The UNM Musicology Colloquium Series presents Kwami Coleman, Ph.D. and assistant professor of musicology at the Gallatin School on Individualized Study at New York University.

His lecture is presented in two parts: the first draws from research on the 1960s jazz avant-garde and musicians’ interests in heterophonic musical textures and for the second part, Kwami performs original music that utilizes heterophony and “noise” in a solo electronic and improvised format.
