George Lewis wins American Book Award

A Power Stronger than Itself, George Lewis' history of the AACM and American experimental music, was a winner of the American Book Award, presented by the Before Columbus Foundation. Lewis is the Improvisation and Pedagogy coordinator and a co-investigator with ICASP.

Listening itself, an improvisative act engaged in by everyone, announces a practice of active engagement with the world, where we sift, interpret, store and forget, in parallel with action and fundamentally articulated with it ("Mobilitas Animi" 113).
