About the event

Personal Musical Style and the Jazz Musician

A highly prized aspect of the jazz musician’s craft is the development of a distinctive personal style. This lecture theorizes about personal musical style and how it comes into being. Professor Svendsen will discuss topics including the similarities between music and language, the African origins of jazz, the importance of community to artistic development, and concepts drawn from psychoanalysis and music theory.
