Free Jazz Reality Television

Join the struggle of all music to be free.

This Sunday, December 2 at the UCSD Department of Music, percussionist and performance artist Leah Bowden will present an evening of “Free Jazz and Reality Television” featuring compositions by Cecil Taylor, Sven-Ake Johansson, Peter Brotzmann, Max Roach, Abbey Lincoln, Clint McCallum, and Anthony Davis.

Though not officially billed as such, Bowden and McCallum (of fluxus freak jazz duo Penis Hickey) will be playing new material, “a collection of free jazz songs about war,” for half of the program.

“The program consists of three parts:” Bowden writes, “conceptual solo pieces, a video screening (for a brand new series entitled Free Jazz Reality Television) and a selection of free jazz songs about war.

“The thematic material is centered on freedom as an ideology, its involvement in relationships of power and in justifications of violence.

“Emancipatory free jazz aesthetics from the 1960s encounter authoritarian attitudes toward freedom such as that which currently informs U.S. foreign policy; the concept of freedom is presented as an aporia in which both sides (freedom-from and freedom-to) threaten and problematize one another.”

To get an idea of what that might translate to in free jazz, have a listen at Penis Hickey’s recent release, My Typical Self:
