EP 1: Daniel Bernard Roumain

In this episode we talk with Daniel Bernard Roumain, also known as DBR. "Daniel Bernard Roumain (DBR) is a Black, Haitian-American composer who sees composing as collaboration with artists, organizations and communities within the farming and framing of ideas. He is a prolific and endlessly collaborative composer, performer, educator and social entrepreneur."


EP 2: Miguel Angel Godoy

Miguel is a scholar of Hip Hop culture and practitioner of breaking and graffiti for over the last two decades, his work is informed by the value of storytelling and the power of building community through art. Godoy’s involvement in graffiti led him to his interest in text-based art and public art murals. As a community-based muralist, he focuses on community engaged projects and has worked on many large-scale murals in and around San Diego, CA and Phoenix, AZ. Godoy continues to use Hip Hop as a source of inspiration for his work by creating spaces wherein stories of the communities where the murals reside are shared, people feel represented, and to promote a critical awareness of the need to look at the spaces in between.


EP 3: Attacca Quartet

In this episode we speak with Two-time GRAMMY-award winning Attacca Quartet, as described by The Nation, “lives in the present aesthetically, without rejecting the virtues of the musical past”, and are recognized and acclaimed as one of the most versatile and outstanding ensembles of the moment — a true quartet for modern times. Gliding through traditional classical repertoire to electronica, video game music and contemporary collaborations, they are one of the world's most innovative and respected ensembles.
