The UCLA Robert U. Nelson Lecture Series, hosted by the Center for Musical Humanities, presents a conversation with renowned songwriter and film composer Randy Newman. Newman, who was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2002, is the recipient of two Academy Awards, seven GRAMMY Awards, and three Emmy Awards. Joining him in conversation will be Professor Robert Fink, Chair of the Music Industry Program and Academic Associate Dean in the Herb Alpert School of Music, and Assistant Professor David Leaf of the Music Industry Program, who will steer the conversation through Newman’s various careers, discussing his influences and approaches to the diverse media in which he has worked.

This program is made possible by the Joyce S. and Robert U. Nelson Fund. Robert Uriel Nelson was a revered musicologist and music professor at UCLA, who, together with his wife, established a generous endowment for the university to make programs like this possible.

Test Kitchen: Decolonize Music Theory through Multi-Sensory Writing with Nina Eidsheim and Juliette Bellocq
What if we listened to music with our tongue, feet, or skin? In this interactive event, we will experiment with multi-sensory experience of music. Engaging with a writing model from PEER Lab graphic designer Julliet Bellocq and founder Nina Eidsheim can help us relate to our senses more fully, and deepen our relationship with music and ourselves.
