Jesse will create live visuals for Wadada Leo Smith and John Lindberg at the Hammer Museum’s Billy Wilder Theater in Los Angeles, CA on June 23rd, 2016.
The scores of Made in L.A. 2016 artist Wadada Leo Smith are composed in the musical language of Ankhrasmation, figuring as both aesthetic objects and musical roadmaps that encourage their performers to think deeply about improvisation as a resistance to classical notation. Bassist John Lindberg, a frequent collaborator who has been described as an unheralded master of modern jazz, joins Smith for a performance of Smith’s spontaneous existential compositions, along with projections by video artist Jesse Gilbert.
