Book Launch: Let That Bad Air Out: Buddy Bolden's Last Parade

Let the Bad Air Out by Stefan Berg
Tuesday, December 4, 2007 - 11:00pm to Wednesday, December 5, 2007 - 1:00am

David Mirvish Books in Toronto presents a book launch for Let That Bad Air Out: Buddy Bolden's Last Parade, published by the Porcupine's Quill, a graphic novel by student Stefan Berg.
"Very little is known of Buddy Bolden, his music was never recorded
and there is only one existing photograph, yet he is considered to be the first bandleader
to play the improvised music that has since become known as jazz," said Berg.
In his new book, Berg portrays the culture of New Orleans parade music through the narrative of Buddy Bolden's final parade.
The novel consists of 70 images cut from linoleum. Stories told in pictures have a universality that transcends the boundaries of any spoken or written language providing the reader with a unique experience of a narrative akin to a silent film.
Let That Bad Air Out, is the first in a series of wordless novels to be published by The Porcupine's Quill. Feature books include David Helwig's Smuggling Donkeys and George
Walker's Images From The Neocerebellum. Let That Bad Air Out will be sold at selected
book stores including David Mirvish Books on Art, Pages and Chapters.

Venue & Address: 
David Mirvish Books/Books on Art 596 Markham Street, Toronto, Ontario

Gillian Siddall launches book at Guelph Jazz Festival

VP Academic Gillian Siddall launched Negotiated Moments: Improvisation, Sound, and Subjectivity at the Guelph Jazz Festival Colloquium on Sept. 14. The book, co-edited with Ellen Waterman, is one of a series of books funded by a SSHRC MCRI grant.

Siddall is the founding president of the Guleph Jazz Festival, now in its 23rd year.

From the publisher: “The contributors to Negotiated Moments explore how subjectivity is formed and expressed through musical improvisation, tracing the ways the transmission and reception of sound occur within and between bodies in real and virtual time and across memory, history, and space. They place the gendered, sexed, raced, classed, disabled, and technologized body at the center of critical improvisation studies and move beyond the field's tendency toward celebrating improvisation's utopian and democratic ideals by highlighting the improvisation of marginalized subjects.”

Negotiated Moments: Improvisation, Sound, and Subjectivity is one of a series of books funded by a SSHRC MCRI grant. It is published by Duke University Press.
