Ensemble Room – Room 110A – Evelyn and Mo Ostin Music Center

NEW LOCATION: Ensemble Room, Evelyn & Mo Ostin Music Center, UCLA

As part of Wadada Leo Smith’s residency, the RedKoral Quartet will record his String Quartet No. 11, which has yet to be played in public. To share the complexity and depth of his work and philosophy, this rehearsal for this recording session is open to the public.

"A majority of my string quartets have some elements of the create and ankhrasmation language, and the ensemble forms. The scores are essentially non-metric, and a full page represents a complete “bar” length, with no maintaining of the concept of downbeat and upbeat idea," wrote Smith. "The ensemble’s leadership articulation continuously fluctuates from person to person as the decision for continuity keeps changing from page to page."

Wadada Leo Smith is a 2019 UC Regents Lecturer at UCLA. The Regents’ Lecturer program of the University of California was instituted in 1962 to encourage rare and valuable interaction between gifted non-academics and the university community.

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.
