February 24, 2020
Listen: of wishing and superheroes
words by Okwui Okpokwasili
song by Okwui Okpokwasili and Umechi Born
day pulls down the sky was initiated by Danspace Project’s Executive Director and Chief Curator, Judy Hussie-Taylor, who brought the idea of a recording to Okwui Okpokwasili during one of their meetings about Danspace’s upcoming Platform 2020: Utterances From The Chorus and new research institute. The 7 songs featured on the album were written by Okwui between 2012-2018 with some specifically for her performance pieces. They were recorded on January 8, 2019 at the studio of recording engineer, John Kilgore.
This album was produced by Okwui’s longtime artistic collaborator, Peter Born, and four of the songs were first performed by Okwui at Danspace Project.
Cover art by Ralph Lemon.
