GIOfest XII
Open Discussion with Corey Mwamba, chaired by Raymond MacDonald:
away into the body: re-thinking the vibraphone in improvised music

Sat 30 November 2019

Corey will talk about the vibraphone; how bodies are treated in jazz and improvised music, specifically his own; and how his research into his own vibraphone practice attempts to give another way of talking about improvising musicians that avoid issues of objectification and
race.
