“Irreversible Entanglements on Making Revolutionary Music”

At Big Ears 2019, we’re hosting Moor Mother and her radical spoken-word/free-jazz outfit, Irreversible Entanglements. Their self-titled 2017 debut for International Anthem remains a force to be reckoned with, the poetry as charged as the playing. In this great interview, saxophonist Keir Neuringer reckons common perceptions of protest music with his own desire for substantive social change. “Protest music in and of itself is not going to get us very far much further down the road [but what will is] building community, building real relationships, building structures, where we can help each other,” he says. Give it a read.
