Teaser excerpt of percussion and electronics soundscape for the multi-disciplinary live event HALF-BREED: A Night of Multiracial Voices.
Live, the full-length soundscape is augmented by additional percussion, spoken poetry, and sung vocals.
“A night featuring a stellar cross-section of multiracial indigenous voices could be called a number of beautiful, soulful things. I titled the event HALF-BREED as a way to deflate and subvert a term which has decidedly pejorative overtones, and to directly confront the caricatures and stereotypes that have long been associated with mixed-race people of all backgrounds."
