~.Trying to get a grasp on what reality truly is. I live in a box yet I am as "Out The Box" as they come. I dress to express my thoughts. It took some time for this evolution & this is only the beginning. I take pride in Vintage items. I honor any items from the 1970s - 1980's. Shows like Solid Gold... So many Artists, in the likes of Bob Marley, Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson, The Gap Band stay in my playlists. Movies like Mahogany, The Wizard of Oz & Purple Rain weigh and influence my mind somewhat like the weather. What you have perceived in life, may it have all been a dream? Maybe. While trying to figure it all out, let's have fun searching & banging out with everything on this Earth.. From Sexuality to Experimenting. From Music to Fabrics. From Researching our History to being curious of the Future. From the Universe to Ebonics. Respect My Vision.~

#Pan in Motion features works for steel drums (or pans) by Williams. His pieces display the versatility of the steel pan, an instrument born out of #Trinidad and Tobago, which is one of the newest acoustical instruments to be incorporated into #Caribbean, contemporary classical, and expressive #jazz movements. The concert will include three steel pan bands – the #NYU Steel Band performing the world premiere of Kendall Williams’ Rehearsals, plus calypsonian Lord Nelson’s Ah Goin’ an Party Tonight adapted by Williams; Crossfire Steel Orchestra in Big in De Dance, a calypso tune by Brian Griffith arranged by Williams which promotes women and their changing role, plus Williams’ Afro Confusion and Misconception; and Brooklyn Steel Orchestra performing Williams’ Midnight Breeze. Minerva Johnson and Kendall Williams will also perform Williams’ duo, 4 Sticks, a Trumpet, and a Mute.
Kendall Williams is ACO’s Van Lier Emerging Composer Fellow for 2013-2014. The fellowship is made possible by the Edward and Sally Van Lier Fund and Musical Arts Fund of the New York Community Trust. The Fellowship offers a comprehensive and multi-faceted program that helps equip emerging composers with the full range of professional skills and tools necessary for building a successful career as a composer of orchestral music. Young composers have the opportunity to work with ACO artistic and administrative leadership. #KendallWilliams #Composer #Arranger #MUSIC #SteelBand #PanInMotion #ACO
