Conflux

2020︎︎︎︎︎︎︎︎︎
INTERNATIONAL
Conflux is a social art practice defined by remote creative collaboration. The practice, highly influenced by the fluxus movement, was conceptualized and first executed during the social distancing era of the COVID pandemic. I originally created the format and facilitated Conflux sessions for the Currents.fm community, where we completed Confluxes for:
︎a 16-track mixtape
︎EPs
︎single tracks
︎visuals in Figma

Since then, I’ve continued to experiment with Confluxes in different media. On April 20th, 2023, I helped produce ARC: CONFLUX with the ANANSI Revolutionary Collective. In the event, we taught 3 musical Conflux techniques, and piloted a new format for writing lyrics. In addition, the posters for the event were designed through a Conflux with 3 photographer, remixing each others work. 

On September 23rd, 2023, I helped produce ARC: Black To The Future with the ANANSI Revolutionary Collective, TEC Leimert, and The Music Center. The event took place across four locations, two in Nairobi, one in LA, and one online, with live streams, gather.town, and Bandlab connecting the participating musicians across the world.
