In this free public lecture, acclaimed pianist and music historian Professor Nicholas Mathew will explore when and why musicians have invoked the capacious yet apparently inescapable concept of style - from some of the earliest commercial publications of the eighteenth century to the vast aggregations and disaggregations of Silicon Valley music companies. The history of appropriations and deployments of the style-concept in music pose fundamental questions about the human body's relation to instruments and technologies, physiognomic and gestural techniques, and a still deeper history of musical transmission and storage.

5.00 for a 5.30 pm start.
