The special evening is the work of several artistic collaborators. It features two of LA's leading new music performance groups, Bridge to Everywhere and Salastina, focusing on the works of Derrick Spiva Jr.  The first part of the program features Spiva’s masterwork, the gorgeous and profound American Mirror. Written for Salastina, it features Spiva’s signature style of integrating musical practices from different cultural traditions around the world.

The second part of the evening features Bridge to Everywhere, performing works by composers Reena Esmail and Juan Pablo ContrerasKatherine In-Young Lee, Assistant Professor of Ethnomusicology at the UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music, is intrigued by how analyses of sound and music can offer reappraisals of past events and contemporary cultural phenomena. In this vein, she has developed research projects that engage various types of “sonic evidence”—from the politicized drumming of dissent to the audible dimensions of a nation branding campaign.

Curated by Steven Homestead- Director of American Composer Forum of Los Angele; Scott Bauer, Mathieu Young, Micah Greenberg – Artistic Directors of Kensington Presents, and Salastina Artistic Director, Maia Jasper White

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.
