The Place of British Jazzrock in Jazz History

presenter: Lukas Proyer

Jazz history writings have often situated the emergence of jazzrock exclusively in the United States, marking it as the ‘real’ place of jazzrock in the official canon. In my paper I address the omission of British jazzrock bands of the so-called «Canterbury scene» from jazz and jazzrock history. I highlight Soft Machine’s and Nucleus’ influence on the consolidation of jazzrock at the end of the 60s, thereby questioning the status of Miles Davis’ album Bitches Brew as the starting point for the jazzrock movement.

Performance and Context - Artistic Research in Music

presenter: Ricardo Pinheiro

The main goal of this presentation is to show a view of how performance, recording, and academic reflection on artistic objects can coexist, especially in the field of musical performance. Through creative and systematic musical activity, and departing from the implementation or incorporation of new knowledge in the context of this activity (for example in terms of interpretation, historically informed performance practice or technical innovation), I intend to stimulate not only performance itself, as well as theoretical, aesthetic and philosophical debate on artistic practice.
