SoundSpace: A Portrait of Alice Coltrane

Alice’s Coltrane's singular musical style is a synthesis of influences that include Detroit gospel, Stravinsky, bebop, traditional Hindi hymns, and classical Indian music. The September SoundSpace will explore these diverse influences and present new work directly inspired by her legacy. From 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. on Sunday, September 24, museumgoers will be able to experience a variety of performances throughout the museum, including:

Density512 will present two new works in response to Alice Coltrane’s music: Akshaya Tucker’s recently premiered Shaam for sitar and sinfonietta in raga bihag, and a reimagined Stravinsky work by composer-conductor Jacob Schnitzer.
