Matana Roberts - Coin Coin Chapter Five: In the Garden 2x10"


Constellation Records

Matana Roberts is an internationally celebrated composer, performer, band leader, saxophonist, sound experimentalist, and mixed-media practitioner. For the last 12 years, they have been working on the Coin Coin cycle, a remarkably ambitious undertaking of the exploration of American ancestry and the nature of memory told through contemporary music and Matana's very unique form of sonic storytelling. Coin Coin Chapter Five: In The Garden is the fifth chapter in an ongoing twelve-part Coin Coin series. The Coin Coin series started with Coin Coin Chapter One: Gens de couleur libres, which began the Coin Coin cycle in 1742, the birth year of freed slave entrepreneur Marie Therese Metoyer, whose nickname was "Coin Coin" (also a nickname given to Matana by their grandfather). This 12-part cycle has continued to astound over the years, with Coin Coin Chapter Two: Mississippi Moonchile woven together from verbatim conversations Matana had with their grandmother, Coin Coin Chapter Three: river run thee with Roberts electing to perform solo, and making heavy use of electronics for the first time. Coin Coin Chapter Four: Memphis was released in 2019, predominantly telling the story of a girl whose parents were killed by the Klu Klux Klan.Coin Coin Chapter Five: In the garden now sees Matana Roberts speaking out about reproductive rights, calling attention to the similarities between their ancestor who died at a young age, leaving her children motherless - and the lack of rights that ovaried bodies have today, specifically in America.
