Moor Mother
The songwriter, composer, vocalist, poet, and educator Camae Ayewa (Moor Mother) spent years organizing and performing in Philadelphia’s underground music community before moving to Los Angeles to teach composition at the University of Southern California’s Thornton School of Music. She released her debut album as Moor Mother, Fetish Bones, in 2016, and has since put out an abundance of acclaimed music, both as a solo artist and in collaboration with other musicians who share her drive to dig up the untold. She has performed and recorded with the free jazz groups Irreversible Entanglements and the Art Ensemble of Chicago, made records with billy woods, Mental Jewelry, and YATTA, and is part of literary and artistic collective Black Quantum Futurism.

Aquiles Navarro
Aquiles Navarro is a New York-based trumpeter, composer and DJ of Panamanian heritage. He is also the CEO & Founder of River Down Records, a label that focuses on documenting and expanding the creative sounds and minds of Panamá. Aquiles derives his sounds from folkloric music, salsa, reggae and everything that were around. This eclectic music background, based on his upbringing in Panama has led him to collaborate with folkloric musicians, dancers, visual artists, actors, poets and really the world around him. He considers himself an improviser, coalescing his range of influences into a unified sonic vocabulary that can be incorporated across genre and medium. Aquiles is part of Irreversible Entanglements, and one half of the duo Heritage of the Invisible.

sediments is a residency where four artists form a collective. Paviljoen aan het Water is their shared studio space in which they meet daily. The space is open to the public, inviting them for an exhibition, a curated series of events, and their co-formed research, presented in different formats throughout the month. The sediments are cross-disciplinary artists: Robin Becker (sound, composition, graphic notation), Marcel Herkelman (intuitive drawing, painting, sound), Tisa World (voice art, text, performance, composition), and Daphnis (new media, noise, performance, research).
