PIVOT Series

Influencers

What makes music the soundtrack of its time and place or the music of an era? Sometimes distinctly different kinds of music collide, merge and come forth as new sounds and new genres. These four far-reaching programs dynamically trace the origins of styles, genres and creators, illuminating their revolutionary and evolutionary paths. From music of the African diaspora and seminal jazz to rebooting Nordic folk traditions, and from rigorous classical training to soaring, free improvisation, this year’s PIVOT Festival takes us on a ride through the creative panorama that made some of the music we love today.
