(re)Shaping Jazz to Come

Dialogues with recordings from the Music's Past // vol 1

Soloists and newly-created ensembles engage in dialogue with iconic jazz recordings to create a reinvigorated future on ideas from the past.

(re)Shaping Jazz to Come: Dialogues with Recordings from the Music's Past” commissions artists to conceptualize a performative work and/or collection of ideas that function in dialogue with a recording from jazz history - to consider not only the recording’s sound and musical character, but also the cultural forces that helped make these sounds possible and how those forces might be reflected upon today. ausland hopes artists thus don’t necessarily ‘play’ jazz, but rather think about it, explore it, reflect upon it - whether these thoughts involve issues of gender, race, authenticity, hierarchy, or simply“sound” - and consider how these sentiments might be relevant and (re)shaped today. Vol 1 features Andrea Parkins, Liz Kosack/Cao Thanh Lan, and Els Wandewerer/Lina Allemano/Ute Wasserman.
