DFW based musician and singer/songwriter, Jess Garland will debut her new laser harp in Luminescence. Jess is working with frequent collaborators new media artists, Eric Trich and James Talambas on this performance. The concert will feature a new 3D printed sculpture laser harp that Garland will use to shine a light on the lack of racial equity in the Arts District in Downtown Dallas. With an all Black cast of musicians, the concert lifts the voices of this underrepresented community while sharing Garland’s personal experiences in love and life through song and visual arts. Through the use of light and sound, Luminescence honors creativity as a source to express and celebrate Blackness while invoking change in the Arts District.
The performance will also feature multi-instrumentalist Brianne Sargent, cellist Najeeb Sabour, violist Steven Juarez, Grammy award winning Geno Young and vocalist Audra Scott.
