Is it the ocean or outer space? This cosmic jellyfish combines the best of both worlds!

Researchers on the NOAA Ship Okeanos Explorer found this spectacular little jelly with a remotely operated vehicle while exploring the Utu Seamount in National Marine Sanctuary of American Samoa.

My name is Matana Roberts. Pronouns: Them/They…  I am an American saxophonist, composer, and multidisciplinary artist… I am most interested in sonic experimentation, thru the lens of endurance, perseverance, migration, liberation, oblation, improvisation, and the many layers of cognitive dissonance therein as it relates to history. My artistic scope is wider than maybe it should be at times, and i am charting a sonic/visual trajectory that often cross references multiple mediums in sound and beyond. But I steer my work process via my own curiosity,self challenge, love of possibility, and am grateful to keep being given continual opportunities to explore. This site is an archive of some of those ideas I have pushed forth, and some that I am still working on. Art making, like living, is a rather precarious process. And I stand beloved and in awe of  it all.
