Back in February, Perfect Sound Forever published a conversation Cristiano Bocci and I had regarding his work in music and mathematics. Now, with the kind permission of PSF, Percorsi Musicali has run our conversation in the original English and Italian.
In Perfect Sound Forever, a piece about Andre Breton’s 1944 article on music, Silence Is Golden.
In the new Perfect Sound Forever, I talk with Gary Peters, author of Improvising Improvisation and The Philosophy of Improvisation, about some of the philosophical issues improvisation raises.
When Perfect Sound Forever asked me if I’d like to do an interview with friend and collaborator Cristiano Bocci, how could I say no? It’s now up with the latest issue.
Michael C. Heller, the author of the recent Loft Jazz: Improvising New York in the 1970s, joins me for a conversation in the current issue of Perfect Sound Forever. (My review of the book for Avant Music News is here.)
Part Two of my two-part conversation on the philosophy of silence with composer and improviser Mirio Cosottini has just appeared in Perfect Sound Forever. Part One can be found here.
