Celebrate Black Excellence: Virtual Conversation with Composer Jlin

Thu, 02/02/2023 - 12:00pm

A math lover, a former steel factory worker, and a proud resident of Gary, Indiana, Jlin, (née Jerrilyn Patton) has risen to become one of the most distinctive composers in America and one of the most influential women in electronic music. Jlin’s introduction to producing music stems from Chicago footwork, but diverse influences ranging from Igor Stravinsky and Philip Glass to Miles Davis and Eartha Kitt, give Jlin’s complex percussion-driven work a sophisticated polyrhythmic sound all its own.

This virtual event takes place on Thursday, February 2nd from 12PM-1PM. Visit this link to register.
