In celebration of Sun Ra's 100th anniversary on May 22nd
Delmark records will release Jason Ajemian's secord album as a leader
OUT MAY 20th
'Ajemian will be the last human to reach the moon.
His music conjures a fever dream of multiple musical universes.
FOLKLORDS is the first recordings in a series of scores titled Mythadors; Portraits of cultural figures whose portraits act as containers for musical composition. The containers, sculptural light boxes with multiple layers lit through different ideas of communication. Musical, visual, graphic and conceptual impressions to inform or direct the subject matter that the performers then have to filter through their own self and situation; interactive sonic landscapes. FOLKLORDS defies genre with an adhesiveness that expands on the creative music tradition through a social/cultural lens of now.'
Complete notes from conversations with Andrew Choate enclosed.
