The 14th Annual African AMerican Composers’ Series – Quadraphonic

April 9 and June 4, 2022

Each spring for the last 14 years, we’ve celebrated African American Composers and this year, we will be celebrating the work of four local composers. This usually manifests in an exhibition with an education program. We are still organizing the exhibition, but the education program registration is open now.

Quadraphonic is a 4-part series produced by the William Grant Still Arts Center that features 4 African-American composers and their contributions to the fields of classical, jazz, electronic and punk rock music. We have invited four curators to dig into the work of four local composers to give us an understanding of their work from a localized and intimate perspective, unlike other features. We are honored and excited to announce these four curators, Chris Terry (Punk), Mark Maxwell (Jazz), Dexter Story (Electronic) and Miguel Atwood Ferguson (Classical). Each curator is working within a genre, and choosing a featured artist as well as the emerging artist creating an audio inspiration or response.

Each episode will feature a brief introduction to the genre, an immersive audio interview with the featured composer, followed by a DJ set of the featured artist’s work. Finally, each episode will end with a brief interview of an emerging artist inspired by the feature and a presentation of an audio response to the featured artist’s work. This will all be presented online in a portal featuring archives of each artist.
The “exhibition,” mostly sonic and entirely online, opens incrementally. Chris Terry will premier his curated segment on LA Punk icon, Taquila Mockingbird with Sunny War as the respondent. Second session, curated by Mark Maxwell, will feature Phil Ranelin and a respondent to be announced. Third session is curated by Dexter Story, featuring Madlib and our fourth and final session is curated by Miguel Atwood Ferguson, featuring the classical compositions of Billy Childs.
