Making Music in Los Angeles

Catherine Parsons Smith

University of California Press

This chapter identifies the event that led music aficionados and audiences to rethink the ultramodern performances which were introduced in Los Angeles, arguing that the negative reaction to the ultramodern is actually a symptom of a wider cultural shift. It states that the changes in music making were the technological, the gender related, the entrepreneurial, and the now redefined popular, emphasizing that, after 1926, the Progressive-era culture of music making went through significant changes.

Keywords:   ultramodern, negative reaction, cultural shift, music making, Progressive-era culture
