Michael Abels in Conversation
Award-winning composer Michael Abels is known for his scores for the Oscar-winning film GET OUT and Jordan Peels's US. As a concert composer, he has been recognized by the National Endowment for the Arts and Sphinx Organization.
Co-moderated by Anthony Kelley and Cole Swanson, the topics will explore the field of media composition in the 21st century, with a focus on matters of representation of African-American musical culture in the field.
Mr. Abels has requested that any participants in the conversation must have the Zoom camera activated throughout the event.
