Off the 405: Standing on the Corner
This is a past event
DJ set at 6 p.m.
Performance at 7:30 p.m.
The New York collective Standing on the Corner often calls itself an “art ensemble,” a moniker which helps outline its approach to music and performance, while hinting at its creative roots and perspective. With composer, conductor and co-founder Gio Escobar at the center of a band line-up that’s seldom the same for consecutive performances, each of which might feature a radically different concept and repertoire, SOTC moves freely yet decisively between jazz improvisations, dub excursions, garage-noise freak-outs, and lo-fi hip-hop collage.
This special concert celebrates the dynamic creative exchange of the Harlem-based photographers chronicled in the exhibition Working Together: The Photographers of the Kamoinge Workshop (July 19–October 9, 2022) who fused the energy of jazz and improvisation into their stylistically untethered approach to representing the African American experience.
