This genre-defying collaboration between avant-jazz pianist-composer Vijay Iyer and poet/hip-hop artist Mike Ladd depicts a series of individual lives in transit, negotiating the hyper-globalized setting of an international airport. Performed by an eleven-member ensemble of musicians and speaking voices, the project hybridizes rock, hip-hop, experimental jazz, and chamber music. This event celebrates the release of the album on Pi Recordings.
