{a}way in/to the body: re-thinking the vibraphone in improvised music (Part of GIOFest)

CCA Glasgow, 350 Sauchiehall Street, Glasgow G2 3JD, Scotland


Corey will talk about the vibraphone; how bodies are treated in jazz and improvised music, specifically mine; and how his research into his own vibraphone practice attempts to give another way of talking about improvising musicians that avoid issues of objectification and race. Chaired by Raymond MacDonald.

GIOfest is an annual festival in Glasgow providing a platform for improvising musicians and artists, organised by Glasgow Improvisers Orchestra, a large improvising ensemble of musicians from diverse artistic backgrounds ranging from free improvisation, jazz, classical, folk, pop, experimental musics and performance art.
