New video launches for famed saxophonist Kamasi Washington’s latest song

Park Pictures’ AG Rojas Exhibits the 'Harmony of Difference' in Soulful Film

“Truth,” Kamasi Washington’s first new song since 2015, lives up to its name by aiming to reflect a notion of using contrasting ideas in a positive way to help unite America during its current political climate. Mirroring that notion, Washington uses a compositional technique of counterpart, which fuses two simultaneously playing independent melodic lines to form one harmonious sound.

The famed saxophonist's “Harmony of Difference” is accompanied by an artistic video directed by Park Pictures filmmaker AG Rojas. In the footage, Rojas pairs close, focused subjects in varying displays of intimacy with sweeping backgrounds and cultural vignettes, often juxtaposing dark and introspective scenes with bright, colourful displays. Washington’s starring saxophone melody stitches the film together to highlight unity between diverse lives. Rojas expertly captures the haunting capacities of human emotion throughout, enclosing the film with reels of brilliant galaxies that harken to our link with the greater cosmos.

The film is being exhibited at The Whitney Biennial, running through June 11th at the fifth floor gallery in the New York Whitney Museum.
