Ankhrasmation Workshop with Wadada Leo Smith

contemporary, jazz
Room 1344

Professor Eddie Meadow's class, Jazz Styles and Analysis: Jazz Since the 1960s, is the setting for a musical workshop on Ankhrasmation in which Wadada Leo Smith will teach aspects of the Ankhrasmation musical language in a participatory mode. Bring your instruments and voices!  Workshop open to the public.

Wadada Leo Smith is the originator of the musical language Ankhrasmation. He is an internationally acclaimed composer and trumpeter, whose work has been described as a "cosmology" and a "spiritual meditation about creation in the grand intergalactic sense." Transcending the bounds of genre or idiom, he distinctly defines his music as "Creative Music."

Presented by the UCLA Center for Musical Humanities, with support from the R. U. Nelson Fund.
