Auslander Publishes Three Articles

This summer will see the publication in edited volumes of three essays by LMC Professor Philip Auslander. The first two appear in Taking it to the Bridge: Music as Performance, just published by the University of Michigan Press: "Jazz Improvisation as a Social Arrangement" and an afterword to the collection titled "Music as Performance: The Disciplinary Dilemma Revisited."

A third essay, "Sound and Vision: The Audio/Visual Economy of Musical Performance," will appear in The Oxford Handbook of New Audiovisual Aesthetics, to be published in August by Oxford University Press. 

German radio producer Michael Rüsenberg interviewed Auslander concerning jazz improvisation while on a Spring 2013 visit to Atlanta. The interview was broadcast as part of a program on WDR 3 in Germany in May and will be aired again in a different format on SWR 2 in Germany in July.

Auslander's current projects include two essays on Lady Gaga, one completed and one in progress, and an essay on the Beatles as virtual performers, co-authored with Ian Inglis, also in progress.
