Michael Titlestad "Vandalizm: On the Limits of Free Jazz"

Friday, March 24, 2017
11:00 AM  to 12:00 PM

255  Herring Hall
Rice University
6100 Main St
Houston, Texas

Professor Titlestad will discuss free jazz, heralded as a parallel musical tradition that exists in counterpoint to that which we might think as ‘traditional’ jazz, in various idioms. Various processes have been used to imagine the creation of free jazz. He will discuss the works of Ted Gioia, Paul Gilroy and Michel de Certeau and ask whether free jazz is a utopian practice or whether it invokes the limits of noise with unproductive atonality.
