Artists Studio: Carol Szymanski & jaimie branch

“…raised on Ornette and punk rock, [jaimie branch] became one of the most thrilling new voices of the New York avant-garde.”
Jazz Times

“[Carol Szymanski’s] skill at reinterpreting the essence of…language and making them visual and tactile is unique and always intriguing.”

One of today’s outstanding avant-garde trumpeters, jaimie branch, and Rome Prize Winner, sculptor Carol Szymanski, team up for the first time to present the Phonemophonic Alphabet Brass Band. Szymanski and her obsession with the shape of sound will fill the intricate architecture of the Veterans Room with a collection of instrument sculptures consisting of 26 brass horns whose shapes are based on the alphabet. The aural animation of this installation will be led by branch and joined with a large ensemble of fellow brass musicians.
