Rashaad Newsome's practice blends several practices together including collage, sculpture, video, music, computer programming and performance, to form an altogether new field. King of Arms Remix is a score created in collaboration with Eleanor McMain Secondary School Marching Band for Newsome's King of Arms Mass Processional Performance. The performance takes into account performance practices that do not trace it’s genealogy to the European avant-gardes of the early twentieth-century but rather interrogates the history of the Mardi Gras Indian, Social Aid and Pleasure Club traditions in post-Katrina New Orleans, as well as the cultural production that emerged in underground NYC gay clubs and practiced by disenchranchised Black and Latino LGBTQ American youths. King of Arms considers a different history of performance that leads not to the stage or the gallery but to the streets and addresses not the few but the many.
