Dedicated to George Floyd
I lived in South Minneapolis for 4 years, most of that time in an apartment building on Chicago Avenue and 39th St, just a block from the intersection where police murdered George Floyd.
Music for Insurrection is a sound collage, blending field-recordings I made in South Minneapolis, livestream audio from the Uprising in May 2020, samples, and improvised instrumentation (flute, practice soprano sax, sampler, fx). Livestream samples from Unicorn Riot, friends' Instagram stories, and Youtube, including a sample of Mel Reeves speaking to protesters. Excerpt from Octavia Butler's Parable of the Sower (1993) read by me.
Any proceeds will be donated to South Minneapolis-based community charities, including a community library we have been supporting at the George Floyd Memorial Intersection.
(I) is a collage recorded onto a 4-track TASCAM portastudio using a 60-second infinite cassette loop
