Bill Dixon: Going to the Center and Joseph Daley: Earthtones Ensemble created by Jeff Burn and Robert O’ Haire will be screened this coming Tuesday at part of the ongoing events for Vision Festival 2010, a festival devoted to the celebration of avant-garde jazz, dancers, poets and visual artists.

 

Audio interview of Jeff Burns and Robert O’Haire, creators of the films Bill Dixon: Going to the Center and Joseph Daley: Earth Tones Ensemble

LISTEN TO THE INTERVIEW

 

Daley_O'Haire


Vision Festival was originally envisioned by dancer and choreographer Patricia Nicholson Parker in 1996 and developed by Arts for Arts Inc with the help of it's board of directors, Lewis Barnes, Jo Wood Brown, Whit Dickey, William Parker ,John Schiek, and Bradford K. Smith. The Festival takes place over 7 days from June 5th-11th and includes an abundant amount of events taking place in several locations including:

Abrons Art Center,Clemente Soto Velez Cultural Center, and Campos Plaza Playground.

Vision Festival remains an unusual and inspiring event in is ability to survive without the support of commercial sponsors.You can see Jeff and Roberts films on Tuesday June 7th at Abrons Art Center in Manhattan at 7pm.

 

Bill Dixon


Bill Dixon was a musician (trumpet, flugelhorn and piano) and teacher born in Nantucket, MA. His early studies came from the Harnett Conservatory of Music and (contrary to my misinformation) he studied painting at Boston University, WPA Arts School and the Arts Student League. He also worked at the United Nations and founded the UN Jazz Society, as well as the Jazz Composers Guild. He has worked with Archie Shepp and Cecil Taylor and was a professor of music at Bennington College for nearly 30 years. He passed away in June of 2010.

Joseph Daley attended Music and Art High School and the Manhattan School of Music. He has received fellowships from the National Endowment, MacDowell Colony, Music Omi, and Geraldine R Dodge Foundation. He also taught music for 30 years. His first album, The Seven Deadly Sins was released in 2011 and he currently plays and is touring with his collaborative project with Wade Schuman, Hazmat Modine, which just released their second album Cicada.

 

Cicada CD Release event Le Poisson Rogue 5-21-2011

joda-5-LPR-2011

After 6 years of touring, visiting more than twenty countries around the world, Hazmat modine comes back with a new album which reflects their musical evolution. Their new CD, Cidada, is a cosmopolitan view of American Roots and soul music which incorporates sounds from Tuva, Romania and Benin among others, but remains rooted in a specifically American idiom - an idiom that owes as much to the immigrant experience as it does to early blues.

Hazmat CD event-6-

Adding to the extraordinary musicianship of Hazmat's nine musicians on the CD are memorable participations by Natalie Merchant, The Kronos Quartet, Catherine Russell and the amazing Gangbe Brass Band from Benin. Live, the band is driven by a pair of dueling harmonicas, backed by tuba, drums, two guitars and a horn section made up of trumpet, reeds and trombone.

Hazmat CD event-7-

In celebration of the CD release the nine piece band will be joined by opening special guest Rachelle Garniez, as well as Erik Della Penna and Skye Steele.
