Edwin Prévost - No Sound is Innocent
No Sound is Innocent:
AMM and the Practice of Self-Invention:
Meta-musical Narratives: Essays.
"The idea of the performer of a written work as technical executor,or as a kind of curator (as Brendel puts it), precludes the possibility of free dialogue. If musical works could be perceived less as marketable or sacred objects, and more as possible views of the world on which to reflect, greater freedom might develop. Eddie Prévostâ€™s book, with great skill and imagination, provokes the readers into contemplating such questions."
"This is an inspiring, modest and (to use a word that Prévost is not ashamed to use) beautiful book. Nothing in it is more beautiful than his own cry of resistance: â€˜I am something other than what you tell me I am."
"One of the most successful attempts to illuminate the aesthetic, social and political aspects of the modus vivendi of improvised music."
