In memorial: Christopher Small, with gratitude
Abstract:Christopher Small's (1927-2011) concept of musicking provides community music researchers and practitioners a theoretical framework that directly supports our work. With ideas based in Gregory Bateson's writings, Small argues that music is an activity, all people are capable of music-making, both individual and social components are key parts of his concept, and both sonic and social relationships occur in musical performances. This brief memorial about Small's writing highlights key themes in his concept of musicking.
