In recognition of recent Civil Rights anniversaries, including that of the Emancipation Proclamation and the Selma/Montgomery marches, and in celebration of its own 30-plus years of service, the CBMR has commissioned FREE/PHASE, an intermedia suite of sound-based public artworks by artists and composers Mendi and Keith Obadike. Based on the premise that black music provides record of the desire for freedom and serves as inspiration for movements leading to that goal, each of the project’s three nodes will be a multidimensional and multi-sourced remix of songs about freedom that have been culled from the CBMR archives.
