Milford Graves doesn’t play the drums to keep time for the band. Emerging in the 1960s as a free jazz pioneer, he opened up percussion to a no-holds-barred celebration of its full vibratory potential. Graves latest work establishes a connection between the vibrations of the drums and the rhythms of the human heart, something he calls “biological music, a synthesis of the physical and mental, a mind-body deal.”
On Sunday, November 12th, The Artists Institute will present a concert and live recording of Milford Graves playing with William Parker and Shahzad Ismaily. As part of this historic event, Graves will speak about his relationship to vibration and music, incorporating his sculpture Beyond Polymath and the beating of a human heart.
Tickets for this event are $20 and will go on sale on November 1st. Seating is limited.
