Please join us as Joseph Straus, preeminent music theorist and leader in the study of music and disability, presents an illuminating take on musical modernism, demonstrating in an expansive and vivid presentation that modernist music is inextricably entwined with attitudes toward disability.
Based on research for his most recent book, Broken Beauty, Straus illustrates how the most characteristic features of musical modernism—fractured forms, immobilized harmonies, and conflicting textural layers, among others—can be understood as musical depictions of disability conditions, including deformity/disfigurement, mobility impairment, and autism.
