Vocalist Anais Maviel has been an exciting and unique new presence on the Brooklyn/New York scene over the past few years. Since arriving, her fearless approach to performance has made her an in-demand musician in a number of innovative ensembles, most notably William Parker's Martin Luther King Project, Parker's Plaza Band, Dave Ruder's The Gentleman Rests, Jalalu-Kalvert Nelson's A Mother's Lament, Matt Lavelle's 12 Houses, Patrick Breiner's Red Metal, and a number of other groups.

Maviel's early experiences on stage with her Haitian mother Joyshanti provided her first taste of music's transformative power. She studied vocal jazz and Brazilian percussion in Paris and then deepened her learning through travels in Haiti. Encouraged by mentors Nicole Mitchell, Jen Shyu, and Ernest Dawkins, she first came to New York to study with Kris Davis, Gerald Cleaver and Tony Malaby, among others. A graduate of Paris Diderot University in Aesthetics, her research focused on creative music as Utopian alternative politics for social change. She is on tour promoting her solo voice & percussion release 'hOULe' (Gold Bolus) in collaboration with visual artist My Le Chabert - Cisco Bradley/Jazz Right Now

Chris H. Lynn is a moving image maker, sound artist, educator, and curator. His digital images and Super 8 films capture the subtle rhythms of movement, light, and sound in urban and rural landscapes (many of which include China, where he has filmed extensively since 2008). His work has been screened and exhibited in a variety of venues around the globe and has recently been featured in the book Cinema and the AudioVisual Imagination published by I.B Tauris. Recently his work was screened at the American Film Institute, Anthology Film Archives, and he was a visiting artist at the Visual Studies Workshop in Rochester, New York. This night’s program will feature new super 8 film and audiovisual views from the Mediterranean.

A collective of DC-area sound, movement, and visual improvisers that convened in early 2015. They come from a range of backgrounds and are constantly seeking to balance engaging one another on common ground while striving to challenge themselves personally and experiment with new ideas and techniques.
