Aug 7 - Oct 3, 2020
The Showroom, London and Filmmaker Producer Reece Ewing are honoured to host IN·FLO·RES·CENCE – a new interdisciplinary platform for audiences to encounter compositions and conversations where sound and art can cross-pollinate and regenerate. Championing the power of jazz, this project fosters freedom, experimentation, improvisation, rhythm, polyrhythm, collaboration, dialogue, and sophistication – hard work fueled by epiphanies, a call and response. Social power. Sonic power. It started as an initiative to support musicians and composers in a small way during the COVID-19 pandemic – to connect expressions of everyday life during the unique conditions of our time; highlighting the joy and healing power of music amidst waves of disease, fear, and injustice. By transcending a focus on music as entertainment and celebrating sound as an enduring form of rhizomatic storytelling, the IN·FLO·RES·CENCE project functions as a platform to support musicians in taking up space in the art cosmos and express more pathways for creative practices of sound and art to collide – to summon collective memories, produce future imaginaries, and build a new community.
