Swingin’ investigates the cultural displacement of urban status symbols through the hybrid crossing of African- American contemporary and folk history. The title, Swingin’, is drawn from a Traditional Negro Spiritual, Swing Low Sweet Chariot and speaks of a profound desire for judgment day. The sound work is created in reference to aspirations of heavenly ascension beginning with a composition roughly drawn from the soundtrack of the 1953 film Julius Caesar sighting the scene in which Caesar’s death is foreshadowed. These operatic sounds are contrasted with a rhythmic section based on a Dogon (a tribe from Mali) burial procession then followed by a reinterpretation of the Negro Spiritual Swing Low Sweet Chariot contrasting peaceful and sweet sounds with heart racing counterbeats that emphasize the complexity of sentiments regarding passage.
