August 30th – Trevor Malcolm Soundscape with Jennifer Desaulniers, Sam Bodea, Talysha Bujold-Abu and Nola Cooks

On August 30th, this year’s Stone & Sky series ended with a bang. Starting the show, Spoken Word Poet Samantha Badoa read many compelling poems. Through emotional imagery and unique stories, she tied together contrasting facets of her identity. Next, visual artists Talysha Bujold-Abu and Nola showcased their one of a kind photography exhibit, displaying photographs of Black women’s hair, including their own. They shared their experiences creating the project, including their process, insights, and healing. As well, Nola explained her current advocacy work. Lastly, with help from Ray Manzerolle and Jennifer Desaulniers, Trevor Malcom debuted two of his experimental pieces, “Moska” and “Euclid.” Each being multi-instrumentalists, they improvised together with walkie-talkies, keyboard, saxophone, flute, trumpet, melodica, guitar, drum machine, and singing bowl.
