SoundSpace: A Portrait of Alice Coltrane 9.20.17

The award-winning series returns to the Blanton Museum of Art with a series of performances inspired by Alice Coltrane Turiyasangitananda and her unique legacy of American jazz and Indian devotional music. Alice’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. We’ve invited two of the performers to Studio 1A to showcase some of their best stuff. The Andre Hayward Music Quintet will be performing late 60’s bebop from the repertoire of Alice Coltrane and her peers. Tara Bhattacharya Reed is a multi-instrumentalist musician, singer, performance artist and filmmaker. Her audiovisual performance, Coral Breathing, explores themes of Hindu spiritual practices, sounds, and movements in nature and vibration. Check out the full Studio 1A session with these artists below!

When: September 24, 2pm

Admission: Free for members and UT students, faculty, and staff.
