Rustam Ospanoff presents: Douglas Sherman (The Loft)

  • 7:00 pm - 11:00 pm | Friday April 29, 2022
  • Lobby | Ace Hotel New York

Every Friday in April, we travel with DJ, selector, music event producer, Founder & Producer of JAZZYSTAN – the fabulous Rustam Ospanoff.

 

This Friday, Rustam invites Douglas Sherman.

In 1979, while studying graphic design at the School of Visual Arts in New York City, Douglas was invited to 99 Prince Street, the private home of David Mancuso’s seminal Loft party, an inclusive home-like environment where everyone was welcome irrespective of their identity. This experience profoundly changed his view of how music can unite people from different backgrounds, generations, and places as participants in an emotional celebration of dance and love. He became a regular at the Loft parties and his interest became noticed by David when he showed up early and offered to lend a hand with set up. Mancuso mentored him about his concepts and principles around social progress, music, audio, and the ephemeral life of a party. His relationship with David lasted over 36 years and he is the Loft’s longest serving back-up musical host (beginning in 1984), having played countless Loft parties over the years. Douglas continues to be an integral part of the Loft’s legacy, still hanging balloons and serving as a musical host. He has a deep respect and appreciation for music and the importance of sound, to hear and experience records in the way that the artist intended without any manipulation, emphasizing thematic development over beat matching. In that spirit, he serves in part as a conduit for the collective vibration of music to reach the listener’s ear and liberate the soul to dance, creating an atmosphere where every record stands on its own and the music plays us.

Baraye Avaleen Bar: Afghan Women on Tintype at Gallery

Tintype, a photographic process from the 19th century, is historically rooted in documenting war, including both soldiers and combat zones. Baraye Avaleen Bar turns the lens on a community heavily impacted by militarization, one that’s not often heard or even seen. These eight faces represent the diversity and richness of Afghanistan’s many ethnic groups, honoring the millions impacted by war. Our message: We are more than victims and Afghanistan is more than a battlefield — it is our home. The…
