Book Afrikan Sciences

Afrikan Sciences aka Eric Douglas Porter is one of the most expansive and intensive musical torch bearers of modern experimental composition and jazz. A self taught multi instrumentalist and a true outsider, he challenges the canon and the limitations of musical expression through his complex yet mind opening rhythmical and sonic woven formations.

Porter’s repertoire covers possibly an entire spectrum of music yet defies the constraints of categorization which sets him apart from other contemporaries. Listening to Afrikan Sciences we’re entering a Universe in itself, full of Intrigue and Inspiration. At the dawn of the Age of transhumanism one of the matters to consider is the concept of Man vs Machine and the balance between manmade and technologically facilitated.

There is a clear sense of human centered approach in Porter’s output, with an emphasis on improvisation, fluidity, exploration and development. It is a sound for the acquired taste yet not exclusive. His live performances resonate through the audience leaving them enthralled, hypnotized, and enriched, Triumphing over the limitations of electronic composition with productions and performances with a truly organic feel appearing in many venues such as the BlueNote in NYC ,Prince Charles(Berlin),Jazz House(Copenhagen), Nublu(Istanbul), Museum of Modern Art (Warsaw), Unit(Japan), and Boiler Room TV to name a few. In 2011 Porter released his ‘Means and Ways’ LP which brought him universal praise as one of the ground breaking artists/albums of the year.The following year saw the release of his sophomore work ‘Theta Wave Brain Sync’, the continuation of the complex universe of Means and Ways. Once again drawing critical praise worldwide. Easily one of the most anticipated LPs of 2014, The benchmark ‘Circuitous’ was released on Berlin imprint PAN transcending jazz, techno and hip hop with pineal futurist vision. Porter is always exploring new ways to bring feeling and unique expressions into the electronic realms. Liberating perceptions by offering a positive vision of modern rhythmic music,Porter continues to build on his legacy. One that has consistently morphed diasporic rhythms into new colors. Creating new space on the dance-floor as well inside the mind.
