On Thursday September 10 (also the birthday of my youngest son!) I will be doing a performance presentation at the Guelph Jazz Festival Colloquium in Canada. The performance is done together with Dutch music philosopher Marcel Cobussen.The Colloquium is part of the Guelph Jazz Festival. Our presentation/performance is an experimental attempt at combining two modes of thinking; one text based and one sound based, into one. The topic is music and ethics and one of the angles we take is the concept of non-listening in the context of improvisation.
The featured keynote speaker at the Colloquium is the distinguished American drummer and percussionist Milford Graves.
