Music on the Twenty-Fifth Storey: The Mimetic and the Textual
This talk is a reading from a work-in-progress about music. Amit Chaudhuri describes a life lived as an only child in high-rise buildings in 1970s Bombay, and the unexpected incursion, into this life, of the North Indian classical music tradition. This incursion engenders an education in more than music; it prompts a rethinking, and leads to the beginnings of a thought-process to do with how both artists and cultural traditions relate to the “world,” to the matter of representing reality and living in it.
