Improvision: Orphic Art in the Age of Jazz

Research output: Book/ReportAuthored book

Original languageEnglish
Place of PublicationNew York

DateIn preparation - 2020


A book that explores the visual modernist interest in the paradigm of music as a model for abstraction. But rather than an exploration of 'absolute music' (on which I have previously published), this book looks to jazz as offering a different technical analogue, especially in relation to concept of improvisation, rhythm, and the phenomenology of gesture.
