This is the first live performance of the Quarter-Tone-Extended Clarinet, an instrument with extra tone holes to allow quarter tones through its entire range. Swiss artist Jessie Cox makes music about the universe—and our future in it. He has used these new capabilities effectively to channel a sound world that extends the Afrofuturistic traditions of Sun Ra and Marshall Allen. Clarinetist Gregory Oakes is an avid new music advocate and is Professor of Clarinet at Iowa State University.

Our Boat: Notes on Senegal (2020)
In 2020, as part of his Jerome Hill Fellowship, sound artist, Dameun Strange traveled to Senagal to study the West African nation's nautical history and culture, visit the new Musée des civilisations noires, and make a pilgrimage to Gorée Island and the Door of No Return. Our Boat: Notes on Senegal is a celebration of diasporic flow between African Americans and Africans who live on the continent.
