Event description: 

“Antiphony, Otherwise: A Symposium” brings together scholars of Religious Studies, Sacred Music and Black Studies to discuss the role of the Hammond B-3 Organ in the life of the Black Church, Black Christianity, Black Sacred Music, Black Religion and Black Popular Culture. Considered by some to be the sound of the Black Church, the instrument is a cultural object with sonic force that remains to be elaborated. This one-day symposium will be an opportunity for rigorous, nuanced and playful study of the sounds, the mechanics, the cultural symbolism of the instrument, and the musicians that make music with it.
