In the Evening There is Feeling: Listening to Alice Coltrane
Thu, 5 October 2023
18:00 – 19:30
Dundee Contemporary Arts - 152 Nethergate
Cost: Free, but please book.
Led by DCA’s Exhibitions team, In the Evening There is Feeling is DCA’s reading and listening group. It takes its name from Gertrude Stein’s 1914 book Tender Buttons and focuses, in an informal and welcoming way, on texts from the worlds of art and literature, and selected musical works.
For this session as part of Rachel Eulena Williams’ exhibition in the galleries we will focus on the works of transcendental jazz musician, Alice Coltrane.
Over the course of this event, we will spend some time listening closely together to her 1970 album Ptah, the El Daoud, discussing the legacy of Coltrane’s music and the impact of abstraction and spirituality on her compositions.
You can listen to Coltrane’s music on YouTube here and stream it on many other online platforms.
