The 2017-18 Cedar Commissions Night Two
The 2017-18 Cedar Commissions Night Two
The Cedar Cultural Center presents the seventh annual Cedar Commissions on February 9th & 10th, 2018, featuring new works by City Counselor (Nicky Steves), Julia Hobart, Shawn Mouacheupao, Leah Lemm, Julian Manzara and Ashantiva (Elizabeth Ashantiva). The Cedar Commissions is a flagship program for emerging artists made possible with a grant from the Jerome Foundation, and has showcased new work by nearly 40 local emerging composers and musicians since its inception.
Leah Lemm
Leah Lemm
Leah Lemm is a singer/songwriter and member of the Mille Lacs Band of Ojibwe. Lemm’s RUINS travels through the course of moments, the times between waking and dreaming, and across a land that has intelligence and emotion - at the cusp of deterioration and rebuilding. The work is vocally and lyrically driven with piano as a loyal sidekick, and the rhythm section as companion characters. Lemm weaves Morse code and sirens into the composition, calling on poetic sounds to add to the cinematic, post-apocalyptic landscape.
Julian Manzara
Julian Manzara
Guitarist and composer Julian Manzara presents Lineage: Two Generations of Midwestern Blues, a set of original, blues-based music. Playing an electronically-enhanced guitar, Manzara displays a new vision for blues guitar in the 21st century, contrasted by the playing of his father, the eccentric blues master Cleo Patricx, also on electric guitar. The live performance will feature an eight-piece band comprised of saxophone, trumpet, trombone, keyboard, electric bass, and drum set, in addition to the two guitarists. The goal of the performance is to show the importance of lineage in blues music.
Ashantiva
Ashantiva
The Book of L is a multimedia coming-of-age story written by vocalist and musician Ashantiva. Indie-pop and experimental electronic soundscapes open a door into the inner life of L, a young woman writer created by collaging pieces of Ashantiva’s journals with those of Sylvia Plath, Anne Frank, Virginia Woolf and Anaïs Nin. L’s journey from teen writer to emerging artist is dramatized with intricate and striking graphic novel-style illustrations by Bly Pope and performed by the band Psychic Revival. Introspective, ambitious and creative, L, like many women, experiences violence and harassment in her search for her artistic voice.
