Michael C. Heller is an ethnomusicologist and Assistant Professor of Music at the University of Pittsburgh. His research focuses on the post-60s jazz avant-garde, musician-organized collectives, sound studies, and archival theory. In 2016, his first monograph Loft Jazz: Improvising New York in the 1970s received the H. Earle Johnson Publication Subvention from the Society for American Music. The book examines issues of musician agency and organizing strategies amid a period of disruptive urban post-war restructuring in New York City. An experienced archivist, Dr. Heller has also worked in and/or processed numerous archival collections including the Erroll Garner Collection at Pitt, the Ruben Blades and Stephen “Lucky” Mosko Collections at Harvard, and the privately owned Juma Sultan Archive.
A reception with wine and cheese will follow the lecture.
