What is experimental music? Part 3

co-curated with Joe Moffett

'Considering the massive amount of American music which occurs under the heading of "jazz" only a small percentage requires the qualifier of "experimental" or "avant-garde" to narrow the scope of both audience and genre. The deep connections (going back the bebop era, Bird quoting Stravinsky, etc) between academic or classical music and what is traditionally referred to as "forward-thinking" jazz are well documented. After the culmination of hard bop into an institution (thanks Wynton) focused on chops and "respect" - the current generation of musicians has moved back to the systems-based approaches of Wadada Leo Smith and other free jazz performers along with the technical innovations of the academy (particularly Lachenmann). Music being released on the Prom Night Records label epitomizes this trend toward complex music for a complex world. Panoply is proud to present a night of careful listening and discussion about the relationships between our understanding of cognition and a music more focused on systems of thought than systems of pitches.' - Brian McCorkle
