This workshop will feature conversation, stories, histories, and playing using Butch Morris’s conduction method, a singular form of large-group improvisation in which conductors and ensembles “duet” using a system of signals and gestures. 

Graham Haynes, the Bahia, Brazil-based composer, bandleader, and musician, expands and confounds what we understand as jazz and electronic music. Son of the drummer Roy Haynes, raised among the greatest figures in improvised music and art in New York, Graham’s work grows out of a keen sense of New York’s many histories of music and musical movements. His is a voyage of constant departure and return to his native city, enriched by lifelong immersion in global musical practices and emerging sonic forms.

This event is part of Graham's residency at FourOneOne. The project, over the course of four weeks in March and April, spans performances, master classes, listening parties, and conversation with Robin D. G. Kelley; Adam Rudolph and Maalem Hassan Hakmoun; Vijay Iyer; Nublu Orchestra; Shakoor Hakeem and Lucie Vítková; Momenta Quartet, and others. More info.
