Solo Gig VII Our Universe


The world of the living is inhabited by other living but invisible worlds, such as the world of sounds. And the unheatable worlds where sounds com from. And the appraently unknowable worlds where even silence not yet exist.

And the Facebook postings for these unknowable worlds, which under adverse conditions may outnumber the worlds themselves.

Based in a noted musician's decades of personal experiences, his book Solo Gig: Essential Curiosities in Musical Free Improvisation (CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform, 2011) examines some crucial and far-reaching aspects of musical free improvisation, with particular regard to live performances. In this illustrated collection of narrative essays, the author looks both into and from inside this uniquely paradoxical, challenging and rewarding way of making music, within the context of an inherently eccentric milieu.
