 2010  Angels, Demons and Other Muses, presented by Roulette at Location One, New York, NY 2009  Striations, premiered at Performa 09, The Town Hall, New York, NY

1991 to hear the wind roar, premiered at Occidental College, Los Angeles, CA; also performed at Center for Contemporary Arts, Santa Fe, NM; Saint Peter’s Church, New York, NY; Podewil Berlin, Germany Selected Grants, Honors, and Awards 2011 Demetrio Stratos International Award for musical experimentation

My work is about discovery, immersing audiences within the sonic space, and about creating situations that cause us to reconsider attitudes about how we view the world, what is performance and what is music. Influenced by other disciplines, arts, and media, I create “Sound Paintings,” “Soundances,” conceptual pieces, and musical works in theatrical environments. For over four decades I have explored the nearly limitless vocal instrument alone and with electronic extensions. Many of my works include what I call “sonic atmospheres,” soundscapes created from multiple layers of voices, instruments, and natural sounds forming a shifting sonic landscape over which live material is performed. As I “see” sound in shapes, many of my scores include graphics to indicate energy flow and trajectory. In recent works, I have positioned musicians around the audience to place the audience in the center of the orchestral sound, allowed audience to wander many rooms of a music school, hearing and experiencing “Journeys and Observable Events” from a variety of vantage points, and rented a pop-up store for a 4-hour “discoverable” event involving pianist, set, costumes, video in a theatrical setting inspired by the dreams and sculptures of Joseph Cornell. As I think of my life as an experiment, I shall continue to explore new situations and be surprised by unpredictable results.

My work is about discovery, immersing audiences within the sonic space, and about creating situations that cause us to reconsider attitudes about how we view the world, what is performance and what is music. Influenced by other disciplines, arts, and media, I create “Sound Paintings,” “Soundances,” conceptual pieces, and musical works in theatrical environments. For over four decades I have explored the nearly limitless vocal instrument alone and with electronic extensions. Many of my works include what I call “sonic atmospheres,” soundscapes created from multiple layers of voices, instruments, and natural sounds forming a shifting sonic landscape over which live material is performed. As I “see” sound in shapes, many of my scores include graphics to indicate energy flow and trajectory. In recent works, I have positioned musicians around the audience to place the audience in the center of the orchestral sound, allowed audience to wander many rooms of a music school, hearing and experiencing “Journeys and Observable Events” from a variety of vantage points, and rented a pop-up store for a 4-hour “discoverable” event involving pianist, set, costumes, video in a theatrical setting inspired by the dreams and sculptures of Joseph Cornell. As I think of my life as an experiment, I shall continue to explore new situations and be surprised by unpredictable results.

My practice mines the territory of Modernism—abstraction and minimalism, experimental jazz, and seminal political and social shifts—to reveal the complex and often parallel legacies of the mid-twentieth-century’s social, cultural, and political experimentations. My work brings to light the unlikely alliances that emerged between the visual arts and the imprint of jazz, highlighting the way they became and continue to exist as tangible markers of social evolution and political strivings.

Though enthusiastically visual, I often feel that my work stems more from the traditions of literature than it does from the fields of painting or sculpture. I am probably a novelist, but somehow ended up standing in the wrong line, and inadvertently “signed up” to be a visual artist. I rarely concern myself with single objects or images. Rather, my fascination is with the relationships between objects or images—and the meanings implicit in their placement and combination. Over the years, I’ve developed a working method of zeroing in on subjects of interest, and slowly researching several subjects at a time, savoring all kinds of detours until, at a certain moment a work comes into being. Each of my works is an elaborately and intricately devised place. Themes overlap and echo from one exhibition to the next. The bridge between them is a series of books I have produced. These eclectic combinations of scholarship and pure hunch give the reader a way of entering my thinking and compose an overall conceptual framework.

When I discovered “concert dance” I hoped to use it to manifest the avantgarde; (a form that represented the future and released the past). At the time, I was overwhelmed by the idea and expectation (perhaps self inflicted) that an African artist should be responsible for the rich and complicated past, the ancient cultures and rituals, to be embraced by audiences at home and abroad. I have since developed a process and work that embraces and acknowledges that an African body can be simultaneously avant-garde and guardian of ancient—the intersection of these modes of expressions has helped me create a dynamic and complex (physical) language. I am currently invested in language-building as it is my belief that the language of the body can influence or create economies and engage civic society.

2011 M.F.A., Columbia University 2008 B.A., University of California, Berkeley Mentor, Point Foundation 2015-2016 Visiting Artist, Cooper Union

2012 Untitled, created with Park McArthur, performed at SculptureCenter, Long Island City, NY 2012 Waltz, performed and exhibited at Thomas Erben Gallery, New York, NY

I position my practice within both visual art and dance, drawing on the legacies of Minimalist sculpture, Institutional Critique, and both postmodern dance and classical ballet. I build material supports—floors, walls, and pedestals—to both outperform and fall short of their intended functions. They come under pressure, and exert pressure of their own, when my transgender body meets them in performance. Currently I am pursuing a line of inquiry at the convergence of labor law, architecture, and the ontology of the theater. My work finds its urgency in the art world’s recent incorporation of dance and the rapid architectural changes occurring in museums worldwide in an effort to accommodate performance. For the 2014 Whitney Biennial, I addressed the arms race among visual art institutions to construct so-called flexible performance spaces and grey boxes in this era of the (most recent) performative turn. That project was part of a larger body of work that uses white walls and sprung dance floors with black marley patinas as stand-ins for “white cube” and “black box”—themselves synecdoches for not only the theatrical space and exhibition space, but also visual art and dance as distinct fields and economies.

I conflate the visual and choreographic aspects of dance into an arena where both have equal value. I am interested in pulling the background materials of visual décor to the foreground while allowing the performance of the dance to recede. This creates a push/pull effect, encouraging the viewer to continually shift focus throughout the experience. At the heart of the dancing itself, is an investigation into the substrata of performing—reducing choreography to essential components that travel through a dancer’s experience. The dancers inhabit my work as human beings engaged in actions inherent to their environment—an environment of artifice being built around them. Potentially, this creates a different effect on the viewer than one in which a dance is inserted into an environment or in which the environment has a primarily decorative, or even, indifferent relationship to the dance. My inquiry is formalistic but it is also deeply human. It addresses our relationship to materiality and the senses—how we take for granted certain hierarchies of perception. I aim to challenge expectations of how a dance performance can function; creating formal transparencies for experiencing the visual, the kinetic, and the sensory.

I am an artist using theater, performance art, and dance to interrogate and indict an array of psychological and socio-political issues, particularly in the realms of sexual orientation, gender, and power struggles. Through highenergy, often violent choreography and the juxtaposition of hyperbolic prose with hyper-real dialogue, my work explores the tragicomedy of the human psyche, blurring boundaries between fantastical theatrics and stark naturalism, character and self, humor and horror. As an artist, my practice is based in the exploration of Otherness. My works, while frequently humorous, are built to reflect the psychological toll and distress of xenophobia and displacement. I create by first engaging the psychological concerns of the work, then formally working with raw emotional content to create text, choreography, and direction—what I call the “trauma method.” Mirrors often appear in my works, and that is precisely what I view my role as an artist to be: A mirror.

I am an artist using theater, performance art, and dance to interrogate and indict an array of psychological and socio-political issues, particularly in the realms of sexual orientation, gender, and power struggles. Through highenergy, often violent choreography and the juxtaposition of hyperbolic prose with hyper-real dialogue, my work explores the tragicomedy of the human psyche, blurring boundaries between fantastical theatrics and stark naturalism, character and self, humor and horror. As an artist, my practice is based in the exploration of Otherness. My works, while frequently humorous, are built to reflect the psychological toll and distress of xenophobia and displacement. I create by first engaging the psychological concerns of the work, then formally working with raw emotional content to create text, choreography, and direction—what I call the “trauma method.” Mirrors often appear in my works, and that is precisely what I view my role as an artist to be: A mirror.

Guests, premiered at Festival ManiFeste de l’Ircam, Paris, France

Sound starts from touch: air bumps air, hair rubs wire, fingers press and pull and pluck. The work I make is meant to heighten this haptic source of sound. Both the visceral sensation of hearing and the manner in which movement imprints onto acoustic phenomena concern me. I compose with complex timbres drawn from extended instrumental techniques and found objects such as scraped metal and bowed cardboard. These noises front an acoustic wildness intentionally abated in conventional musical practice. And yet, the precision of classical instruments opens avenues of transformation closed to noise in its raw state.Virtuosity and crudeness face off in my work, circling an aesthetic region between embellishment and fact, between sound as a carrier of aesthetic intent and sound as a subsidiary effect of action. My focus shifts regularly from concert music to immersive installations and from acoustic to electroacoustic media. Across these contexts, I seek to stage vivid aesthetic encounters that, as Francis Bacon once hoped for his paint, bypass the brain and go directly to the nervous system.

Over these first twenty years of my career, I have been preoccupied with how narrative emerges from spaces of thought into fields of writing. These fields have taken various shapes: the novel, the essay, experimental memoir, poetic prose, and, most recently, abstract line drawing. However, regardless of the form my work takes, these have been my questions: What is the shape of the subject in language? What are the dimensions of I or we? How do we place events in time? What is time in language? How do we suspend time to describe events? What is the shape of memory in the sentence? Where is the present in fiction? Where does narrated action occur? The questions that I’ve been asking for the past three years try to account for a relationship between writing and drawing where both are always happening simultaneously, where narrative is understood as an energy that comes out of the body, that behaves on the page like a “live wire,” that conducts the page and changes its chemistry.

Excerpt from Ana Patova Crosses a Bridge The object world bowed and slept and grew enormous as something completely without space, as a container without volume, lightless, soundless, and did this inside a world even larger and more obscure than itself, a world we were walking through, which no one knew what to call (other than “old”) and no one understood the dimensions of but which was ours, this grid that had been touched by a circle, these noisy, impenetrable doors. We had been walking for hours, looking for a happening, a boundary event that would put an end to the crisis, not an extraordinary occurrence—some magical intervention—but a small act out of a cabinet of everyday acts that we’d witnessed numerous times and never noticed and never saw the way through. We thought it would be a speech act, so began to look for instances where we might chance upon bodies in unconscious speech: we looked through people’s windows. But windows looked into houses whose structures were no longer reliable. It had become impossible to say that you were contained, to say “hello, the house,” as you once had. The object world, we noted, was drawn on by shadows. © Renee Gladman 2013

I’m interested in the relationship between spectacle and spectatorship; how our attention is structured in a gallery as opposed to a theater, as opposed to the street or a classroom or the workplace or a mall—and how that affects what we see. How watching makes people into performers. These are political questions as much as architectural ones, and I try to work between institutions—visual arts, performance, film, photography, the law—to frame the premises of each more clearly. The vehicle for these explorations is usually American-type acting, both as a technique and as a metaphor. Our cultural imperative to “act natural” means the professional actor can embed their techniques into all kinds of situations; sometimes I work with actors on a stage, but they’re equally often in a crowd, or at a job, or at an exhibition, sometimes blending in, sometimes acting out, but most often vibrating between these states, like all the rest of us.

I believe that our energetic bodies convey deeper-rooted messages than any culture or identity can express. My work begins with structured exercises designed to make contact with these messages as they are expressed through the energetic body. As kinesthetic perception is refined, we perceive messages—the Morse code of our collective body—in the patterning of energy, tissue, and motility. These messages form stories, and these stories form the “performance.” I have come to believe that the exploration of these stories forms a vital collective heritage that transcends the artifact of performance. My art is of a piece with my healing work and political engagement: it is meant to reveal and transmit the story of our collective humanity—our potential for excellence in a time of global change.

I’m engaged in an on-going experiment, examining choreographic conventions, stripping away various things that usually support a performance. Recent works have been made through a highly collaborative process with the performers, involving destabilization, defamiliarization, de-authoring, and transmission. In shaping material obtained through improvisation, my role is delicate. I actively work to not “ruin” things by smoothing over all the rough moments, watching for “happy accidents”— moments that at first might seem somehow off, but after I consider them for awhile, become what I call “good bad.” The dancers perform the work always connected—dancing together, but never in unison. They frequently can’t see each other, but cue through sound and energy—a combination of telepathy and memory. While my agenda is to resist conventional virtuosity, the complexity of my recent work is demanding to perform. I am pushing the dancers and myself outside of our comfort zone to a place that is both precarious and free. Having allowed myself the freedom to move between mediums, as visual artists often do, I follow threads within the dance-making process towards the creation of body-based pieces in other forms—including installation, performance, video, and drawing—towards generating a body of related work.

Having allowed myself the freedom to move between mediums, as visual artists often do, I follow threads within the dance-making process towards the creation of body-based pieces in other forms—including installation, performance, video, and drawing—towards generating a body of related work.

I write and direct plays, performances, television and film content, and make videos. I think of the projects I make as performative laboratories to deconstruct the preconceived, and am particularly interested in feminist and queer dynamics. I often set my work amongst groups of people and their attempts to connect with others. Original music and a very stylized approach to design elements are created for each piece. A central tenant of my practice is the re-framing of known idioms and situations usually presented to us on stage and in popular culture. I’m always trying to convey and show the edges, the corners, the underneath of moments and emotions and desires—and I’m truly experimenting with how to make that happen in subversive ways that still allow for a beauty and theatricality that can ignite a heartbeat, frame a feeling, and open up possibility.

I am a choreographer working across diverse mediums to create a deep, inclusive, and often humorous reflection of our time together on the planet. My compositional practice centers on improvisation as a platform for discovery. Through the performance state, I explore the multi-tasking and interdisciplinary capabilities of the body. I work in different mediums where I am untrained to expose the friction between amateurism and virtuosity that is inherent to artistic innovation. This exploration inevitably creates new skill sets. I work with increased proximity to the viewer in an attempt to increase intimacy and expand this established relationship. Humor is an inherent by-product of this work. Through nonsensical operations I embrace a chaos that questions moral and cultural norms and achieves formal dissonance. I propose Dance as a model for deepening human connection created for and in partnership with the audience.Â

I’m an experimental/avant-garde percussionist who enjoys working and collaborating with artists who are coming from a diverse and wide range of musical and artistic interests. I like to work with artists where my creative input and/or style is a key component of the work being created. I work in many different mediums, which may include electronics, film, dance, and theater. Improvisation since the beginning of my career is an important aspect of what I do, both in my own groups and as a side-person in many other groups. In fact, and in many ways, I consider myself a sort of glorified side-person, who over the years has been lucky enough to work with so many of my musical and artistic heroes!

The base sound image of an instrument is often that of the human voice. My primary artistic concern has long been denuding the trumpet of the tradition and romanticism of that idea. While maintaining that basic auditory vocal concept, much of the improvisatory and compositional language I’ve been working to develop integrates the benign, banal, ugly, and raw elements of speech and non-musical vocal sound into the way I present my music. I am attempting to present my best approximation of something universally human and realistic, using extreme extended techniques and amplification to create my version of song, cries, sniffles, clicks, swallows, and low tuneless hums. This work represents, to me, a furtherance of the American jazz tradition. Alongside my concern for changing my sound concept of the trumpet, my improvisation and composition aims to pay homage to that tradition in reference to its maverick spirit, by subverting and twisting ideas that I, and others, hold sacred in the attempt to find something new within the form; pushing concepts to the point at which they no longer are aesthetic to me and then pulling back to just within those limits.
