Artists Studio: The AACM: Power Stronger Than Itself

Founded on the virtually all-Black South Side of Chicago in 1965 and still active today, the Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians has played an unusually prominent role in the development of American experimental music, exploring an unprecedented range of methodologies, processes, and media. Scholar-composer George E. Lewis, Professor of Music at Columbia University and an AACM member since 1971, presents an historical overview of the works of the famed collective.


Public support is provided, in part, by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Kathy Hochul and the New York State Legislature.
