figurative senses, the fact or condition of being inspired : milford graves

still from Milford Graves: Full Mantis, a film by Jake Meginsky and Neil Cloaca Young

"The drums, after all, echo the heartbeat, and as Milford Graves has also noted 'If you study the anatomy of the ear, you'll see that the so-called eardrum is nothing but a membrane, and the so-called hammer is nothing but a drumstick.'" Valerie Wilmer As Serious As Your Life: The Story of the New Jazz

images of inspiration, a breathing or infusion into the mind or
soul of a supernatural being, a visual portrait of Milford Graves

Milford Graves
born August 20, 1941 Jamaica, Queens, New York
died February 12, 2021

American drummer, percussionist, cosmic philosopher, professor, researcher, inventor, visual artist/sculptor, gardener, herbalist, and martial artist.

Began playing drums when he was three years old.

Along with Sunny Murray and Rashied Ali, Graves is known for liberating percussion from its timekeeping role in music. One wouldn't cross a busy road with a rigid military march, but move at different rhythms.

Graves was music faculty at Bennington College from 1973-2012 and was appointed faculty emeritus in 2016.
