Curated by Steven Homestead - President of American Composers Forum of Los Angeles; Scott Bauer, Mathieu Young, Micah Greenberg-Artistic Directors of Kensington Presents, and Salastina Artistic Director, Maia Jasper White

Artists: Bridge to Everywhere, Salastina, Juan Pablo Contreras, Reena Esmail, and Derrick Spiva Jr

Location: The York Manor, 4908 York Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90042

Speakers: Derrick Spiva Jr and Katherine In-Young Lee, Ph.D.

Program: Derrick Spiva Jr’s Bridge to Everywhere performs the work of Juan Pablo Contreras, Reena Esmail, and Derrick Spiva Jr; Salastina performs the music of Derrick Spiva Jr.

The special evening is the work of several artistic collaborators. It features two of LA's leading new music performance groups, Bridge to Everywhere and Salastina, focusing on the works of Derrick Spiva Jr. The first part of the program features Spiva’s masterwork, the gorgeous and profound American Mirror. Written for Salastina, it features Spiva’s signature style of integrating musical practices from different cultural traditions around the world.

The second part of the evening features Bridge to Everywhere, performing works by composers Reena Esmail and Juan Pablo Contreras. Katherine In-Young Lee, Assistant Professor of Ethnomusicology at the UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music, is intrigued by how analyses of sound and music can offer reappraisals of past events and contemporary cultural phenomena. In this vein, she has developed research projects that engage various types of “sonic evidence”—from the politicized drumming of dissent to the audible dimensions of a nation branding campaign.
