Nicole Mitchell by Michael Jackson, Angel Bat Dawid by Cristina Marx
Innovative flutist and composer Nicole Mitchell—praised for making music that is “exciting, invigorating, and keeps you on the edge of your seat” (New York Amsterdam News)—brings her Black Earth Ensemble to perform Xenogenesis Suite, inspired by renowned Afrofuturist author Octavia E. Butler. The former first woman president of Chicago’s Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians, Mitchell celebrates endless possibility by creating what she calls “visionary worlds through music that bridge the familiar with the unknown.” Angel Bat Dawid—the “blazingly original” Chicago-based clarinetist and bandleader who “captures the unbridled sound of obstacles overcome, history revered, and a future imagined” (Pitchfork)—joins forces with LuFuki and Dr. Adam Zanolini to form Autophysiopsychic Millennium, exploring the performance methodology of instrumentalist and composer Dr. Yusef Lateef in what they describe as an Afrofuturist Participatory Sonic Convocation.
