How {She Jumps Out at You}

Esperanza Spalding.

1. Who is she?                                                                                                                               She makes your heart beat a little more than normal. She cuts your soul rriiiight down the middle. She constructs an exploration. She is continually collaborating.                           Her work can make her sing.

She is helping me get through —

‘Imperceptible Mutabilities in the Third Kingdom’ by Suzan-Lori Parks.

Questions I ask myself:

What is Spalding’s process of making her music?

Where does the music repeat and revise itself?

Where do the lyrics repeat and revise themselves?

Who moves to this music? If anyone.

Who are her inspirations?

How can we move to the music?

How can we counter move to the music?

How can we listen?

Where is she from?

What does she have to say about her music and her collaborators?
