ABOUT SAFA!

Sonic Arts For All (SAFA!) is a non-profit whose mission is to provide a fun, yet still rigorous, alternative to the traditional music classroom for the K-12 and special needs students of New York City, Puerto Rico, and beyond. We utilize technology as the key component of our curriculum, providing professional digital music and recording equipment for our students to use at all our workshops, as well as consultation to families on how to utilize the technology found in many homes, such as tablets and PCs, to create music.

Our curriculum combines “the fundamentals” - for example, music theory, ear training, and keyboard skills - with the creative innovations coming from the DJ and electronic music scene. SAFA! will bridge the gap between the popularity of electronic music and more traditional music pedagogy. Rather than learning to read music before you can make music, technology allows us to interact directly with sounds. Therefore, the heart of our program is hands on, open ended projects, where students develop a portfolio of their own pieces. In completing composition projects, students are allowed to follow whatever thread they find most exciting: maybe a pulsing beat, or an otherworldly soundscape.

Those Who Protect, Those To Protect

Those Who Protect, Those To Protect

Disclaimer Gallery is proud to present Van Tran Nguyen's Those Who Protect, Those To Protect (2017) - a ten minute video piece exploring the conflict and solidarity played out on women’s bodies in Vietnam war era propaganda posters. The video shows Tran Nguyen inserting herself into these large scale projected images of women and girls presented as warriors (those who protect) or innocents (those to protect).

By entering these images, morphing and adjusting to fit into the lines that create these caricatures,Tran Nguyen makes these women real. They are no longer just these embodied binaries - woman as warrior/woman as innocent - acting as opposition to Western imperialism. They become more nuanced and complex, taking on an imperfect agency. 

The piece will be presented in a U-Haul truck stationed outside of POWRPLNT in Bushwick from 3pm to 6pm, acting as a traveling form of dissemination that echoes the roadside billboards where this wartime propaganda originally appeared.
