March for Science NYC to Announce a Change of Plans for April 19th

Tilted M4S Canceled

As most of you know, NYC is banning gatherings of above 10 people in response to COVID-19. The March for Science NYC is currently putting together contingency plans for a virtual Day of Action on April 19th.

Details to come from the M4S organizers when they are formed. If it is possible and practical, I look forward to making a musical contribution of some sort in support of the event and the fine organizations involved. For now, the priority is everyone’s health.

Tilted Axes Creator Receives Detroit Music Awards Nominations

DMA_2020

Dear friends,

I wanted to share news of recent nominations and an award that were received in the past week.

Part of my identity as an artist has been that of being a passionate cultural ambassador for my home town of Detroit and of the bounty of musical innovation that continues to pour forth from its people.

I’m honored that I have been able to create a number of large-scale multidisciplinary musical events there with friends and musicians I know.

Tilted Axes: Music for Mobile Electric Guitars as a project is a mystery to a lot of people. Is it rock, world, or classical music? Actually, if you take a step back, it is all of these things and more tied together in kind of Gordian knot. It also combines art, science, and theatricality in all of its presentations. 

The work we do in Detroit continues to resonate via Phase 2 nominations in the Detroit Music Awards. If you are, or know a registered member of, the Detroit Music Awards, please take a moment to find out more about Tilted Axes and of the continued positive impact we’ve had on a number of Detroit communities since 2013.

Please vote! – Patrick Grant
