Felipe Salles, Professor of Jazz and African American Studies at UMass Amherst is giving a lecture on "The New Immigrant Experience: The Creation of a Multi-Media Jazz Work". This lecture will focus on the creative process behind The New Immigrant Experience, a concert-length multimedia work that highlights the plight of undocumented immigrants protected by DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals), also known as Dreamers. Salles will discuss conducting the video interviews, identifying and creating the musical themes, transcribing the speech patterns of the Dreamers, and designing the overall concepts for the video and live music aspects of the piece. Musical examples and their connection with the video excerpts will be analyzed and discussed during this talk. A talk for community members, free and open to the public.
