Recorded live in Portland, OR on August 9, 2019, American poet Douglas Kearney and Haitian Afrofuturist Val Jeanty's album Fodder poetically splinters text on paper into a document you can hear through speakers &/or vice versa. Drawing from Kearney's "That Loud-Assed Colored Silence" poetry sequence (taken from his award-winning collection, Buck Studies), and touching on Louis Armstrong, contemporary protest, and the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, Fodder interweaves original music, samples, and improvisation to create a completely absorbing listening experience. Afro-futurist percussionist Val Jeanty brings the heat throughout. This LP is a must-have for any lover of poetry, sound chemistry and/or Afrofuturism. Fodder is pressed on transparent vinyl and the album comes with a poem insert of Kearney's "That Loud-Assed Colored Silence: Scat."
