"The first set of the very first High Zero Festival (Baltimore, '99) featured the primordial, guttural saxophonics of Todd Whitman, one of the most exciting and yet under-documented experimental horn players in the country. If the majority of free improvisation evokes the subconscious, Todd Whitman is the Id. His music is monstrous and explosive with a directness that is frightening. A highly idiosyncratic player and multi-instrumentalist with an enormously personal approach to extended technique, Whitman has been active in the field of improvised music for over twenty years and has been a strong influence on improvisors like Jack Wright, Greg Pierce, and Michael Johnsen." – High Zero

Laylah Ali
Paintings and Drawings

Laylah Ali's work explores power dynamics and interpersonal conflict through compositions that position culturally, racially and sexually ambiguous figures in precarious, loaded, and unexpectedly humorous situations. Ali uses concise—even minimal—imagery that is specific in rendering and intent. While there are narratives in Ali's work, they are stories whose open spaces often give them the atmosphere of fables.
