Sonic Relations Music Collaboration

Cornelius Harris, Wajeed, Mark Flash

SAT 11 MAR / 19.00 - 21.00

From jazz to Motown to techno and beyond, Detroit has a global reputation for excellence in musical innovation. In this project, Alter Ego Management and Assemble Sound act as curators, presenting a new body of original work by a group of musical figures who exemplify Detroit's legacy of collaborative work. Producers Wajeed, Shigeto, Sterling Toles, and Mark Flash compose original tracks using parts from an improvisational recording session from members of Underground Resistance. Recorded at Hi Bias Recordings by Chris Koltay (Dirtbombs, Talib Kweli, Electric Six) and pressed on vinyl by Third Man Pressing, the project highlights the interconnectedness of Detroit's music scene, beyond borders of genre or style.
Join us at Shiftspace during the Saint-Etienne Design Biennale for a conversation with several collaborators from the Sonic Relations project and a musical performance with contributors Waajeed and Mark Flash. A second performance will follow at Le F2 in Saint-Etienne.
