I will be joined by my dear friends Kyle, Luke, and Jessie to play some new music I’ve been working on. This show will have themes of grace, love, hope, and knowing of self. I will be on bassoon, poetry, and synth, Kyle on voice and Jessie on percussion.
Short bio: Radical self-love, compassion, laughter, and the drive to amplify Black artmakers and noisemakers comprise the core of bassoonist and composer Joy Guidry’s work. Their performances have been hailed by The San Diego Tribune as “lyrical and haunting…hair-raising and unsettling.” A versatile improviser and a composer of experimental, daring new works that embody a deep love of storytelling, Joy’s own music channels their inner child, in honor of their ancestors and predecessors. In addition, Joy Guidry is the winner of the 2021 Berlin Prize for Young Artists.
