Our good friend Matthew Shipp, you may have seen him perform or officially open Play Me I’m Yours, has a new project. He is planning to make an avant-garde/jazz film project together with Barbara Januszkiewicz. They still need a lot of money, so please please please donate! When artists this talented need money, you shouldn’t even have to doubt. Please visit their kickstarter page to donate!
Matthew Shipp is one of the most talented people we ever witnessed live. His strengths lie in listening to his own voice and taking risk in both composing and performing. He has performed around the world and has over 20 CDs both solo and in groups. We are great fans of this guy.
Barbara Januszkiewicz is a multimedia artist/filmmaker from Washington DC. She wants to celebrate creativity through her art. Her actions have advocated taking art outside of boundaries of the (art) system and to open it up to multiple possibilities bringing creativity into all areas of life like that of Joseph Beuys. Her strength lies in her drive to take risks and see opportunities in alternative approaches that answer well to those of Shipp. The interweaving of each others gifts promises to offer the rarest artistic collaborations and expressions.
