Experimentalisms in Practice explores the

multiple sites in which experimentalism
emerges and becomes meaningful beyond
Eurocentric interpretative frameworks.
Challenging the notion of experimentalism as defined
in conventional narratives, contributors take a broad
approach to a wide variety of Latin@ and Latin
American music traditions conceived or perceived as
experimental. The conversation takes as starting point
the 1960s, a decade that marks a crucial political and
epistemological moment for Latin America; militant
and committed aesthetic practices resonated with this
moment, resulting in a multiplicity of artistic and
musical experimental expressions.

Experimentalisms in Practice responds to recent

efforts to reframe and reconceptualize the study of
January 2018 experimental music in terms of epistemological
perspective and geographic scope, while also engaging
Paperback traditional scholarship. This book contributes to the
368 pages current conversations about music experimentalism
while providing new points of entry to further
reevaluate the field.
