Abstract (English)

"In Stan Douglas’ Hors-champs (1992), a quartet of musicians—Kent Carter, Douglas Ewart, Oliver Johnson, and George Lewis—perform Albert Ayler’s “Spirits Rejoice.” Projected simultaneously on opposite sides of the same screen, Douglas’ installation considers the Black musical traditions (blues, gospel, etc.) embedded into Ayler’s composition, the movement of musicians from the US to France (where many musicians associated with the 1960s Free Jazz movement found greater success), and the political and social context out of which this music was born." -- Publisher's website.
