Building a Public University: Three Centuries of Architecture at UMass Amherst

Join us for our Town/Gown program for the fall as we take a virtual campus tour. Max Page will offer an architectural and historical survey of the Umass Amherst campus, based on the book he co-authored with UMass historian Marla Miller. Page will show how UMass has three centuries of architecture on the campus, including works by some of the most important architects of the late twentieth century. Page and Miller used the book to make a case for the importance of the “mid-century modern” building of the UMass campus, and to call for new buildings that will be valued years from now.

Max Page is Professor of Architecture and History at the University of Massachusetts in Amherst. He received his education at Yale University (BA, magna cum laude in History, 1988) and from the University of Pennsylvania (PhD, 1995). He is the author and editor of eight books: The Creative Destruction of Manhattan, 1900-1940 (University of Chicago Press, 1999), which won the Spiro Kostof Award of the Society of Architectural Historians, for the best book on architecture and urbanism; The City’s End: Two Centuries of Fantasies, Fears, and Premonitions of New York’s Destruction (Yale University Press, 2008); Building the Nation: Americans Write About Their Architecture, Their Cities, and Their Environment (University of Pennsylvania Press, 2003, co-edited with Steven Conn); Giving Preservation a History: Histories of Historic Preservation in the United States (Routledge, 2003, co-edited with Randall Mason); The Future of Higher Education (Routledge, 2011, with Dan Clawson); Reconsidering Jane Jacobs (Planners Press, 2011, co-edited with Tim Mennell); University of Massachusetts Amherst: An Architectural Tour (Princeton Architectural Press, 2013), with Marla Miller; and Memories of Buenos Aires: Signs of State Terrorism in Argentina (University of Massachusetts Press, 2013). He writes for a variety of publications about New York City, urban development, and the politics of the past. For the hundredth anniversary of Times Square in 2004, he was curator for an exhibition on the history of the Square at the AXA Gallery in New York City. He is a recipient of fellowships from the Howard Foundation, Fulbright Commission, and Guggenheim Foundation. This past year he was a Rome Prize Fellow at the American Academy in Rome, working on a book on the future of historic preservation.

A New Brain

Music and lyrics by William Finn, book by William Finn & James Lapine
Directed by Glenn Proud

Who says death can’t be funny? Certainly not William Finn and James Lapine, whose bittersweet comic musical A New Brain strikes chords of exaltation and despair in turn. When blocked songwriter Gordon Schwinn is diagnosed with arteriovenous malformation, the prospect of high-risk brain surgery propels him into a frenzy of composing-but will this newfound creative zeal see him safely through the ordeal he faces?A New Brain treads the tenuous boundaries of life and death with charm, gusto, and a breath of spring in its step.

In a career that spans five decades and includes collaborations with some of the most iconic figures in modern jazz, NEA Jazz Master and Grammy winner Jack DeJohnette has established an unchallenged reputation as one of the greatest drummers in the history of the genre. It was twenty years ago when DeJohnette brought saxophonist Ravi Coltrane and bassist Matthew Garrison together for the first time to perform the music of John Coltrane at The Brooklyn Museum. Representing the prestigious lineage of today’s great jazz families, the trio explores open improvisation, as well as their own compositions.

Solos and Duos: Chicago Underground Duo
A Chicago Underground Duo concert contains both composed and improvised music, with powerful grooves along with ambient sound structures, folk song simplicity and polyrhythmic bursts of energy with lyrical melodic vignettes. It combines high energy music with slow moving ballads. Rob Mazurek and Chad Taylor have been performing since 1996 under the rubric of the Chicago Underground Collective, which has ranged in size from duo, trio and quartet  to orchestra.

“Stripped down, Mazurek and Taylor hint at the duo of Don Cherry and Ed Blackwell,” writes Mark Corroto. “But add tape manipulations and Moog and they are now treading from planet-to-planet like one time Chicago resident Sun Ra. Their music is simultaneously modern and retro-early electronics. The beauty here is the etherealness of electronica fused with a human component. This ‘life’ is achieved through the breath of Mazurek and the percussive touch of Taylor, be it on drums or vibraphone. Balancing audio manipulation with the randomness of human participation is the Duo's secret.”

Working within a multitude of stylistic contexts, electro-acoustic composer/cornetist Rob Mazurek has helped redefine the aesthetic boundaries of artistic expression for 25 years. Born in 1965 in Jersey City, NJ, Mazurek rose to prominence in the fertile mid-1990s Chicago jazz scene, quickly venturing beyond the traditional tenets of the idiom to become one of the most compelling improvising composers of his generation.

Mazurek first learned the foundations of improvised music while studying jazz theory and practice with David Bloom at the Bloom School of Jazz in Chicago, eventually working with other Chicago masters like Kenny Prince, Robert Barry, Jodie Christian, Lin Halliday and Earma Thompson. The Underground Collective's vanguard sensibility earned Mazurek the attention of the Windy City's creative music community at the turn of the Millennium, resulting in high-profile collaborations with such acclaimed genre-defying artists as Gastr Del Sol, Jim O'Rourke, Sam Prekop, Stereolab and Tortoise. Isotope 217 (started by Jeff Parker) was subsequently born from these endeavors, bringing further acclaim for Mazurek's eclectic talents.

Chad Taylor was born in Tempe, Arizona in 1973, and moved to Chicago 10 years later. As a high school freshman he met Matthew Lux (Isotope 217, Exploding Star Orchestra, Iron and Wine), who encouraged him to pursue the drums and start listening to jazz. He is now one of the most active, in-demand percussionists in the music.

In addition to forming the Chicago Underground Ensembles with Rob Mazurek and Jeff Parker, Taylor had an on-going relationship with Chicago legend, Fred Anderson, and worked with Matana Roberts, Joshua Abrams, Sam Prekop and many other top Chicago improvisers. He is featured on over 50 recordings and performs in Marc Ribot’s Spiritual Unity project, co-leads Digital Primitives, with Cooper-Moore and Assif Tashar, and toured extensively with the indie rock band Iron and Wine. Taylor currently lives in Jersey City where he leads Circle Down, with Angelica Sanchez and Chris Lightcap.

His CD Wolfgang, released on Mack Avenue Records in 2013, prompted a JazzTimes review that stated, "Warren Wolf appears to be on a path to stardom as arguably the most exciting bop vibraphonist since Bobby Hutcherson." Catch this rising young talent in the jazz genre.
