Documenting the Sounds of Africa: Archiving, Instruments, and Researching the Local—Symposium Celebrating the Re-opening of the UCLA Ethnomusicology Archive and Honoring the Work of Jacqueline Cogdell DjeDje


PROGRAM



“Documenting the Sounds of Africa” celebrates the re-opening of the UCLA Ethnomusicology Archive after the recent renovations. It is also a way to honor Professor Emerita Jacqueline Cogdell DjeDje, who was Director of the UCLA Ethnomusicology Archive from 2000 to 2007, and whose work has focused on African-American and African music. The symposium will feature paper panels, a keynote by Jacqueline Cogdell DjeDje. We will also have an open house to show off the newly re-designed Archive rooms.


There will be a concert of music from 5:30pm to 7:00pm featuring members of the UCLA West African and Afro-Cuban Ensembles and Wondem Band. LEARN MORE

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.
