  • Why Record Improvisation?

    Nathan Moore

    Chapter from the book: Mandic, D et al. 2023. HEAR.


    This chapter considers how recording improvised music not only aids in the development of such music but, more to the point, how recordings facilitate the types of listening used by the improvising musician. Recordings constitute an archive through which further abstractions become possible – not as a means of refinement or of reaching some ‘essence’, but for the selection and actualisation of particular potentials. This is compared to the Schmittian katechon as a means of critiquing the latter.
