In Science and Space: JoVia Armstrong specializes in creating sonic worlds. This originality transcends her talent as a drummer, percussionist and composer, as evidenced by her debut album The Antidote Suite (Black Earth Music). Techno, Future Her soul, hip-hop, chamber her jazz threads run through her five-part adventures, as Armstrong exquisitely balances electronic ingenuity with left-wing jazz improvisations. She composes music with the Eunoia Society, a group of like-minded spirits who collectively perform euphoric improvisations designed to invite the audience into personal introspection. The rest of the members are Electric Her bassist Damon Womack and violinist/violinist Leslie DeShazer, while Armstrong plays her drums on her hybrid her cajon. Music features guests including guitarist Jeff Parker, bassist Isaiah Sharkley, keyboardist Amr Farmie, vocalist Yoh Agyeman, rapper Terei Hale, and Black Earth Music flautist Nicole Mitchell.

With an extensive jazz and R&B background, Armstrong’s use of live, kinetic instruments in his music is crucial. However, by manipulating computer his hardware, the Eunoia Society will be able to offer new and personalized colors and textures. “When you play instruments, you connect them to different hardware devices to create new instruments,” she said, explaining how DeShazor runs the violin through the processor and how the audience hears a completely different instrument. explained. “In my practice, I see these processed sounds as separate entities. You can also mix the music so that the audience can also hear the violin dry her signal.”

“This music is about contemplation and meditation,” Armstrong explained. “In the ’60s, John Coltrane and Alice Coltrane were doing something called ‘spiritual jazz.’ I get into this realm, but with electronics and cave technology. In ancient societies, People went to caves to pray, perform rituals, perform rituals, and there are these reflections of what we do when we meditate.” With her technical expertise, Armstrong transports audiences into immersive worlds. There, the sound her design propagates naturally, rather than being emitted from the traditional left and right channel front her speakers. At the end of May, she was preparing for an oral presentation at the University of California, Irvine, for her doctoral dissertation, “Black Space: Composing Meditative Music Through a Black Lens to Combat Unconscious Prejudice.” There she was a doctoral student in the Integrated Composition Improvisation and Techniques course. Describing a program in which many musicians use electronic devices to create works of art, Armstrong said she was more interested in operating the computer her hardware than in learning to program her software.
