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, Haynes’ 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. 

Haynes’ residency with FourOneOne will be the second in its new series of artists in residence. The project will highlight Haynes’ voyages and their artistic consequences, from his 1980s co-founding of the seminal M-Base Collective; collaborations with performers in African, Arabic, and South Asian idioms; 1990s albums of soundscapes largely drawn from Paris's immigrant populations; work with New York's drum 'n' bass DJs and the turntables and digital samplers of the 1990s hip-hop scene; releases like 2000's BPM, a marriage of drum 'n' bass and opera; and, starting in the 2010s, densely layered chamber works, including the upcoming Requiem for Young Black Men Assassinated by Police in America, an evening-length performance for a 40‐voice chorus and orchestra, with an English text by Carrie Mae Weems.

The project will span performances, listening parties, public conversations, and master classes with Robin D. G. Kelley; Adam Rudolph and Maalem Hassan Hakmoun; Vijay Iyer; Nublu Orchestra; Shakoor Hakeem and Lucie Vítková; Momenta Quartet, and others.
