Harmony Holiday : Astro/Afrosonics

harmonyPoet and choreographer Harmony Holiday digs in her Astro/Afrosonics Archive, which weaves poetry, poetics and music, through mythscientific gestures.

“To access recordings and writing that unite the philosophy of collective improvisation that galvanizes black music, with the literary tradition – and creates new motifs within both disciplines – one has to practically be a savant, a collector of rare out-of-print records and books, or an archivist in one’s own right.” Harmony Holiday

Harmony Holiday is the author of Negro League Baseball (Fence Books, 2011),  Go Find your Father/A Famous Blues (Ricochet Editions, 2014) and Hollywood Forever (Fence Books, 2016). She curates the Afrosonics archive of Jazz Poetics and audio culture, and teaches at Otis College in Los Angeles
