“Folks are trying to protect their kids’ innocence. It really irks my nerves some times. I want my kid to be innocent too but the world won’t allow that.” – Tommy Soulati Shepherd, co-founder of Alphabet Rockers in Rolling Stone

Only white artists were nominated for Best Children’s Album — and three of them have asked to be taken off the ballot. Artists of color in children’s music are fed up with the genre’s homogeneity: …

A celebration of the history of the Internet in art and sound

In a time that feels unsettled and uncertain, technology and those who create it will play a crucial role in what’s coming next. How do we define that future, as opposed to letting it define us?

At a special TED Salon held as part of the Delltechnology World conference and hosted by TED’s Simone Ross, Paul D. Miller aka DJ Spooky talks about the internet soundscape and the patterns which connect us all.

Detroit Symphony Orchestra

Bravo to Detroit Symphony Orchestra and Daniel Bernard Roumain.
Equity in American orchestras for BIPOC & LGBTQIA+ individuals is, indeed, a right.

It's been heart-wrenching for us to watch these past several months as racists have openly attacked DBR on social media in ways that they'd surely never muster the courage to do in person. But responses to his fearlessness like DSO's, below, give us tremendous hope.

The Detroit Symphony Orchestra was outraged to read racist comments posted on social media last night by a retired DSO musician. This musician does not represent the Detroit Symphony Orchestra, does not currently serve in any official capacity with the DSO, nor will he be allowed to participate in any official capacity in the future. We believe racism has no place in the orchestra world or in our society, and these comments sadly show how far we have to go. The DSO apologizes to Daniel Bernard Roumain (DBR) for having to respond to this in a post celebrating a new commission. We have reached out to DBR and are excited to perform his new work “i am a white person who ____ Black people” this spring. The DSO is proud to continue our partnership with DBR as a composer, performer, and educator.

A new short film centered on black women will bring together a collaboration between choreographers Isha Clarke and Shayla Avery, and director Yoram Savion with lead actor/dancer Ny’aja Roberson.

Clarke, an 18 year old who organized protests in Oakland and Avery, a 16 year old who organized protests in Berkeley, have been active leaders in the Black Liberation Movement. Savion has been documenting their efforts and posting the footage on social media to help spread the message to the rest of the country and the world.

This work aims to connect the grief and the pain with the joy and the hope for this current moment. What are the values of the movement? How do we pay homage to black revolutionary women? How do we inspire people to take action? How do we know if people truly care to see real change?

Premieres at San Francisco Dance Film Festival tomorrow on Marquee TV

MOVE // Coming to Netflix Oct 23!

Sozo and MAI are so happy to announce that the Netflix series we have been working on with Thierry Demaizière • Alban Teurlai & Gaumont will premiere worldwide on Oct 23, 2020.

The documentary series MOVE portrays six contemporary dance choreographers from totally different backgrounds, ranging from the Spanish flamenco to the vertiginous gaga dance, and from Jamaican dancehall to American urban and contemporary dance.

“MOVE will explore the choreographers’ personal histories, chaotic career paths, convictions and their translation into bodies, gestures, grace, sweat, boldness and determination,” said Netflix.

BANDALOOP is more than its groundbreaking, awe-inspiring vertical dance. It's risk management and industry leading safety protocols.

As they continue to create and perform through the pandemic, here is a nice overview of how the Oakland, CA-based dance company is managing the safety of its dancers, riggers, production team, and audience. 👇🏽

BANDALOOP has always taken safety seriously.

As the pandemic continues to evolve, we remain committed to creating, and to upholding & practicing our Culture of Safety. This core tenet of our work extends beyond the mechanics of climbing technology: it is about care of self, of community, and of space.

We look forward to sharing new work with you soon.
