HER MUSIC IS IT'S OWN ORIGINAL BEAST
Hand In Hand In The Hand Of The Moon
“Free drummer Billie Davies calls Hand In Hand In The Hand Of The Moon a symphony, which implies composition, larger planned structures, etc. Nothing like that is here, as the music was improvised and recorded in one session. However, this music is not just a free session of highly intuitive and sensitive players; it has a reason for being, and that reason is the intersection of the life paths of two artists working in different media -Davies, a musician and Serge Vandercam, a painter, at a specific time and place.” - Budd Kopman, All About Jazz (May 24, 2016)
The avant-garde is innovative, daring, contrary to what is usual in art and culture. It is characterized by radical new style, original, unorthodox expression, initial rejection.
The avant-garde pushes the boundaries of what is accepted as a norm, foremost in the cultural realm.
"Serve as the people's avant-garde, the power of the arts is indeed the most immediate and fastest way... Olinde Rodrigues."
