About this poetry listening session

To kick off the Unit Structures: The Art of Cecil Taylor Conference, Brent Hayes Edwards and Fred Moten will play hosts to a listening session featuring Cecil Taylor's poetry performances. Drawing from their ongoing research collaboration involving Taylor's unpublished poetry manuscripts, Edwards and Moten will facilitate an immersive experience that delves into sounds, the voice, poetics, politics and representation, performance—with Cecil Taylor's poetry/music/practice—through the faculty of our listening(s).

Free and open to the public, but seating is limited, so if you would like to attend, please RSVP here.

Co-sponsored by the James Gallery, the Center for the Humanities, Advanced Research Collaborative, IRADAC, PublicsLab, Lost & Found: The CUNY Poetics Document Initiative, the Baisley Powell Elebash Fund at the Graduate Center, CUNY; and the Hitchcock Institute for the Study of American Music at Brooklyn College, and Constance Old.
