Thinking Spaces: The ICASP Reading Group and Speaker Series (Guelph)

Next Session: Friday January 28th, 2011. 4-6 PM
Level 2 Boardroom, Guelph Public Library, downtown Guelph, contact Rebecca Caines for more information rcaines@uoguelph.ca.

ICASP PhD student Paul Watkins will be presenting his research on the intersection of hip-hop, jazz music, Canadian poetry and improvisation at the reading group. Readings to follow.

Improvisation implies a deep connection between the personal and the communal, self and world. A “good” improviser successfully navigates musical and institutional boundaries and the desire for self-expression, pleasing not only herself but the listener as well.
