About James Hurdy

After Jim Winters arrived as a jazz trombonist for years, he now has now finished his second year as a graduate student here at IMRC. He owns two hurdy gurdys, thus exploring drone-musical work and the aesthetic value of unfinished music. His concentration ranges from experimental-musical composition to photos, sometimes wondering about the colonization of 12-tone Western music vs. noise.

I have the most fun using the hurdy-gurdy to play an object. graphic-scores-objects-art  Roman Haubenstock-Ramati(1919-1994) may have given our world some [...]

The artist is halfway; no longer a musician exactly. But he must think about justification which was going to be methodology. Then lying awake at night, thinking sort-of, if free jazz is or was to be my secondary methodology, wait, or, I thought, of I'm not sure, acoustics, order; which then [...]
