MtA Music: Colloquium Musicum – “New York Noise”

October 3, 2018

While new and challenging musics have been dismissed as “noise” for as long as there has been writing about music, many musicians in 1970s and 1980s New York took on the label with pride. In this presentation, Dr. Patrick Nickleson will focus on how a loosely affiliated group of composers, improvisers, and performers worked to expand the limits of music—and often audience patience—in the interrelated developments of minimalism, free jazz, and punk.

Admission is free, all are welcome. For more information please call the Department of Music at 364-2374 or email music@mta.ca.
