  • Sean Hemmerle at the Sanctuary

    Artist talk about "Media Nodes" by photographer Sean Hemmerle recorded in the Underground Gallery at The Sanctuary for Independent Media in Troy, NY on Saturday, November 5, 2011.

    Award-winning photographer Sean Hemmerle, in collaboration with the Columbia Journalism Review, took his camera into newsrooms around the country. "People throw around this word all the time, mostly disparagingly: 'oh, the media,' and 'media spin," he says. "That made me think: who is the media? And what about the media? I wanted to put a face on these media nodes, the places where news is 'made.'"

  • Amiri Baraka & Rob Brown - Why's Wise

    www.JazzSanctuary.org

    Why's Wise, by Amiri Baraka (poetry) and Rob Brown (saxophone), recorded live on February 21, 2009 at The Sanctuary for Independent Media in Troy, NY.

    Poetic icon and revolutionary political activist Amiri Baraka performs with Rob Brown, an eloquent and versatile saxophonist with a deep knowledge of jazz, in a reading from his book Somebody Blew Up America & Other Poems. The recital of the provocative poem Somebody Blew Up America engaged the poet warrior in a battle royal with the governor of New Jersey, who demanded his resignation as the states Poet Laureate. With influences on Barakas work ranging from musical orishas such as Ornette Coleman, John Coltrane, Thelonius Monk, and Sun Ra to the Cuban Revolution, Malcolm X and world revolutionary movements, he is renowned as the founder of the Black Arts Movement in Harlem in the 1960s that became, though short-lived, the virtual blueprint for a new American theater aesthetic.

    This production is part of "Free Jazz at the Sanctuary," a 13-part series of jazz performance videos featuring some of the world's most talented improvisers performing a wide spectrum of music in the genre broadly known as free jazz. Each hour-long show is available on DVD directly from Downtown Music Gallery (www.downtownmusicgallery.com).

  • Sax Soup Poetry & Voice - H(i)M

    "H(i)M," by Sax, Soup, Poetry and Voice with Nicole Peyrafitte (vocals, cooking), Pierre Joris (poetry), and Joe Giardullo (saxophone), recorded live on November 10, 2007 at The Sanctuary for Independent Media in Troy, NY.

    A "melange" performance in three parts: to see, hear, smell, wonder and taste! The trio celebrates and harvests non-linear momentum through music, poetry, voice, multi-media performance and yes, an Inner-State soup, drawing on an eclectic heritage to perform works based on transcontinental experiences, a tasty and imaginative broth. Videos, paintings, texts, music, and movements blend into a "Bi-Continental Chowder!"

  • "What's the Matter with White People?" with Joan Walsh

    Salon.com editor-at-large and MSNBC political analyst Joan Walsh suggests in her book about America since the upheavals of the 60s and 70s that as the U.S. become a truly multiracial country, the notion of e pluribus unum (out of many, one) is going to matter more to all of us. "What's the Matter with White People?" explains how an "us vs. them" attitude has arisen in the minds of many Americans (on both sides of the political spectrum), and how that racial inequality and strife has divided our nation. Recorded live at The Sanctuary for Independent Media in Troy NY on November 3,2012. www.mediasanctuary.org
